Ahead of the proposed ‘Million Mask March’ on Sunday, 5 November, and to help prevent serious disorder and disruption to Londoners, conditions have been imposed on the event under the Public Order Act.
Over recent years, this event has caused significant disruption to Londoners with increasing amounts of anti-social behaviour, violence, damage to public property and businesses. Monuments have been criminally damaged, with attempts to take over buildings in addition to harassment of the public, motorists and attacks on police officers.
A significant policing operation will be in place for the duration of the event which is designed to prevent trouble from flaring up, and to facilitate anyone who wishes to take part in peaceful protest.
The march will commence from Trafalgar Square and must stay within the area bounded by Trafalgar Square, Northumberland Avenue, Victoria Embankment, Bridge Street, Parliament Square, Parliament Street, Whitehall, St. Margaret’s Street, Abingdon Street and Millbank (up to the junction with Great Peter Street).
