Supporters of the Human Rights charity Amnesty will unfurl five banners on Vauxhall Bridge facing the new American embassy at Battersea Nine Elms saying, “resist sexism”, “Resist Racism”, “Resist Trump”, “Resist Hate” and “Resist Cruelty.”
Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner said the force will be firm with those who break the law.
Dick said, “We take our role really seriously, on the one hand to keep safe the visiting head of state and their entourage and everybody connected with it, and of course our own royal family, and on the other hand in a liberal democracy like ours to ensure that if people wish to protest lawfully they can do so without crime, and do so safely.
“We will be pretty firm if protesters are intending to try to protest in a way which is unlawful, and very, very firm if anybody wants to do anything which might in any way endanger security.”
