South, Piccadilly Circus - click here for directions -
the action will finish with a ‘street party’ at 5:30pm, the location will be announced on the day.
This action will only be as effective as the people participating in them. We have not negotiated with the police and we will not be controlled. If we look after each other, stay mobile, don’t get caught in kettles and are ready to make quick decisions about what to do next we can make the most of the day
see you on the streets
