Defend Civil Liberties – Stop the Criminalisation of Protest
The Metropolitan Police recently produced a pamphlet associated with the Prevent initiative on terror threats which suggested that Stop the War, CND and a range of other campaigning organisations posed a terror threat.
The pamphlet was distributed widely amongst staff at the frontline of our public services. This is the most blatant case in a growing trend towards the criminalisation of protest and the suppression of debate of a whole range of vitally important issues in our society including matters of war and peace.
This Thursday, campaigners from some of the named groups including Stop the War’s Lindsey German will be joining the Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, National Education Union Joint General Secretary Kevin Courtney, the rapper Lowkey, Ragad Al-Tikriti from the Muslim Association of Britain and Jamie Potter, Joint Head of Bindmans’ Public Law and Human Rights team, to discuss the issues and how best to push back against attacks on our civil liberties.
Please join us and be part of this crucial campaign…
