The Policing Crime Sentencing and Courts Bill is currently on its way through the House of Lords. When it first arrived in parliament, the Bill included a host of measures designed to crackdown on protests and attack the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Community. The Lords voted down some of the most reactionary measures, but there’s still a fight to defeat it and defend the right to protest.
