Manage Threats to Public Order

Diversion

Aim to divert supporters’ attendance at far-right events. This includes raising awareness among protesters and those who are at risk of getting involved about the penal code and consequences of their actions; liaising with key influencers (e.g. social workers and teachers) to encourage them to discourage individuals from attending; and diversionary activities planned to coincide with the far-right event.

Reclaiming public spaces

Ensures that extremists have minimal impact on communities. This includes keeping demonstrations away from areas with high concentrations of ethnic minorities and migrants, community businesses declaring themselves zones where extremists are not welcome, and rapid community responses to paint over graffiti or clean streets after protests

Smart demonstration management

Ensures that demonstrations don’t inspire fear, inflame tensions or lead to violence within the community. This might involve tension monitoring, communication of the march route to the public, and real-time communications about the progress of the event as well as smart use of social media. It may also involve getting the community engaged in management of the demonstration.
