Last year, then-Home Secretary Suella Braverman signed off shocking anti-protest laws she had no power to create. Restrictions already rejected by Parliament.

She changed the definition of ‘serious disruption’ to ‘more than minor’ – giving police almost unlimited powers to shut down protests.

This change had already been rejected by Parliament when the Government tried to insert it into the Public Order Act - but they then changed the law by the back door.

This is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unacceptable.

Liberty's lawyers are taking the Home Secretary to court to scrap it.

Our Parliamentary democracy exists to make sure a government can’t just do whatever it wants.

We stand against this Government power grab, and support Liberty's legal action against their undemocratic anti-protest law.
