Movement Against the Monarchy

The Movement Against the Monarchy, abbreviated and commonly referred to simply as MAM, is a UK-based anarchist organisation that frequently engages in protests against the British monarchy.[1][2] The most active and recognised[citation needed] of the Anti-Monarchist organizations in the United Kingdom, 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]
