Jubilee Protest This Weekend


Sick of the treacle of Royalist fealty that has spread across Britain in recent weeks? You're not alone. Polls suggest that up to a quarter of the British population thinks the country would be better off without a monarch, a statistic not reflected in the overwhelmingly positive media coverage. Thankfully, there's a way to register your disapproval of the institution this weekend.

Anti-monarchy group Republic are hosting a Jubilee Protest on Sunday, 3 June near the Scoop, the sunken amphitheatre beside City Hall, from 12pm to 5pm. Timed to coincide with the Thames pageant, the protest will include speeches, placard-waving and general pro-republican merriment. Speakers include Joan Smith, Peter Tatchell and Owen Jones. The group will later decamp to the Jersualem Tavern in Farringdon — tickets are available here.
