Finchley and Golders Green MP, Mike Freer, has welcomed the actions taken by the Metropolitan Police to move the planned anti-Semitic demonstration to Westminster. The protest will now take place in Central London on July 4th after it was decided that a Golders Green location would present a risk to the safety of people in the area.
Mike comments “I welcome the action taken by the Police to move the demonstration well out of harm’s way. Golders Green was obviously chosen as the original location as the protestors planned to incite racial hatred. We do have freedom of speech in this country but the message is clear - anti-Semitism has no place on our streets.
I will continue to work with the Metropolitan Police, the Prime Minister and Home Secretary as the safety of local people is of paramount importance.”
