G20 protests in Newham

Protests against the G20 (Group of Twenty Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors) will be happening across the city of London (April 1st) and in Newham on Thursday 2nd April around the Excel Centre in Canning Town.

Areas in Newham will be subject to heightened policing over this period affecting both protestors and residents.
