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.

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!
