PRESS RELEASE – UK: IHRC Calls on Metropolitan Police Commissioner to help with Al Quds Day
IHRC has written a letter to Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick to request further help in protecting the Al Quds Day march set to take place on Sunday, 10 June.
This year’s counter-demonstration against Al Quds Day will include fascist groups like Chelsea Headhunters – a neo-nazi outfit with a history of violence. Some will be attending the counter demos while others will be circling our event looking to start fights against those they perceive to be Muslims.
In light of this IHRC has written to Commissioner Dick to ask what plans are in place to protect attendees from these violent groups and what measures will be taken by the Metropolitan Police to protect members of the public as well as the attendees of the march.
For more information please call +447958607475 or +447958522196
