Re: National March and Rally -

Sat 4th November 2017

Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to inform you of a National March and Rally being planned by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and affiliated organisations scheduled to be held on Saturday 4th November 2017. The March is due to form up at midday on Saturday 4th November 2017 in Grosvenor Square W1K 6LF. It is anticipated between ten and twenty thousand people may be in attendance. There will be stewards arranged by the organisers to manage this event. Around 1pm the march is scheduled to set off along the following route :

North Audley StOxford St New Bond StreetClifford StreetCork Street Burlington GardensOld Bond StreetPiccadillyRegent Street Pall Mall Cockspur St Whitehall Parliament Square The march is due to arrive at Parliament Square around 2-30pm. A rally with speakers will then be held. The event is due to finish at 4-30pm. The Metropolitan Police has put an appropriate policing and security plan around the event and my role is to ensure that the impact on the local community is kept to a minimum. There are likely to be road closures with Grosvenor Square to facilitate the form up of the march; closures along the route and also around Parliament Square to allow demonstrators to gather safely at the rally. Road closures will result in traffic congestion around this localised area. Police are working with Transport for London to keep any delays and disruption to a minimum. There will be an increased visible police presence during this event. In the meantime if there is anything I can do to assist then please do contact me either by telephone or email. Sincerely yours,

Stephen Manger Metropolitan Police C/Inspector - Engagement
