The Extinction Rebellion protests that have severely disrupted life and activities across central London decided to stage a 'die-in' at the Natural History Museum causing disruption to normal daily operations.
A containment process was established which worked as the protesters were peaceful; but what if they weren't?
Protests are a fact of life but exhibits, themes or even sponsors can all increase or change the threat profile that is being faced.
Does your emergency plans feature protesters? When was the last time that you conducted crisis management exercises?
When we deliver training or increase the awareness of these potential threat sources it is amazing how much 'risk acceptance' organisations have.
