British Anti-Monarchists To Protest At King Charles’ Coronation

British Anti-Monarchists To Protest At King Charles’ Coron

British anti-monarchists on Sunday said that they plan to protest during the coronation of King Charles in May.

Campaign group Republic said it had been in contact with London’s police force about its plans to hold a peaceful demonstration in Parliament Square, which is overlooked by Westminster Abbey where British monarchs are crowned.

Graham Smith, Republic’s chief executive, said; “The coronation is a celebration of hereditary power and privilege, it has no place in a modern society.

“At a cost of tens of millions of pounds, this pointless piece of theatre is a slap in the face for millions of people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.”

Buckingham Palace had said on Saturday that the coronation would be celebrated with processions, a concert at Windsor Castle, street parties, light shows and community volunteering.

King Charles, became king in September after his mother Queen Elizabeth died.

The coronation will take place on May 6.

Multiple protests and strikes are also set to hit the United Kingdom.

This is as thousands of teachers, nurses, train drivers and ambulance workers will strike in February and March over pay disputes in the UK.

Many unions have announced new strike dates as they continue to resist "unacceptable" pay offers.
