Joanne McCartney AM: Thank you, Mr Mayor. I was not linking the two incidents. I was referring to the incident in Wood Green High Street where we had the Kurdish parade for Newroz, which has taken place for the last few years on an annual basis and has actually taken place extremely peacefully without any issue. However, it appears that a stall promoting extreme Islamic ideas popped up in the High Street at the same time. Whether that was premeditated or not, there was certainly, I believe, a brick thrown at the parade and some abuse called, which I understand the police are investigating.
However, at the meeting last month, you were asked about police withdrawing resources from private events and public protests. It just struck me that with events like these where there may be some community tensions that the police and perhaps your officers could just take extra care that extra checks are done so that we can protect the peace.
