On Saturday, July 24, 2021, citizens of Santa Barbara participated in its second Worldwide Rally for Freedom, joining over 200 cities in over 40 countries around the world taking a stand for medical freedom. Worldwide Rallies for Freedom were planned in the USA as well as in over 400 locations including Argentina, Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Israel, Lebanon, New Zealand, Scotland, Switzerland, Uruguay.
Demonstrators gathered in the state Sunday, taking part in a “worldwide rally for freedom.” Organizers wanted to protect medical choice and health freedom. They were against mandates for vaccines and vaccine passports. They had a networking event where people can connect locally.
The rally started with a march starting at noon at Stearn’s Wharf. All were invited to join the march which ended at De La Guerra Plaza, with a family-friendly, peaceful gathering-the “Freedom Festival”.
This march was organized by Stand Up Santa Barbara, a small group of local, action-oriented, non-partisan, concerned citizens who galvanized around pandemic issues such as mandated vaccines, vaccine passports, informed consent, medical choice, and health freedom.

- Freedom of Speech

Mass anti-vaxx protests occurred in London on July 24th, 2021 with one conspiracy theorist causing outrage for telling doctors and nurses that they could be tried and hung in Nuremberg-style trials.
Speaking at the protests were several renowned right-wing conspiracy theorists, including David Icke, Katie Hopkins – who just got refused entry to Australia for refusing to produce COVID-19 documentation – and Gillian McKeith.
