The British Cypriot community gathered outside the Turkish Embassy at London's Belgrave Square and then marched through Hyde Park Corner to Picadilly Circus and on to culminate in a "Rally for Cyprus" at Trafalgar Square where they were joined by politicians from across Britain's political spectrum in a show of solidarity against Turkey's continuing illegal military occupation of the northern part of Cyprus.

The National Federation of UK Cypriots' President, Mr Peter Droussiotis, had previously led a Federation delegation to deliver a petition to Downing Street, calling for action from Prime Minister David Cameron to address Turkey's intransigence on Cyprus. The petition stated "In this, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, we ask you to act in the interests of a member of Her Majesty's Commonwealth. As Cyprus assumes the Presidency of the EU, we ask that your Government shows solidarity and support for a fellow EU member. And as the world descends upon London for a sporting celebration of global cooperation, we ask that you use your influence on the world stage for the benefit of a close and committed historical ally of the United Kingdom." A letter of protest to the Turkish Ambassador to the UK was also delivered during the protest outside the Turkish Embassy in London
