Did she die in vain?

 Via a friend in Nottingham, I see this story of a bookshop that's resisting the lockdown, citing Article 61 of the Magna Carta.

For the record, it seems this doesn't justify a general right to dissent - certainly not for everyone and not one that's still in force today either.

Still, I've been discussing lockdown protests with some of my students, so this is another nice example for the file.
