Kill the Bill protest for the right to peaceful protest
Jeremy Corbyn, former Labour Leader.
Home Secretary Priti Patel and the UK Government had proposed an extensive ‘Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill’ which would bring in new laws to curb peaceful protests and civil disobedience. The proposed new laws would bring in new powers for the police to arrest people for expressing dissent and new sentencing powers which could send peaceful protesters to prison for years. The House of Lords rejected many of the added amendments and most extreme parts of the proposed law and the bill was voted down a third time January 17 after huge debate and mass protesting across Britain.
