Yet another brawl broke out at an anti-vax protest, this time outside the offices of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency in London, UK. The situation escalated when the police started pushing a mob away from the building which houses the British equivalent of the Food and Drug Administration. This caused the protesters to become increasingly dangerous, leading to police taking out batons and striking back at the rioters, which protesters later used to their advantage by saying the police were arbitrarily targeting them. At least four police officers were hurt in the attacks and surely some protesters were as well. These demonstrations have popped up in response to a new rule that home care workers in England will have to be vaccinated by October and British nightclubs and other venues with large crowds will require patrons to show full proof of vaccination by the end of September. This is all happening at a time when COVID cases and deaths have spiked sharply in the UK. With people like these protesters remaining defiant about not getting their shots, the future of the pandemic remains uncertain as it increases the likelihood that more variants could come about in the next few months.
