Protesters are planning to gather in London's Trafalgar Square on Saturday, September 26, to denounce recent restrictions announced by the government to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Protesters intend to gather from 12:00 (local time). A demonstration held in London regarding the issue on September 19 resulted in disruptions in the vicinity of Trafalgar Square after protesters erected a barricade. Minor scuffles between protesters and police also occurred after demonstrators were told to disperse or face arrest.
A heightened police presence is to be expected in the vicinity of the protest. Disruptions to transportation and business are likely during the demonstration.
Those in London are advised to monitor developments, minimize non-essential travel in the vicinity of the protest, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
