None wore masks or resected any social distancing. Many carried signs suggesting the virus was a hoax or the world is becoming a prison.

Speakers at the event said they were simply fighting for the right to breathe.

Also, in the crowd were nightclub workers who feel the restrictions are harming their job prospects.

Police maintained a distance from the crowd.
