London has Queen fever. For the 70th anniversary of the throne, there is traditionally a large military parade in the British capital. An incident occurred on Thursday shortly before the start: four men also threw themselves on the ground, and the police had to intervene.

Shortly before the start of the military parade in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th jubilee, at least four people disrupted the soldiers’ march. The animal welfare organization Animal Rebellion claimed the action on Twitter.

Three men ran onto The Mall boulevard and threw themselves on the ground in front of a military band on Thursday, TV broadcaster Sky News showed. Another man walked a few yards in front of the soldiers, holding up a sign that read, “Reclaim Royal Land.”

Animal Rebellion advocates a nonviolent transition to plant-based foods and opposes the dairy industry.

Police ran over and dragged away the troublemakers, one of whom wore a mock crown. The men were arrested. The Queen enjoys broad approval in Great Britain.
