Green Christian defends the right to protest

Green Christian is proud to be among the 74 organisations who signed Liberty’s Public Order Bill joint briefing for the bill’s Report Stage in the House of Lords.

The briefing urges parliamentarians to defend protest rights and support amendments to mitigate the Public Order Bill’s worst effects. The briefing concludes as follows:

At Second Reading, Conservative peer Viscount Hailsham urged peers to remember that “There is always a danger… that when seeking to address issues of public order Governments will go too far. Powers once given are hard to withdraw.” The Public Order Bill is an unprecedented attack on the right to protest, both in the breadth, scope, and severity of its measures. To safeguard our cherished civil liberties, we urge peers to oppose the Public Order Bill and vote for amendments that will mitigate its worst effects.
