Kill the bill on policing
The bill has been dubbed “The Police Crackdown” bill and an all-out assault on the right to protest. Many critics see the banning of the vigil and the £10,000 fine for of a nurse who organised a protest against the cut in their wages to be a deliberate decision to criminalise protest and control free expression, dissent and the right to protest under cover of the lockdown regulations. The expectation is the government will then make the emergency measures on protest permanent through legislation.
