Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers in trouble AGAIN as he is arrested by police in anti-lockdown protest

Jeremy Corbyn‘s brother Piers was arrested for the second time in 2021 at an anti-lockdown protest in London‘s Hyde Park.

Corbyn, 73, was among 17 people who were arrested for breaching Health Protection Regulations at the demonstration at Speaker’s Corner, in Hyde Park, on January 2. 

A crowd of between 200 and 300 people gathered to protest against lockdown restrictions and their civil liberties being curtailed. 

It came after Corbyn was fined and arrested on New Year’s Day after leading a New Year’s Eve anti-lockdown protest near the London Eye, in the centre of the capital.

Corbyn, brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, posted a video of what was dubbed the ‘NYE Party of Parties’ on his Twitter feed, proclaiming: ‘TOTAL SUCCESS! #NYEPartyofParties by London Eye. 

‘Over 1000 defied all threats +chanted #LetLondonLive! & #Corbyn4London after I announced I will stand for Mayor! Thank you +well done all!’ 

The conspiracy theorist has now been arrested at least five times since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and has received fines totalling more than £10,000.

It called on people to “stand with your loved ones” in an online post.

Corbyn has become one of the country’s leading anti-lockdown campaigners.

He has found himself involved in multiple legal battles over his opposition to lockdown measures, claiming they are an attack on civil liberties.

He could be seen leading a group of protestors chanting ‘Freedom’ as they approached a line of police.

Seconds later, he was confronted by officers and appeared to be having a conversation with them before the fixed penalty notice of £200 was believed to have been issued.
