14466404 10210565661802655 1474328952 o

The sudden closure of London's most prolific clubbing venue has sparked a wave of unity across London's nightlife community and beyond. MEOKO has been working hard to unite spirits during this difficult time and has managed to set a peaceful protest in place in hopes to save and protect our culture. Having attracted over 3,000 attendees since the group was set up on Facebook at the beginning of the month, it's clear this is something that many of us are passionate about. After weeks of preparation we can now happily unveil details of the march which will take place October 8th.

The protest will begin at Hoxton Square at 1.00pm where protesters will gather, please arrive in fancy dress and bring as many props, musical instruments, placards, mega phones as you can find. We want the emphasis of this protest to be unity and positivity.  Once congregated we will leave Hoxton Square and begin the march which will take us to London Fields for around 4pm. Upon arrival at London Fields there will be a selection of guest speakers, including Alan D Miller from the NTIA, from 4.30pm with a 7pm finish.
