Up to 25 protesters were booed by crowds as they attempted to smash through security measures along the Mall at the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee today – before being dragged to the sidelines through horse manure.
Metropolitan Police officers were forced to pounce on the eco-morons ahead of the Trooping the Colour, as officers were filmed racing over barriers to where the parade was to be held, before dragging the disruptors along the ground and out of the way of the procession.
Incredibly two of the protesters – who were from Animal Rebellion – were able to sit in the middle of the Mall as the marching band approached.
Officers hauled them out of the way as the musicians walked by them avoiding them completely, prompting applause to the police and boos to the activists.
Minutes later Animal Rebellion proudly tweeted: ‘Animal Rebels disrupt the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations demanding that Royal Land is Reclaimed.
