UK: Protesters to gather in London November 5

United Kingdom News Alert

Protesters to gather in London on November 5; avoid all demonstrations as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/5/2020, 12:00 AM until 11/6/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London

Event

The annual "Million Mask March" organized by the Anonymous group has been scheduled on Thursday, November 5, in London to denounce perceived austerity, war crimes, corrupt politicians, and increasing government encroachment on civil liberties. Participants are set to gather from 18:00 (local time) at Trafalgar Square and then march through Westminster. Social media outlets indicate that the demonstration has been planned to continue until midnight. It is unclear how well-attended the demonstration will be.

Public gatherings remain restricted in the UK amid the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. A heightened security presence is likely in the vicinity of the protest, and as new lockdown measures come into effect in England on Thursday, police will likely disperse the demonstration. Localized associated disruptions to transport are possible. 

Advice

Those in London are advised to monitor developments, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
