Thousands of people have protested in London against mandatory COVID vaccines for NHS staff ahead of the February deadline for the first dose.

Government regulations say staff in the health service must be fully jabbed by the 1st of April and there are concerns it could see 70,000 people lose their jobs.

NHS staff protest mandatory Covid vaccination plans

Can the government really afford to lose thousands of healthcare workers?


NHS staff in England face the sack if they aren’t fully vaccinated by April, but thousands are yet to have even one jab.

To meet the government deadline they need to have had their first dose by February 3.

UK bill ‘limiting’ right to protest sparks outrage | DW News

People have been rallying in cities across the UK to protest against a new bill they say is an attack on the right to demonstrate. The controversial ‘police and crime bill’ would grant police greater powers to crack down on disruptive protests, but critics say it will also make it more difficult to hold peaceful demonstrations.
In a statement, the Home Office told DW: "Freedom to protest within the law is a fundamental part of our democracy, but the police must swiftly deal with the selfish minority of protestors whose actions endanger the public (…)."
The UK government is targeting environmental activists. It wants to stop disruptive protest. Public nuisance will be a new offense, carrying a maximum penalty of up to ten years in prison or an unlimited fine. And that’s highly controversial.
NGOs and human rights groups have staged many protests. They see the bill as an attack on democracy itself. And even conservative legal observers like the former attorney general are concerned.
