Petition Do not pass the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill

This proposed legislation seeks to permanently limit civil liberties. It will severely restrain the right of the public to protest while expanding police powers to take action against members of the GRT & Black communities disproportionately affected by new trespass laws and stop and search tactics.

More details

The government have already used the pandemic to crack down on civil liberties and police misuse of power has seen hundreds of prosecutions under the Coronavirus Act thrown out. They cannot be allowed to make such misused legislation permanent, resulting in further miscarriages of justice, constraints on the rights of citizens and time wasting in our already stretched criminal justice system.
