Anti-monarchy group claims north London council’s refusal to let it hold a street party is politically motivated

A street party for republicans wishing not to celebrate the royal wedding has been banned by a north London council.
The anti-monarchy pressure group Republic has complained that its application to close a street in Covent Garden for its party has been turned down by Camden council. The council claims that it told the group to provide a management plan and consult local residents and it failed to do so.
The decision left Republic vowing to take court action. Its executive officer Graham Smith complained: “This is a disgraceful attack on the rights of republicans to make their voice heard and to hold a fun and peaceful event. Camden council is allowing a few vocal residents and businesses to veto any event they do not support … (It) is seeking to silence and marginalise us without any legitimate reason.
“We can only assume this is a politically motivated ban and we will challenge it all the way.”
