London, Aug 12 (ANI): Ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair will meet his supporters during promotion of his autobiography, but customers will not be allowed to take his photographs.

Blair is believed to have received a 4.6 million pounds as advance for his memoirs

The former premier accompanied by Scotland Yard protection officers, will visit a branch of Waterstone's in central London on September 8.

Peace activists plan to disrupt the event and have said they will try to arrest him for alleged war crimes, SKY News reports.

Blair will be there to promote his political memoir "A Journey", which will be published next month.

Strict security protocols will be in place during the visit and customers can only join the queue if they surrender their belongings to shop staff and wear a wristband.

"We will be asking people to boycott Waterstone's completely and shut the chain of shops down if this event goes ahead," said Andrew Burgin from the Stop The War coalition. (ANI)
