Transport Staff Warned About Anti-Mask Posters That Have Razor Blades Attached To Them

  • London transport staff have been warned about anti-mask posters that have razor blades on them.
  • The posters, which bear the message “Masks don’t work,” have been found in tube and rail stations.
  • The Rail, Maritime, and Transport union called on the courts to take the “hardest possible line.”

The BBC reported that London transport staff had been warned about taking down anti-mask posters after razor blades were found attached to their back.

The Rail, Maritime, and Transport (RMT) union said Friday that it has formally raised the issue with Transport for London (TfL) staff and called for police to take the “hardest possible line” against those found responsible.

The posters, which were discovered in the capital city’s rail and tube stations, bear the message: “Masks don’t work.”

“Any anti-vax conspiracy theorist resorting to this disgusting practice of lacing their propaganda with razor blades needs to know that they will face criminal prosecution and the highest possible sentences,” General Secretary of the RMT Mick Lynch said according to Sky News.

A spokesperson for TfL told Sky that they are working to “urgently remove unauthorized materials” from its network.

“The safety of our customers and colleagues is paramount, and we have issued guidance to our staff on how to remove them safely after reports of instances outside of our network of razor blades being attached to the back of such materials,” the spokesperson said, according to Sky.

In July, a woman in Cardiff, Wales, injured her hand when taking down an anti-mask poster with a razor blade hidden behind it.
