Around a hundred people demonstrated against Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s invitation to 20 of the world’s most prominent business leaders to advocate British interests abroad on Monday evening. 

Unfortunately for the Microsoft founder, protestors shouted “arrest Bill Gates” and held up placards criticising him. 

Additionally, there were videos showing protestors attacking passing cars while trying to see through the tinted windows to see who was inside. Police immediately responded by putting up a barrier and fending away the demonstrators.

Late in the afternoon, a live feed of the demonstration documented the growing number of people in the area. 

It was about 6 p.m. when the audience started to become excited. Chanting could be heard, as could many others using microphones to make their voices heard. 

Activists demanded Gates be arrested dubbing him a “murderer.” 

Protesters encircled a car as it approached Downing Street, frantically trying to find out who was inside. 

Authorities pulled the demonstrators back before they could yell for Bill Gates’ arrest, which they did. 

The vehicle was led by police to a different route so that it could approach Downing Street from a different direction. 

It’s unclear exactly who was in the vehicle at the time.
