I have great concern about the new Policing Bill currently going through parliament. It includes a power to lock people up for 10 years if they ‘seriously annoy’ someone else. The problem is that any protest will seriously annoy someone. That is what protest is all about. Look at what happened when a recent protest about violence to women ‘seriously annoyed’ the police! We have a right to protest about things we feel strongly about. I urge all MPs not to allow this new Policing Bill to get through.
