Planned March & Rally Saturday 19 July



This message comes from the Metropolitan Police

There is a planned national demonstration to protest about the actions of Israel in Gaza which will take place outside Downing Street on Saturday 19th July 2014.  The group will then march to the Israeli Embassy where a rally will be held. The event has been organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign UK along with Stop the War Coalition.  It is also supported by various other groups.

At approximately 13.00hrs those assembled will set off on a march to protest outside the Israeli Embassy via the following route: WHITEHALL, TRAFALGAR SQUARE, COCKSPUR STREET, PALL MALL, St. JAMES’S STREET, PICCADILLY, HYDE PARK CORNER, KNIGHTSBRIDGE, KENSINGTON ROAD, KENSINGTON GORE, and into KENSINGTON ROAD where a rally will be held opposite KENSINGTON PALACE GARDENS. The organiser anticipates approximately 15,000 people will take part.  For details of the route see the attached document.

Other Parallel Events

There are a number of events occurring that day and there will be an increased police presence across central London. An appropriate and proportionate policing plan is in place to deal with these demonstrations.

There is no current intelligence to suggest there will be any pre-planned disorder at these events. Police Liaison Officers will be on duty throughout the day linking in and engaging with the demonstrators.
