I work for a drug company and we get animal rights 'demonstrations' outside, which typically attract about 3 people who turn up about 2 hours after the demo has begun. They did one yesterday and went home when it started raining! Then it was announced on local radio that the guy who organised it had had a liver transplant and was taking our company's drugs as part of hisx treatment regimen!
[FONT=arial,helvetica,serif]Demonstration Today in Canary Wharf [/FONT]
We would like to inform you that a number of anti-capitalist groups have announced their intention to hold a demonstration in Canary Wharf this afternoon.
The demonstration is scheduled to take place near the main entrance to the Jubilee Line Underground Station, adjacent to Reuters Plaza, at 4:30pm. It is unclear at this stage how many people will take part in the demonstration, but large numbers could be involved. The demonstration is Halloween-themed and the organisers have indicated it will be a non-violent protest.
There will be an increased police and security presence on the Canary Wharf Estate. In addition, we will monitor this event closely and conduct additional external patrols, as a precautionary measure only.
To avoid any disruption caused by this event, we advise staff to enter the Underground Station via alternate routes through the shopping centre.
Please direct any media queries to the Corporate Communications Department.
