Anti-vaccinators attempted to storm the former BBC headquarters in west London on Monday. There were quarrels and fights with policemen who were guarding the entrance in front of the building.
Vaccines They gathered in the early afternoon at Shepherd’s Bush Green. The official voice group organized the presentation of opponents of vaccination certificates and immunization of children. Later some protesters marched towards the nearby former BBC headquarters, where they attempted to storm a building.
According to British media reports and videos posted by them, dozens of people took part in an attempt to enter the building – and at least one succeeded. The recordings also show that officers were forced to use batons to defend the building.
Vaccines stormed the former BBC building
Greater London Police said they had not yet made any arrests in connection with the incident, but that they had seized evidence. The building that protesters tried to storm is part of a former office complex of a public station BBC, formerly known as BBC Media Village or BBC White City.
However, most of the buildings were sold in 2013 to a private developer, and the only remaining part of the BBC is BBC Studioworks, a television subsidiary – also on a commercial basis to other stations.
The station’s headquarters, where it is broadcast, among others BBC News Channel is located in a different part of London.
Vaccination against Covid-19 is not mandatory in the UK, but the government has announced that only vaccinated people will be allowed into nightclubs from September. It also encourages mass event organizers to use vaccination certificates. However, it is a matter of very high sentiment, and even in the ruling Conservative Party there are a large number of MPs who are against vaccine certification.
