Subject: Proposed march/demo on Saturday 16th September 2006

Sussex Police have learnt that an anti war protest may take place in Brighton on Saturday 16th September 2006. It is a requirement of Section 11 of the Public Order Act 1986 that organisers of assemblies or processions should give notice to Police. No such notification has been received.
The purpose of such notification is to allow sufficient time for Police to plan such events safely and if such notification is not received Sussex Police will conduct investigations and if necessary seek to prosecute organisers. If such notice is not received Sussex Police may on the day need to invoke Sections 12 and 14 of the Public Order Act which prescribes routes and assembly areas.
I would therefore urge the event organiser to make contact with us so that the event can be planned with safety in mind which may negate the need for us to invoke powers available to us.
