Petition Action

Remove anti-protest measures from the Public Order Bill

Petition Details

We want the Government to remove provisions for:

- electronic tagging of people who intend to attend demonstrations
- orders not to use the internet in certain ways
- expanded stop and search powers
- new offences for "locking on" to others, objects or buildings

Additional Information

We believe the measures proposed are another step in the creation of a police state in this country, and represent a fundamental attack on our civil liberties.

There must be no attempts to restrict the right to protest in a democratic society. We believe the police already have too many powers.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
