Anti-mask activists accost shoppers in London Morrisons

A mob of anti-mask protesters stunned grocery shoppers after storming a supermarket yelling ‘You guys need to resist’.

Members of group StandUp X walked into the Morrison’s store in Peckham, south London, to lecture people on wearing face coverings during the pandemic.

As shoppers harmlessly filling up their baskets looked on, the protesters walked through shouting that people should not submit to coronavirus rules.

And they told people buying food: ‘Your masks are so bad for you.’ 

One shouted: ‘You are conditioned to believe everything the government tells you.

‘Never ask questions. You never ask questions, just wear a mask.

‘You know this agenda is the new world order agenda. They are conditioning you for the new world order guys. You guys need to resist.

‘Resist the new world order guys. How many people die from the flu every year? 

‘You are not asking any questions. You are just wearing a mask because they tell you to wear a mask. Do some research.’ 

StandUp x describe themselves as a group that is ‘peacefully questioning the narrative.’

They believe the new lockdown rules are a state of ‘authoritarian control’ and say they do not consent to social distancing measures.

Their website says: ‘We do not consent to Government social distancing measures infringing upon public and private life.

‘We do not accept enforced masks. We do not accept a dictatorship of lockdowns, threats of lockdowns, and Covid Ghettos.’

They also question the need for 5G and various other government and charitable ventures.

As shoppers watched them walk through the store chanting, video footage shows none were wearing masks.

In contrast, many of those buying food were adhering to guidelines put in place by PM Boris Johnson to reduce the spread of the virus.

One protester handed out leaflets, while another shouted: ‘Don’t let the government lie to you no more!’

Another chanted: ‘We are the people, we are the power, we are the 99%.’

The video was posted on the group’s Twitter account, alongside the cation: ‘On our London protest in Peckham Rye yesterday we took a detour to Morrisons to wake up the shoppers #londonprotest #peckhamrye #morrisons #nomasks #awake #HumanRights #freedom #covid #Police #media #Plandemic #Plandemic2020.’

It followed a series or organised marches across Britain protesting about the coronavirus rules.

Rallies have been held in Brighton, Sheffield and London and one will also take place this Saturday in Shoreditch.

At the Brighton march at the weekend, a member of the group said it had a pro-freedom and anti-lockdown stance and that its aim was to ‘save our rights’.

Last month hundreds of activists descended on Hyde Park in central London to protest the wearing of face coverings, ahead of them becoming compulsory in shops and supermarkets.

Signs reading ‘I will not be masked, tested, tracked’ and ‘no mask’ were heald aloft by demonstrators after they gathered for the Keep Britain Free march.

The movement was founded by Simon Dolan, an aviation tycoon worth around £200million, who earlier this month lost a High Court bid to overturn the government’s lockdown rules.

He had launched the campaign on July 6, saying: ‘I believe in freedom of choice for all and the protection of personal liberties. The Government’s actions are crippling the economy, denying children education, and trampling over human rights.’

One man wore a plague doctor costume, another had a mask with the front ripped out and one donned a vest saying: ‘Save human rights. No to 5G. No to vaccinations.’ 

The protest was to counter the government announcement that masks must be worn in shops from July 24, which organisers branded a ‘liberty-sapping regulation’. 

The march, which started in Speaker’s Corner and moved to Marble Arch, also looked to repel ‘the erosion of freedoms in the UK’ brought in during lockdown.

Two months after attending a similar protest in Hyde Park, Piers Corbyn, brother of former Labour leader Jeremy, has also been seen at demonstrations.

A Devon woman Lara Crabb has also become a face of the anti-mask movement.

She posted videos of herself online proudly going into shops without the face coverings. 

Crabb, who is linked to Keep Britain Free, wrote on Twitter earlier this month she had been told off by one shop for not wearing the protection.

She fumed: ‘I spend a lot of money in your stores.

‘I don’t expect to be mask “shamed” by your staff. That happened yesterday in your Dartmouth branch.

‘Suggest you speak to them about their conduct. I will not ever wear a mask.’

Facebook user Aron Walton filmed himself walking around a Sainsbury’s store with a grin on his face as he then asked a member of staff ‘what’s the policy’ before telling him the rule cannot be enforced. 

Twitter account ‘Mr. Grunt’ recorded video of the moment he approached a Boots store and asked the masked guard if he could enter, to which the guard replied ‘yes, there are masks back there’. 

In the video, which was posted online with the caption ‘Well done @BootsUK! #NoMasks’, the man says ‘I can’t wear a mask, is that ok’ before the masked guard responds ‘yeah, that’s ok’.

And in London, Facebook user Reis Daniel says ‘f*** it, I’m going in’ before he is told by a member of Sainsbury’s staff that he is not allowed in the store without a covering. 

Mr Daniel responds ‘man, that’s rough’ before he snatches a bag of sweets by the check-out counter without paying for them and sprinting out of the store laughing.

Morrisons have been approached for comment following the protest, which took place on July 25.
