The English Defence League (EDL) plan to demonstrate in central London this Saturday, 20 September. Demonstrators will meet by the King Charles I statue (south of Trafalgar square) from around midday. Their intention is to march along Whitehall to Richmond Terrace where there will then be a static protest opposite Downing Street.
Approximately 300 demonstrators are expected to take part in the demonstration, which will conclude around 16.00hrs.
It is likely there will be counter protests by groups opposed to the EDL; however at this time it is not possible to anticipate those numbers.
During the demonstration there will be an increase in noise levels and footfall in and around the immediate area. Transport hubs will also be busier than usual and there will be a degree of traffic disruption whilst the march takes place.
A proportionate policing plan will be in place to deal with these events, with police liaison officers on duty throughout who will be engaging with the demonstrators.
