Anti-lockdown protesters are co-opting the use of Holocaust symbol, the yellow star.
At protests which took place in London this weekend, demonstrators at a ‘Unite for Freedom’ march wore the symbol to make the false claim that government measures to control the spread of coronavirus are comparable to Jews being forced to wear yellow stars during the Holocaust as a means of identification.
During WWII, the symbol was used to humiliate Jews and mark them out for segregation. The policy also made it easier to identity Jews for deportation to concentration camps. This weekend, protesters donned the stars and wrote “No Covid certificates” on them, while others held banners that said “stop the vaccine Holocaust” on them.
Reacting to the protesters, numerous people slammed the protestors.
