Due to the death of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the period of national mourning that we are entering we have postponed #MillionsMissing London that was due to take place on September 13th in Parliament Square.
We received official notification today, see below:
‘You will be aware that the country has entered an official period of mourning following the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II. As a mark of respect, the Greater London Authority, (GLA), has taken the decision to cancel all functions, events and rallies at the properties under its control, namely; City Hall, Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square Gardens.’
We will not be given a date until after the official period of mourning has finished but hope to be able to hold the event later in September. We know that this is a blow to those who have already made arrangements to attend but hope that you will be able to make the new date.
You can still take part in our virtual actions to lobby the Wellcome Trust. This is just the start of our campaign and we will target other funders in the coming months.
