Anti-mask activists gathered in Hyde Park to protest the mandatory wearing of face coverings in shops and supermarkets.

反口罩活动人士聚集在海德公园以抗议商店与超市强制要求佩戴口罩的规定。

Demonstrators at the event in London on Sunday were seen carrying signs that read “no masks” and “I will not be masked, tested, tracked”, in opposition to the UK government’s coronavirus restrictions.

此次在伦敦爆发的示威活动中有人看到抗议者们举着诸如“抵制口罩”以及“拒绝被戴上口罩,乐通对战游戏:拒绝检测和被追踪”的标志以反对英国政府的疫情禁令。



One speaker at the event wore a g-string on her face in protest, while a man was pictured wearing a vest which said: “Save human rights. No to 5G. No to vaccinations.”

该起示威活动的一位发言人脸上戴着性感内衣以表示不满,画面上还有一位身穿背心的男子称:“拯救人权,抵制5G,拒绝接种疫苗。”

The protest was set up by the group “Keep Britain Free”, which was founded by businessman and entrepreneur Simon Dolan.

该起抗议是由“保卫英国自由”组织发起的,该组织的创建者是商人与企业家Simon Dolan。

Mr Dolan lost a High Court bid earlier this month to overturn the government’s lockdown for the pandemic.

本月早些时候Dolan先生曾在最高法院要求推翻政府的疫情封锁令但最终失败。

Face coverings will be made mandatory in shops from 24 July, with a fine of up to £100 for those who disobey the rule.

自7月24日起进入商店将强制要求佩戴口罩,违法者会被处以100英镑罚款。

Clare Wills-Harrison, one of the event’s organisers, told Sky News that the protesters were “campaigning for the return of our rights and liberties”.

作为该起抗议的组织者之一,Clare Wills-Harrison告诉空中新闻称他们是为了“夺回我们的人权与自由。”

However, the group’s opposition to the new rules on face coverings is not shared by the general public.

当然了该组织反对关于口罩新规定的举动并没有获得大众的支持。

A poll by Opinium published on Sunday in the Observer showed 71 per cent of adults in England supported the decision to make face coverings mandatory in shops, with just 13 per cent opposing the order.

Opinium在周日于观察家报上发表的一篇民意调查显示英国成年人中有71%支持在商店强制佩戴口罩,只有13%的人表示反对。

Professor Sir Ian Diamond, the UK’s national statistician, told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday that 61 per cent of the population had already been using face coverings in the last week.

国家统计部门的Ian Diamond教授在周日接受空中新闻的Sophy Ridge采访时称截止上周已有61%的国内民众开始配戴口罩。

“What we are showing is that week on week there is an increase in the number of people who are using face coverings,” Sir Ian, the head of the Office for National Statistics, said.
“So last week the data would show that 61 per cent of the population had used a face mask in the last week and that’s up from 50 per cent the week before.”
He added that face coverings were becoming “the norm” in many parts of society, especially in Scotland, where face coverings in shops were made mandatory earlier this month.

这位国家统计局局长表示:“而这个数字每周都在增长,在上上周这个数据是50%”,他还补充称本月早些时候国内许多地区尤其是苏格兰进商店强制佩戴口罩早已成为“惯例”。
