Seems to indicate that their plan is to get 
Devonshire Green designated as a protest area as was done
in Derby, details here:


And I think that this kind of restriction is is a totally
unacceptable infringement on the right to protest and that
if enough people turn up it's not going to be so easy for
it to be enforced... The police would piss people off less
if they did allow a march...

On the other hand, if the weather is nice, with some sound
systems and food I guess being stuck on Devonshire Green
wouldn't be too bad...
