'Down with masks, people have the right to breathe freely', a  placard displayed at an anti-mask demonstration that attracted approximately 1,000 people to the Place des Nations in front of the United Nations building. Most were unmasked despite an obligation to wear face coverings during gatherings of this size. The protest attracted a diverse group of people, many with particular interests, ranging from anti-vaxxers, Qanon conspiracy followers, libertarians, and other conspiracy-theorists, with the World Health Organisation (headquartered nearby), and national governments as particular enemies.
