Anti-vaccine protest leader is 'mum-of-four who says coronavirus doesn't exist'

The leader of an anti-vaccine protest in London is a suspended nurse who has previously compared lockdown restrictions to the Holocaust, according to reports. Mum-of-four Kate Shemirani calls the global Covid-19 pandemic a ‘scamdemic’ and says the disease which has killed thousands in the country ‘doesn’t exist,’ it is claimed. And she reportedly says the coronavirus pandemic is a conspiracy to control the masses.

The 54-year-old from East Sussex controversially claims its symptoms are ‘linked to the roll out of new 5G wireless technology’. She believes a vaccine that scientists are working on to tackle the deadly disease is poisonous and a political tool to change people’s DNA.

According to the Daily Mail, Ms Shemirani compares the lockdown restrictions to the Holocaust, asking whether the public will wake up ‘on the cattle truck? Or in the showers?’

The newspaper claimed she had been suspended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council in July. Speaking about a Covid-19 vaccine, Ms Shemirani told them: “They will be able to look at every aspect of what is going on in our brains. “Not only can they pick it up, they can download into us.”

Addressing protesters at the anti-lockdown protest in Trafalgar Square yesterday, organiser Ms Shemirani said: “We are the resistance.” She also shocked thousands when she wrote: “Murder. Genocide.

The NHS is the new Auschwitz.” Her Twitter following has more than trebled over the past few weeks to 25,000 followers.

Her Facebook site, which had 14,000 followers, has been removed. Meanwhile at the protest yesterday, dozens of officers, including some on horseback, were repelled by human blockades with loud cheering and chanting as they tried to make arrests.

Scotland Yard said the large crowds of people are “putting themselves and others at risk” just a day after Mayor of London Sadiq Khan warned it is “increasingly likely” restrictions will be needed to slow the spread of coronavirus in the capital, adding he was “extremely concerned” about the rate of transmission in London. The number of cases per 100,000 people over seven days is reported to have increased in London from 18.8 to around 25. One protester appeared to have a bloodied head following a scuffle, while another was seen receiving medical attention on the ground as several officers surrounded the scene.

Traffic around Trafalgar Square came to a halt during the demonstration, with one protester seen apparently spitting through the open window of a taxi whose driver had beeped the horn in frustration.

Rally organisers sold T-shirts bearing 5G conspiracy theories and advocating the legalisation of cannabis, with banners calling for Government scientific advisers to be sacked and declaring Covid-19 a “hoax”. The protest was advertised with an image showing a vaccine bottle and urging people to “Come together, resist and act.” One speaker at the rally, Professor Dolores Cahill of University College Dublin (UCD), expressed the view that the coronavirus vaccine will “make people sick”, going against mainstream scientific opinion.

The UCD has previously disassociated itself from views on Covid-19 aired by Prof Cahill, who also chairs the Eurosceptic Irish Freedom Party, the Irish Times reported. Vaccines are the most effective way to prevent infectious disease and have virtually eradicated smallpox, polio and tetanus in the UK, the NHS says. But if people stop getting vaccinated then diseases can quickly spread again, it said, pointing to a spike in measles and mumps between 2016 and 2018.

There is no evidence that vaccines cause autism, allergies or other conditions, weaken the immune system in any way, or contain harmful ingredients, it adds.

The World Health Organization says immunisation prevents two to three million deaths per year.

Protests are exempt from new legal restrictions introduced on Monday limiting groups to six, but only if it is “organised in compliance with Covid-19 Secure guidance”, the Government said.
