Me and my family have been in the house or garden
No it wasn't aimed at you

yes, they are making it look more crowded than it actually is. Also the danger of spreading the virus in the open air has always been very low. Add to that the higher UV index at the moment that kills the virus and it's not that unsafe.

Indoor areas have always been the major problem, so things like tube trains and buses are much more of a problem.

So, to answer the original question, no it won't have much effect

That said I would imagine large crowds of any kind will have an impact, we see the photos of overcrowded beaches and beauty spots being reported on as being a danger and breeding ground for the virus spreading and the r number to rise again so I dont see why protest crowds would be any different
the chances of getting the virus outdoors in the sun is very very small. You would need to talk to someone close for 15 minutes to raise the threat and they would need to be infected.

THe virus is spread in close contact inside places where people talk

Forget the tabloid clamour about beaches, that has little or no impact

The difference is the people who attend protests a good majority of them use masks. People who have gone to beaches donít.

Because of how water diffusion works that's not really a concern... any viral particles entering the water from an infected individual would be instantly diluted to the point of not being a realistic risk. Also it's salt water which makes it even less likely the virus could survive.

The real risk is sewage pollution; if there's untreated pollution in the water it could (in theory) carry various things. This shouldn't be a huge concern these days though - untreated sewage SHOULDN'T be getting into beach water. And if it was, you'd have more than Covid to worry about if you went swimming in it.
I smile and I say that the world is just fine,
as these ****ing parasites eat up my spine,
So I ask you once, and I ask you again;
Where do your roots start,
And where do your roots end?
