A planned anti-Semitic demonstration set to take place in Golders Green on Saturday has been moved to Westminster by police to keep Jewish residents safe.

Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer announced today that the Metropolitan Police had made the decision to re-locate the planned demonstration.

He said: “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 protesters 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.”
