Protests in the UK

More than 15,000 protesters marched across the UK on Saturday, demanding reforms to childcare and maternity leave pay, the Evening Standard reports.

"More than 15,000 protesters took part in marches across the UK calling for reforms to childcare and parental leave," the paper wrote.

Also, Pregnant Then Screwed marches called "Mummy Marches" were known to have taken place in London, Cardiff, Manchester, Birmingham and other cities across the country.

Placards held by protesters in Halloween costumes read "The future will not grow itself" and "Affordable childcare now".

The Evening Standard reported that in London, thousands of protesters gathered in Trafalgar Square and moved towards the Palace of Westminster.

The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB), which "fights for the right to leave the country and criticise Islam without fear or intimidation", is known to have helped organise the protest in Trafalgar Square, which is estimated to have attracted several thousand people. The 22-year-old's death on September 16, after she was detained by police in the capital Tehran for allegedly failing to adhere to Iran's strict Islamic dress code, sparked mass protests in the country.

Earlier, families and young children took part in the March of Mummies demonstration, calling for government reforms to childcare and parental leave. People were seen wearing bandages, vampire costumes and witch hats as they took part in a Halloween-themed protest organised by campaign group Pregnant Then Screwed.

Mothers stood in Downing Street shouting "Dear Rishi Sunak, we want our choices back" as they protested against unaffordable childcare structures and maternity leave.

Also in Trafalgar Square begins a protest organised by the United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC), which is "demanding justice" over deaths at the hands of police.

This comes after Chris Kaba was shot dead by police early last month (5 September) and protesters have come together to demand answers. The protest also "demands justice" for all people "who have died after coming into contact with the police or the state".
