Petition Action

Make it an offence to wear anything covering the face in times of civil unrest..

Additional Information

Recent riots and criminal activity across the UK indicated a need to identify offenders after the event. If it was an offence to cover the face during such times and there was a fixed custodial sentence for doing so, it may act as a deterrent to those flouting the law and damaging property and livelihoods.
