Ring of steel is thrown around Oscars after pro-Palestinian protesters target award shows
95th Oscars which take place on Sunday, after pro-Palestine demonstrators targeted other red carpet events.The area around the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles has been blocked off with chainlink fencing as part of early preparations which will eventually involve thousands of law enforcement and security personnel.Police and organizers will want to avoid a repeat of the Grammy Awards – when arrivals at LA’s Crypto.com Arena were brought to a halt by pro-Palestinian supporters blocking traffic – by using thge security fence as in previous years.The protestors gleefully shared footage online with the hashtag #ShutItDown4Palestine. At the event itself, Annie Lennox called for a ceasefire during her tribute to Sinéad O’Connor.The Post is told the Academy’s goal on Sunday is to support and celebrate artists and avoid politics and the political landscape.The Oscars security measures use long-standing protocols designed to prevent protesters attempting to interrupt the Sunday night show.An interruption would give protesters a platform among as many as 20 million Americans watching live, millions more around the world and a much larger social media audience.Sources at the Academy Awards said that the safety and security of attendees is paramount, adding that the organization would not tolerate any behavior that actively endangers, discriminates or causes bodily harm to attendees or members of its global film community.Anti-Israel demonstrators have increasingly targeted high-profile events.
