Here are some details for the March for the Alternative next Saturday from the dedicated WEBSITE:
The march will gather on Victoria Embankment and form up between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridges from 11am.
It will start moving off around noon, but because of the likely size the last marchers will not be leaving until after two, and possibly later.
People coming under their own steam from London and the South-East may therefore not want to arrive for the start as it would be better for people with long return journeys and trains to catch to be at the front of the march.
We estimate that the march will arrive in Hyde Park shortly after 1:15pm. We will therefore start the rally around 1:30.
Because we expect large numbers we estimate that people will still be arriving in the Park at 4pm – and possibly later. We will therefore keep the rally running until around 4:30pm. Of course, not everyone who arrives early will want to stay through to the end – and indeed we hope that early arrivals will move to allow those coming later a good view.
In the Park:
In addition to the stage and giant screens in the park, there will be refreshment facilities and extra toilets. (There are good public toilets in Trafalgar Square along the route too.)
Travelling from Brent:
A reminder that if you want to go to the demo with other Brent Fightback supporters, we will be meeting on the Southbound platforms of Kilburn Jubilee line and Kilburn Park Bakerloo line stations. Look for the Brent Fightback or Brent Trades Council banners - one will be on each station. Meet at 9.30am.
