United Kingdom Alerte de sécurité

Islamic Human Rights Commission plans Al-Quds Day rally in London on June 2; heightened security presence and counter-demonstration expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 29/5/2019, 12h00 until 2/6/2019, 11h59 (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London

Event

The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is planning to hold annual Al-Quds Day events in London on Sunday, June 2. A rally is scheduled to start at 15:00 (local time) outside of the Home Office on 2 Marsham Street. IHRC leaders have warned supporters that flying the Hezbollah flag at the event may result in arrest since the UK government designated the group as a terrorist organization in February 2019. Counter-demonstrations are also expected to be held around the event. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area. Clashes between IHRC supporters and counter-protesters cannot be ruled out.

Context

Al-Quds Day was initiated by Iran in 1979 in opposition to Israel’s Jerusalem Day. Iran sponsors Al-Quds Day rallies and protests in both Muslim-majority and non-Muslim-majority countries. It falls every year on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

Advice

Individuals in London are advised to keep abreast of the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate heightened security measures, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
