is the lockdown over?

No, because I believe that this will make things worse for black people. This will only create divisions between people.

Laaalaaaa Fri 12-Jun-20 16:18:36

No, there’s this thing going on in the world resulting in a lockdown and requiring you to maintain a distance of 2 meters. I’m adhering to this.

No, because it is against the law to congregate in large groups. I’ve barely seen my family over the lockdown, not seen friends at all & I’m wondering why I bothered to stick to the rules when others are prepared to ignore them.

Think there’s a pandemic going on in the world at the moment or some shit where we are meant to be following rules of not gathering in groups of more then 6, staying 2M apart, not using public transport Willie nillie, washing hands frequently, staying alert, saving lives etc, been going on for a little while now, unless I missed Chris Whitty telling us we could all go out huddle together and lick the Lampposts. I’ll be doing that special thing though called staying at home this weekend

The protest in London has been called off. I was never going to attend due to COVID. Setting up grassroots interventions and provide practical cultural support to local people to protect them from COVID is far more pressing.

No because we’re in the middle of a pandemic and large gatherings are against the law......

MaMaLa321 Fri 12-Jun-20 16:57:56

no, because I'm not a self-righteous idiot who thinks that the purity of their cause makes them immune to Covid.

MaMaLa321 Fri 12-Jun-20 16:58:43

...and I, too, believe that this will makes things worse.

No because I want my child to go back to school at some point this year and idiot protestors will be spreading COVID and putting the dates back even further 😡

No - I would have gone to the big one in London last Saturday had it not been for the virus.

I think the people crowding into cities are stupid and selfish. They then go back to their families. Do they really think because their protest was worthy that they will somehow be immune.

Selfish twats. We might end up with the spike in infections no thanks to them!

I'm not willing to risk going in to Glasgow, despite the majority of people adhering social distancing and wearing face masks last week. There's a couple things on social media I've done to show support and I've made a donation but wouldnt risk attending a protest atm

Zoomintheroom Fri 12-Jun-20 18:31:34

No because there's this thing called covid 19 going around. hmm

TitianaTitsling Fri 12-Jun-20 18:35:25

No, because well lockdown, covid- although l am hoping if there is no spike then we can get back to fucking normal before they start this ridiculous 'blended learning' shite.

OneForMeToo Fri 12-Jun-20 18:40:30

Nope because Covid.

chocolatespiders Fri 12-Jun-20 18:41:49

I would if it wasnt for covid. Interested to know about future ones - where are they posted?

I don't think MN is the prime demographic, to be honest. Much more likely to be idealistic (and bored) teens and twenty-somethings, who also think they're invincible. If all the usual festivals and club nights and parties were happening I don't think the protests would be nearly as big in the UK. (Different in the US.)

This is going to cause more trouble and set black against white. Britain’s history is atrocious, including the irish famine, but i thought that the objective of the peace process in N orthern Ireland Was to try and move on from that, should we not be doing the same regarding the slavery

heartsonacake Fri 12-Jun-20 19:45:39

Of course not. You know there’s a pandemic going on, right?

ekidmxcl Fri 12-Jun-20 19:50:43

The prime minister has told people not to do this.
He is elected, not by me, but nevertheless he is in charge.

I hope all those who went to the seaside and gathered in groups for VE Day are included in your selfish twats?
