The front had planned to march from Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to the Chater Road pedestrian precinct in Central. But police have only issued a letter of no objection for a rally within Victoria Park.
The front’s vice-convenor, Bonnie Leung, said the police decision could have implications for safety.
“It would create chaos and even danger of a stampede so this decision is not only unreasonable but also dangerous for public safety,” she said.
Leung said the Civil Human Rights Front would appeal.
