What to do now

Guidance on attending protests:

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: LCAPSV Advice, rights under COVID from StopWatchUK, always bring a Bustcard

  • Please only attend local protests where you can avoid public transport*
  • Wear a mask, bring hand sanitiser and practice social distancing
  • If you live with members with Respiratory, auto-immune or any life-threatening illnesses, then stay at home.
  • Isolate for 14 days after the protest as you may be a carrier.
  • Keep your distance, do not share any water or food with others
  • Wear comfortable but protective clothing as it may be warm, it makes it less noticeable when travelling and difficult for police officers to identify you
  • Do not photograph or film protesters who may look identifiable, protect fellow protesters
  • Carry cash in hand if you must
  • Leave your phone at home if possible/buy a VPN to prevent tracking/carry a brick phone
  • Try not to go alone - tell a trusted friend to check in on you if you do
  • Do not attend a protest if you are an International Student or have insecure immigration status
