British politicians have condemned protests that took place in London.
Thousands of people took to the streets of London in order to defend statues from being vandalized by far-left activists.
Various people attended, including British veterans who peacefully protected statues as we reported on earlier.
However things turned violent as some football hooligans who took part in the protests attacked police with bottles and at least one smoke bomb.
This caused the British Home Secretary to condemn protesters who committed violence, saying it is “thoroughly unacceptable thuggery.”
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also condemned the violence, saying “racist thuggery has no place on our streets. Anyone attacking the police will be met with the full force of the law.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan also critisized the violence calling it “totally unacceptable”.
A statement from the London Ambulance Service said that they had treated 15 people, including 2 police officers who were injured at the protests.
Last weekend 27 police officers were hurt during “anti-racism” protests in London., which the BBC claimed was “largely peaceful”.
