Neighbourhoods:

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.

The police had at least 5 teams handing the leaflet out at ULU at the start of the demo.

I didn't take one.
