Police waive permit for SlutWalk event at Speakers' Corner

The police are letting SlutWalk, an anti-sexual violence event, be held on Sunday at Speakers' Corner without a permit. The decision came after its organisers explained the role of foreigners at the event. Initially, the police had assessed that SlutWalk needed a permit because it was possible that foreigners would take part in it, 'as the organisers had said that foreigners would not be excluded', said a spokesman for the Ministry of Home Affairs, which oversees the police. 'We have since received the organisers' appeal where they explained that foreigners would be present only as bystanders, and there will be no foreigners speaking or demonstrating at the event.
