This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Rejected petition review terrorism act to prevent police from abusing it as with lauren southern.

a few days ago, Canadian journalist lauren southern was detained at Calais under section 7 of the counter terrorism act. this is a profoundly disturbing abuse of said powers and needs to be opposed as the tyranny that it is. i therefore call on all conscientious people to sign this petition.
