Leeds' Democracy Demonstration
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in cities across the country including Manchester, Belfast and here in York and Leeds to protest about the imminent prorogation of Parliament. Perhaps understandably in the light of recent political events, the protests have been conflated with a number of other concerns, some related, some not.
The Jo Cox Foundation, which was set up in the wake of Batley and Spen MP's murder in 2016, warned that this anger "should not spill over into something more dangerous".
