LONDON – Opposition to the royal system in England continues to grow after the death of Queen Elizabeth II who wants to question the survival of this system.
Anti-monarchy demonstrations took place during the proclamation of King Charles III. Police reportedly arrested two people. Anti-monarchy protests have divided public opinion.
According to reports in The Independent, two anti-monarchy protesters were arrested. One man, Syomn Hill, on his way home in Oxford told The Independent that he was arrested after shouting “Who elected him?” Hill accused the police of abusing their powers, claiming that the new Police and Crime Act had created a draconian atmosphere that had “significantly curtailed freedom of expression and damaged democracy.” In Edinburgh, a 22-year-old woman was arrested after displaying a sign calling for the abolition of the monarchy.
