Organisers hope to bring Jeremy Corbyn to open-air event in King’s Lynn or Wisbech
Organisers hope former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will still make an appearance in our area despite two consecutive meetings being called off.
The politician was set to appear at a Stop the War event in Lynn on November 4, but this was postponed at late notice due to organisers falling ill. A re-scheduled session last Friday was then also called off.
Mr Corbyn has been due to speak about the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, joining West Norfolk members in calling for a ceasefire.
Norfolk Police has confirmed that officers were aware of the planned Stop the War meeting at Gaywood Community Centre last week, and were in contact with the organiser and venues ahead of the meetings – as is “usual in these circumstances”.
A police spokesperson said: “We regularly engage with those involved in planning public events to discuss and consider the public’s safety, try to minimise any potential disruption and so we can consider an appropriate policing plan.”
One organiser has now told the Lynn News that the group hopes to organise yet another rescheduled meeting, this time making it open-air in either Lynn or nearby Wisbech.
