In United Kingdom, people are opposing the new legislation introduced in the British Parliament. This legislation is called the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, 2021. This protests is named as “Kill the Bill” protest.

If this bill becomes enforceable, then the police will gain more power to suppress the protesters. They can impose conditions like – start and stop time of protest, allows a only a particular maximum noise level and also introduces a statutory offence of public nuisance. That is, it will provide clarity on forbidden conducts such as producing smells or noise, dangerous behaviour in public (like hanging from bridges).

Further, it can imprison a person upto 10 years for non-cooperation. If Anyone refuses to follow police directions about a protest could be fined up to 2,500 pounds under the law. Former Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn said, “Stand up for the right to protest, stand up for the right to have your voice heard”.

Till now, the British Government uses Public Order Act of 1986 to supress the protests. But, as time grows, the strength of protests grows as well. So, the Public Order Act doesn’t fit this new type protests. One such example is April Uprising, for which the Government had to spend 16 million USD to control the chaos.
