STATEMENT: Oxford protests
Statement from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, following peaceful protests in Oxford.
“I was pleased to see that the Oxford protests on Tuesday evening (9/6) passed off peacefully. Protests that do not involve violence are far more effective in getting their message over than those dominated by violent behaviour, which merely alienates the vast majority of the public.
Thank you to both the organisers of the protest and to the police officers who monitored the protest and who ensured that it went without incident."
