Social networks are used to organize protests against the marriage of William and Kate Middleton

LONDON - While the British royal family is making unprecedented use of social networking as a way to promote the marriage of Prince William with Kate Middleton, the tools also have been useful for possible manifestations of protest in the streets of London. After Scotland Yard (the London Metropolitan Police) have prohibited an anarchist and an Islamic group to march in front of Westminster Abbey, sites like Twitter and Facebook are being used to organize protests lightning, similar to what has seen riots in the Arab World.

On Twitter, for example, the radical Islam 4UK, promises a series of appearances on the actual route of the procession, which has already aroused reactions of a rival organization, the xenophobic British Defense League. Fearing possible clashes, Scotland Yard threatens to use a device known to prevent unrest among supporters of football and preventively detain people already booked for disturbances.

Note how the dislike of Kate is grassroots rather than just superficial.
