Greens respond to new plans to clampdown further on protests

Responding to the Home Office’s new plans to clampdown further on protests, Green Party co-leader Carla Denyer said:

“This is another worrying step towards an authoritarian state, which too many in the government seem intent on creating.

“This government is reaching the stage where it views any disagreement with its plans as practically an offence in itself.

“The right to protest is an important freedom that helps protect us from tyranny. Without these rights, the UK risks ending up with even worse governments.

“The sweeping powers of this Bill risk turning legitimate protest into crime.

“We need to see MPs from all parties speak out against these plans.”
