The Movement Against the Monarchy, abbreviated and commonly referred to simply as MAM, is a UK-based anarchist organisation that engages in protests against the British monarchy.[1][2] They were a central fixture in British anarchist,[citation needed] and to a lesser extent, republican,[citation needed] movements, before going into abeyance following the arrest of 41 members in the aftermath of protests against the Queen's Golden Jubilee. All but one were later released, and a successful claim for damages was made against the Metropolitan Police.[3] The police stated that the demonstrators were arrested to protect public safety, and that they said the group had not informed them of their protest route and were unwilling to co-operate with officers.[4]
