The Criminal Justice Bill of 1994 wiped out an entire culture of people living in alternative ways. Squatting empty buildings, protesting against fox hunting, losing the right to Silence when interviewed by Police and a whole raft of bills which eroded our sense of being a free people.
Now the Government (Tories and Lib Dems) are trying to bring in by stealth a 'Lobbying Bill' which will stop anyone protesting against their policies- aimed at stopping dissent during the run up to the next election.
This has got to be overturned.
The "transparency of lobbying, non-party campaigning and trade union administration bill" will treat charities, thinktanks, blogs, community groups and activists of every hue as political parties. From tiny groups vocal on local matters to great national organisations, all risk being silenced in the year before a general election. The Guardian
