The Metropolitan Police Authority Civil Liberties Panel is inviting members of the public to attend an open meeting at City Hall next month.
The meeting forms part of the panel’s review of the events surrounding the G20 demonstrations and follows widespread criticism and concern over policing of the demonstrations.
Victoria Borwick, MPA member and chair of the panel, said: “The open meeting on 5 November at City Hall is the perfect opportunity for Londoners to come along and voice their views”.
Borwick, who is also a member of the London Assembly, said the panel “would particularly welcome firsthand accounts from those who were actually there. We want to engage as widely as possible with individuals and groups who believe they can contribute to our examination of the events that took place on 1 and 2 April 2009. It is important that we gather as much constructive input as possible to inform our final report, which we expect to present in the New Year.”
Anyone wishing to take part is asked to supply their name, email address (or other contact details), the name of any organisation they are representing, and any special requirements for attending, together with a summary of the key points they wish to make, to firstname.lastname@example.org or by hand (to avoid postal problems) to MPA Oversight and Review, 10 Dean Farrar Street, London SW1H 0NY.
