Freedom to Protest vs Freedom from Disruption: do the latest legal changes strike the right balance?
The Public Order Act 2023 was passed in May 2023 to address the chaos caused by ‘extremist’ protesters, particularly targeting actions such as ‘locking-on’ to buildings or highways. However, the new bill has been criticised by human rights organisations such as Amnesty International UK for “restricting people’s fundamental rights to peaceful protest". So what do these changes mean? Do the police really have more powers to stop protests?
