Petition Remove anti-protest measures from the Public Order Bill
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
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.
