Hundreds of people are set to descend on UK streets this afternoon to protest for Alfie Evans.
More than 1,000 people have registered their interest for an event in London, which will be held to ‘show solidarity’ for the 23-month-year-old.
Dozens of others in the likes of Birmingham, Leeds and Edinburgh are also planning protests.
Earlier this morning, Alfie’s dad Tom told reporters outside Alder Hey hospital that there will be a meeting with doctors later today to discuss taking his son home.
He said: ‘We got rejected yesterday to go to Italy unfortunately. We could take it further but would that be the right thing to do, would there be more criticism?
‘So what we do today is we have a meeting with the doctors at Alder Hey and we now start asking to go home.’
In an invite for the London event, a spokesperson said that a medical helicopter, aeroplane and ambulance provided by Italian government is on standby outside Liverpool Hospital.
Everyone attending is also asked to bring a blue balloon.
Speaking about his son today, Tom added: ‘He’s been off a ventilator for three days now, there’s been no deterioration.
‘He hasn’t woke up, he’s still a little bit weak but what we ask for is to go home to sustain his life.’
He said Alfie was ‘still fighting’ and was ‘comfortable’ and ‘content’ with a stable heart rate.
Tom Evans and Kate James failed in an 11th-hour attempt to persuade judges to let them move the 23-month-old to a foreign hospital.
The couple, who are both in their early twenties and from Liverpool, maintain that life-support treatment should continue to be provided.
The parents have now lost two rounds of fights in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.
Mr Evans said the family did have ‘appeals to explore’.
He said: ‘All I ask for now is for this meeting to be a positive one and I hope to have Alfie, on the terms of mine and Alder Hey, to be home within a day or two.
‘If the meeting doesn’t go well today, well then I’ll go back to court.’
