Protect our right to protest
8th December 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Government have tabled amendments after the Policing & Crime Bill has already been debated. These amendments have been called 'the biggest truncations of our freedoms in living memory' by George Monbiot.
The Bill will have its third reading in the House of Lords this Wednesday, 8 December, in the late afternoon. 'Kill the Bill' protests are planned outside Westminster from 5-7pm, as well as in other places.
If you want to protest for our right to protest, come to Bonn Square in Oxford any time between 5 and 7pm, for a peaceful and socially distanced vigil. Bring a mask if possible; also a light and placard if you can. And perhaps a flask with a hot drink!
