MET Police Right to Protest leaflet #dayx5Tagged as: co11 co11metpolice containment cuts fit kettle law police repression right_to_protest solidarity workers_struggles
For the second time now CO11 Met POlice are handing out leaflets at a demonstration describing the agreed route - only this time it comes with a nice placard graphic saying Right to Protest! Is this a joke?
Whilst it certainly is right to protest at the moment, the police are not there to uphold your rights, but to enforce the political will of the government.
If you really want to know your rights when it comes to protesting check out Green and Black Cross legal advice.
