Part 3 of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021 includes broad powers for the police to curtail rights to peaceful protest. This includes greater powers to restrict protests and assemblies, tougher sentences for those charged, and even limitations on one-person acts of peaceful protest.

On the evening of 13 March 2021, police brutality at the vigil for Sarah Everard made it clear that the police cannot be trusted with the powers that they do have - let alone the wider, poorly-defined ones which the Bill proposes. These powers are unnecessary, and will inspire no trust, nor give any comfort, to those the police claim to serve and protect. 

In light of these shameful events, we demand that Part 3 of the Bill be scrapped in its entirety.
