United Kingdom News Alert

Hospitality workers to protest in central London, UK, Dec. 7 to denounce COVID-19 restrictions. Localized disruptions possible.

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/7/2020, 12:01 AM until 12/7/2020, 11:59 PM (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION London

Event

Hospitality workers are planning to protest in central London Dec. 7 to denounce restrictions imposed to combat coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Participants will meet at 1045 on Parliament Square outside the Houses of Parliament. Hundreds of people could attend the gathering.

Additional police will likely deploy to monitor the action; related security measures could prompt localized disruptions. Current COVID-19 measures in the UK restrict public gatherings, and police will likely single out individuals deemed to be breaching these restrictions. Any significant violations of COVID-19 protocols could prompt police to disperse the protest; however, the event will likely proceed peacefully.

Advice

Avoid the demonstration as a routine security precaution and to mitigate associated disruptions. Heed instructions from security services and leave the area at the first sign of a confrontation. Check for disruptions and allow extra time for travel in the affected area Dec. 7.
