In March 2021, a collective outcry amongst environmentalists and human rights advocates echoed across the country after the UK government published its proposed Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts (PCSC) bill. The bill gives police extraordinary powers to crack down on the freedom to protest, criminalises Gypsy and Traveller communities’ way of life and threatens foreign nationals’ residency status.

The bill is currently with the House of Lords after passing through the Commons. Protest-related clauses are to be debated on 10th January.
