Jubilee Protest 2012

The Jubilee Protest Website

Throughout the weekend of the 2012 jubilee celebrations republicans will be protesting against inherited power and privilege and calling for the abolition of the monarchy.

Our protests will take place right alongside the major jubilee events, centred around the Thames pageant on Sunday 3rd June as well as at the lighting of the jubilee beacons, the St Pauls thanksgiving service and the planned concert organised by the BBC.

Our aim is to gather thousands of people in opposition to the monarchy, to tell the world that we want change.

Be a part of that demand for change – pledge your support for the protest and sign up to get regular updates or to volunteer as a steward or organiser.

Why are we protesting?
The jubilee celebrations go to the heart of what’s wrong with the monarchy. They’re an enforced celebration of hereditary power and all the problems that spring from it. They represent everything we, as republicans, oppose.

We’re protesting because we want to send that message to the royal family, the government, the media and – most importantly – to the people of Britain. It’s a unique opportunity not just to voice our opposition to an unaccountable and anti-democratic institution, but to promote the positive republican alternative.

  2. “We have just announced that our jubilee protest on Sunday June 3 will take place on the south bank of the Thames between City Hall and Tower Bridge, in front of Potters Fields Park.

    Protesters will be in full view of the royal barge as the Queen and other royals disembark to watch the pageant pass through the historic bridge.
