The group is encouraging people to bring placards and join them on both nights- even though social events after 10pm are breaking Covid regulations.

"We are just a group of people walking the streets of our town at 10pm to claim our freedom as we Britons just about still can," said one of the organisers Jeff Wyatt.

"We will be holding political placards for good measure, again as an act of political defiance when we just about still can in these times when a British govt is ruling us by ministerial decree without proper parliamentary scrutiny,2 he added.

Mr Wyatt, 56,who is a former UKIP candidate for Milton Keynes, describes the curfew as "draconian".

He said: "On Wednesday September 30, MPs voted overwhelmingly to keep this country descending into fascism, being ruled by ministerial decree and not with any real parliamentary accountability.

"Just 90 minutes of debate was allowed in the Chamber yesterday on this most far reaching legislation. 24 MPs were brave enough to defy their party’s and vote against, but as ever, the threatened Tory revolt did not happen because as ever Tory MPs think of their party first and not the People. All the Labour Party could do was pathetically abstain."

Mr Wyatt helped organise a rally with Piers Corbyn protesting about face masks in August outside the civic offices in August. Dozens of mask-free protestors gathered to listen to a speech from Mr Corbyn.

The pair had previously been among 23 people charged and arrested inrelation to an anti-5G protest that took place in Hyde Park in May.

Piers Corbyn is speaking in the centre of Nottingham on Saturday at a similar anti-curfew rally.
