Where Did #NotAMob Come From?

Very soon after the Kenmure Street protest we were hearing that the Home Office had called the peaceful protest a “mob”. One of the first journalists to report this was BBC Newsnight’s Lewis Goodall:

One anonymous neighbour decided that something should be done to respond. A leaflet appeared in closes asking people to come out onto the street on Saturday in a Covid-safe way and show that we were not a mob but a community.

At the vigil a banner said #NotAMob. Our campaign was born.
