Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill — After Clause 54 — Accountability of public authorities: duties on police workforce — 28 Feb 2022 at 23:30

“modest reset of the scales”
“having their human right to protest against it removed”.
“serious disruption to the activities of an organisation which are carried on in the vicinity of the procession”,
“relevant impact on persons in the vicinity”.
“unfettered discretion to impose any condition they see fit including, for example, restrictions on the words or slogans that can be expressed on placards.”
“‘who does that b**** think she is’, ‘can’t we lock them and put them in a cell’, ‘what do those f****** want’”.
“Protests, by their very nature, are noisy. Noise is also a crucial means of expressing collective solidarity or grief and, quite literally, making voices heard by those in power.”
“Creating noise at a protest is quite literally a part of people making their voices heard.”
“this new trigger, which is noise, is an absolute affront to the right to protest. This noise trigger should not exist for the purposes of imposing any conditions on assemblies and processions. It is essentially an existential threat to the right to protest.”
