On Monday evening, dozens of protesters blocked the entrance to Downing Street as Prime Minister Boris Johnson invited 20 of the world’s most influential business figures, including Bill Gates and JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon to promote Britain’s interests internationally.

However, angry protesters, outside Downing street in London, chanted “arrest Bill Gates,” with some holding anti-vaccine signs aimed at the Microsoft founder. Video showed the enraged crowd slamming into an incoming car while trying to peer through the tinted windows to see who was inside, with police quickly setting up a cordon and fighting off the protesters. It’s not known yet that who was inside the car.
