As Businesses in the city centre recover from Pride the threat of a weekend of disruption dawns. An unofficial peace rally is threatening to bring the city to a standstill on 13 August.
An anti-war protest group has indicated that it will be holding an event in Brighton City Centre starting at Churchill Square Shopping Centre at 12 noon. The event has been advertised as a Peace rally followed by a march through Brighton city centre.
The group in question is taking issue over the manufacture of weapons by a Brighton-based company.
Despite the efforts of the local Police to communicate with the organisers no one has come forward to discuss their intentions on the day. Sussex Police want to facilitate any lawful protest to ensure the safety of all those taking part and for members of the public in the area.
The organisers have been asked to contact PC Sean McDonald in the Planning and Events Department at Hove Police Station on 0845 60 70 999.
This is one of the busiest summer weekends in Brighton and it is likely that there may be disruption in the City Centre particularly around the Churchill Square and Western Road areas.
The same group held a march in Brighton City Centre on 11th June 2005, which caused significant disruption to local residents, traffic and visitors.
