In the UK by law you must tell the police in writing 6 days before a public march if you’re the organiser.
The Public Order Act 1986 defines a march or moving protest as a ‘procession’ and a static gathering as an ‘assembly’. The difference is important because the police have far more powers to control a procession than an assembly.
