A protest denouncing anti-Semitism is slated to take place in Manchester on Sunday, September 16. Thousands of activists are expected to participate in a rally at Cathedral Gardens from 12:00 (local time) to 14:00. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated near the protest site.
Some Jewish activists supporting the protest have claimed that the rise of far-right and far-left politics in the UK, compounded by the effects of social media, has led to a recent uptick in anti-Semitism in the country.
Individuals in Manchester are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
