Curbs on protests in policing bill breach human rights laws, say MPs and peers

Restrictions on protests in the police, crime, sentencing and courts (PCSC) bill breach human rights laws and will increase the risk of peaceful demonstrators in England and Wales being criminalised, MPs and peers have warned. They say it contains provisions that are unnecessary and disproportionate and confer unacceptably wide and vague powers to curb demonstrations on the home secretary and police. Parliament’s joint committee on human rights says clauses that allow restrictions to be imposed on protests because of the noise they generate, create powers to limit one-person demonstrations and increase penalties on people who breach conditions placed on protests should all be scrapped – Guardian
