Is the UK shutting down dissent? Protest in the new age of policing powers

Join Good Law Project on Wednesday 15 June at 5pm for 'Is the UK shutting down dissent? Protest in the new age of policing powers'. 


The panel for the livestream event will be:
  • Ian Browne, Good Law Project’s legal manager and host for the event
  • Roger Hallam, activist and founder of Extinction Rebellion
  • Parm Sandhu, former Met Chief Superintendent 
  • Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, author and founder of Women in Leadership
  • Tom Wainwright, a leading lawyer in the field of protest law at Garden Court Chambers. 
The Government has changed the law to make it easier for the police to restrict where and how we protest, and it’s set to do so again in the coming months. For many, freedom of assembly is essential to a healthy democracy. Just how worried should we be about the new powers the Government has given the police, and itself, to limit protest? 
Is this the end of protests? Are the new policing laws an unprecedented power grab or a necessary corrective to protect public life? When the issue is as serious as the climate crisis, is there an argument for civil disobedience? 
Our panel will answer these questions and more. 

Register for free now and we'll send you with a reminder and a link to the event before it begins.

Watch the event through our Facebook page, Twitter account or Youtube channel at 5pm on Wednesday 15 June.
