State Opening of Parliament Protest 2024

When 2 days to go July 17, 2024 at 9:00am 3 hrs

DOWN WITH THE CROWN

Republic is returning to London for our first protest since the Trooping the Colour ceremony. We’ll be protesting at the State Opening of Parliament on the 17th July, standing in opposition to the monarchy and the Crown, which lies at the heart of political power in the UK. Not My King. Not Any King. Down with the Crown. Abolish the Monarchy!

Pledge to be there!

Location

We’ll be on the corner of Parliament Street, outside the Parliament Gift Shop. We'll be in position to run an amazing protest - telling Charles that he isn’t our King.

Wear yellow!

Wear yellow if you can, and bring a placard! We will have placards and flags handy, so don't worry if you can't bring your own. We want to see a sea of yellow opposite parliament, making ourselves as visible as possible.

Have you pledged to protest?

It helps us to know how many people are likely to be there. You can PLEDGE to tell us you'll be outside parliament on July 17.

Pledge to be there!

Travel

There are multiple tube stations that protestors can use to get to the area on the day, although we’d advise using these ones, to avoid any road closures that might obstruct getting to our spot:
- Westminster (100yds away, 1 min walk)
- Lambeth North (0.7mi away, 15 min walk)
- Waterloo (0.8mi away, 17 min walk)

Timings

The protest officially starts at 9:00am, with Charles expected to make his appearance around 11:00am. The Republic team and volunteers will be setting up from 8:00am onwards, so, if you can, turn up from then to help get our protest underway!

Pledge to be there!

Further Info

Make sure to keep updated with our social media channels during the protest, which will give out key updates on the day. Find these on our Linktree. Also, make sure to check out www.greenandblackcross.org, which has important info available for safe protesting. We are developing a constructive dialogue with the Met police, so there shouldn't be any problems.

It's wrong in principle and it doesn't work in practice. (And no, it's not good for tourism.) But it doesn't have to be this way.

They say Britain should be proud to have the mother of parliaments, a shining beacon of democracy and an example to other nations. But there's an elephant in the room.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Highly recommended

"I read this book with an open mind and the author’s argument to do as the title suggests is very strong. I’d like to see if someone could write an equally comprehensive case for keeping the monarchy, I doubt it’s possible." (Amazon review).

OUT NOW!

We want to see the monarchy abolished and the King replaced with an elected, democratic head of state, not running the government but representing the nation independently of our politicians. An elected, effective head of state.
