UK MPs Grill Met over March 26 Protest

A number of Parliament's joint committee on human rights are extremely worried about the dangerous tactics the police may use to confront the May 26 demonstrators.

Met Police used "kettling” tactics during students' protests, which caused a chaos across the country.

The committee asked the Met's Commander Bob Broadhurst, Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens, chief TUC steward and TUC head of campaigns Nigel Stanley to answer MPs questions.

According to MPs, the tactics the police force may use, could spread anger among peaceful demonstrators

There will be a huge demonstration in Hyde Park on March 26. Ed Miliband, Labour leader, has said he would give a speech in Hyde Park. However, he has not yet said if he would join the central London march afterward. Peter Hain, a Labour shadow cabinet member, has said he would march with the protestors.

Hundreds of public transportation vehicles will bring thousands of activists and protestors to join the demonstration.

The anti-cuts demonstration is to be held on March 26, started at 1100 GMT on the Victoria Embankment between Temple Place and Blackfriars.
