Speakers from many organisations and amongst our supporters have been invited to join us including Victoria Brittain, Andy Worthington, Yvonne Ridley, Bruce McKenzie Wandsworth Green Party; Joy Hurcombe Brighton Against Guantanamo, John Clossick Chair Wandsworth STWC, Jean Lambert MEP, Chris Nineham National Officer STWC, Kate Hudson CND, George Galloway (Respect), Jeremy Corbyn MP and many any others. We will campaign strongly and make ourselves heard as usual. Amongst those invited are the new Battersea MP Jane Ellison (Conservative), Martin Linton (Battersea Labour ex-MP) and Layla Moran (Battersea Lib Dem candidate) all from Shaker's constituency.

Given the 25th is a workday WE will need to do more than usual to mobilise our supporters available. PLEASE approach/target your contacts and encourage them to make that extra effort, use your phone & email.

We are recommending supporters bring a picnic, as timing of the State Opening is unclear (likely to go on all day) although the standard description includes the following..........

"State Opening is the main ceremonial event of the parliamentary calendar, attracting large crowds, both in person and watching on television and the internet. The Queen's procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster is escorted by the Household Cavalry. The Queen arrives at the Sovereign's Entrance at about 11.15am
