People's Assembly protests due to be held in Lowestoft and Ipswich to highlight Government's 'mishandling' of coronavirus crisis




Protesters are set to gather in two Suffolk towns tomorrow as part of a national day of action against the Government's handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Rallies will be held in Lowestoft 's Britten Centre and outside BBC Radio Suffolk in St Matthews St, Ipswich , as well as in other towns and cities across the country, from 11am.

The protests have been organised by local People's Assembly groups who want to highlight the Government's 'mishandling of the Covid-19 crisis'.

A People's Assembly spokesman said: "We have been left paying the price for the incompetence, lies and manipulation of the Tories."

The 'distastrous' track and trace system, the millions losing their jobs and 'poor' school safety are among the reasons for the organisation's day of action.

The spokesman added that all protests, rallies and marches have been organised in a safe way, with each event under 'constant review'.

It comes just days after Boris Johnson, the prime minister, announced a three-tier lockdown system across England, with extrarestrictions due to be introduced in Essex tomorrow.
