The Museum of London is collecting placards and flags used by protesters from 26th March. Protesters are being asked to bring more memorabilia for the museum’s collection on 2nd April.

Organiser Guy Atkins said the idea was to give demonstrators the chance to influence how history remembers them.

The Museum of London’s chief curator, Dr Cathy Ross, said there would eventually be an exhibition showcasing the collection.

“The signs are quite individual, not just standard slogans,” she said.

“We think it was good that the people on the march decide what we collect.”

It was suggested to us that disabled people should also add their placards to the collection – so those of you who still hung on to their placards please try to get it to the Museum. You might want to ring up beforehand if they are still collecting.
