Alert[edit | edit source]

The banned overnight vigil for Sarah Everard, who was allegedly murdered by an off duty Met policeman on Clapham Common, was violently crushed by the Met Police.

It was abandoned by the original organizers due to Covid-19 restrictions and Met Police getting touchy abut the murder case. Reclaim These Streets held a theoretically socially distanced alternative rally also on Clapham Common. Anti-Covid-19 laws were to be used as an excuse to ban and crush it.

The first police made initial requests for the vigil to disperse, later police orders for the get off the band stand were ignored and then some placards were thrown at police and so action to end the vigil was taken by the police. 4 were arrested and several wounded in the ensuing fracas. The Met Police's Chief Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said the vigil was illegal and should have not occered.

Other smaller rallies hit the streets in Parliament Squair (UK) and New Scotland Yard. They were non violent in nature and police response.

Liberty UK, the PM, The Home Sectary, Leader of the Opposition, Craig Mackinlay, MP for Thanet South, Tom Tugendhat, MP for Tonbridge, Edenbridge and Malling and Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, all said they thought the apparent police riot was excessive and repressive in nature. Kate Middleton made an unannounced tribute to Sarah Everard on Clapham Common during the day.

Sarah Eavard was a 33 year old London marketing executive. She had gone missing shortly after leaving her friend’s flat in Clapham for a short walk at about 9.00pm on the 3rd March. Her abandoned and abused body was later found in some Kent woodland.

Update[edit | edit source]

The civil liberties group, Liberty UK, and the PM both express thire concerns over the incident the next day. The Met Police's Chief Commissioner also said it was a difficult situation for the police on the ground to handle at the time.
