‘Kill the Bill’ protestors take to the streets across England

Demonstrations have been held across England against plans to increase police powers to control protests.
Despite the Covid-19 lockdown, thousands of people marched in towns and cities in protest against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which would give police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on non-violent protests - including those deemed too noisy or a nuisance, with those convicted liable to fines or jail terms.
Throughout the day, thousands of people took part in what various police forces described as “peaceful” Kill the Bill protests in regions including London, Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool, Dorset and Bristol.
By Saturday evening, the Metropolitan Police said that “a small minority” of protestors, who were not social distancing, were still in London’s Parliament Square.
Arrests were being made after they turned down requests to leave, police said.
The Metropolitan Police later said that ten officers had been injured, “none of these are believed to be serious”, and that 26 people had been arrested for a variety of offences including assault on police and breach of the peace.
A woman was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon after a knife was recovered.

  • I don't think ether side is in the right here, the police are a bunch of asses don't get me wrong. But most are just doing there job, they don't want to be there they have no option. Plus half those protesters seemed to just be there to cause bother and rebel rather then just protest peacefully. And they where breaching lockdown rules to, meaning it's giving the virus more chance to spread and mutate. Personally I don't think we are getting any ware at this point, there seem to be pricks on both sides.

    Peter McHalePeter McHale15 days ago
    • There were actually demonstrations at the time against the covering up of the grooming gangs, just the Mainstream media didn't report on them, and those that did made it a Muslim issue, not a violence against women issue. Besides, how will you protest against such whitewashing if they take away the right to peaceful protest? This is all in your best interests, despite your Whataboutism

    • @Ben That's an example of MPs who supported a protest. If the MPs were already trying to to get women suffrage, then why didn't it get through? this just proves how inefficient and ineffective MPs are. I would argue that women suffrage movements did anything but postpone universal suffrage; it's known that the government were scared of what havoc would happen if the women were forced out of their jobs and newfound freedom in WW1. The suffragettes even caused other protests which worked, like temperance leagues and what lead to the prohibition in America (Even if the prohibition itself was a failure, it's an example of protest that forced a change) which is especially impressive considering how much of America's economy was the alcohol industry. Also, the removal of the Bristol statue wasn't by MPs, that was rioters who damaged it to the point where it was decided not to replace the statue.

      Hidden TreasureHidden Treasure15 days ago
    • @Hidden Treasure There were calls by MPs for the right to vote to be given to all well before the suffragist and suffragette movements. I would argue the latter actually postponed equal voting by several years. The right to vote in early 20th century was for most men and all women, not just women. MPs were already arguing for the change well before these movements. I thought of an example, possibly the removal of the Bristol statue last year. Although with BLM as a whole there were institutional changes being argued for and put in place prior to the protests and riots.

      BenBen15 days ago
    • @Ben How about the women's suffrage movements in the early 20th century? Most of the western world flipped from patriarchal societies to egalitarian ones. it was hard work and took a long time, it these were mostly peaceful protests. Especially in Britain where suffrage marches were the driving force that lead the government to grant Women the right to vote, even if it did take decades for true equality. i'm also certain that most women wanted gender equality. Can you give an example of when people lobbying MPs actually did anything? I selected what is possibly the actual largest protest movement and certainly one of the longests since women have been fighting for equality practically since the first cities appeared

      Hidden TreasureHidden Treasure15 days ago
    • @Hidden Treasure I selected the most recent protest before this current one and the largest protest on record. Can you point to a protest that led to change -> the protest itself being the cause of the change?

    • @John Wayne but as we live in a civilised society, violence is not an option for punishment by the government. I am sorry to hear that you felt the need to take the law into your own hands, obviously in self defence it is perfectly legal provided you can show you used reasonable force. We are digressing though from the subject of the bill. Personally I see the bill as a positive move, given the change in how we can now communicate and what with social media, protesters are becoming more disruptive. This goes against peoples rights to freely go about their business, so by all means protest, but do it peacefully and respectfully. Cheers 👍

  • Personally I would have the Army come in and form a perimeter. Then secure the area so the Police could move in and fine the whole lot of them. Fair enough that they don't agree with the proposed new law, but do something about it legitimately such as lobbying your MP, form a propper protest group and take your case through the correct channels just as our laws are, but, what is going on here is pretty much plain old rioting and pure selfish behaviour right in the middle of a global pandemic. Beleive in the pandemic or not no Government is spreading this virus, People are spreading it through irresponsible actions such as this. If they don't like whats going on then fair enough, but, they should not envolve innocent people that want nothing to do with it. The deniers of this horrible situation are usually ignorant people that do not understand viral transmission and the cause and effect scenario.

    • @Jennifer Hughes Soldiers on the streets ayy? Cuz that doesn't escalate to profound violence now does it. There's a big chapter in recent British history dubbed "The Troubles" and it provides us with many conclusions about why It's not always wise to hold civilians in a position whereby they cannot escape under threat of armed men. I can assure you. Soldiers will do this country do good, unless you're looking to escalate tensions.

    • @Jennifer Hughes I have read you whole comment, this was a completely legal protest, you know how inefficient the government and bureaucracy is with this kind of thing. Lobbying isn't going to do anything, my local MP always lobbies for the opposite of what we request, these options of going through regional governance don't work because there's too many middle men and the parliament likley won't even read what your county lobbies for. Protesting is in no way selfish and it was nowhere near a riot unless you are talking about what happened in Bristol, we are pleading with our own people who are meant to take care of us not to make us a police state

    • @Hidden Treasure young working people are taxed on everything they do, to pay for current pensions (including the generous, secured pensions of NHS nurses) and healthcare, but they rarely use healthcare themselves and/or can take steps in their life to avoid needing it, e.g healthier lifestyle, if they want to avoid healthcare costs. The healthcare system has become the avoidance of natural (normal) death system, and that's probably one of the reasons it's so expensive.

    • @Hidden Treasure BLM and you are insincere. Here's the proof. You all only care (enough to protest and riot) about the killing of black people when whites, or agents of the "white" state (cops) do it. In the western world, black-on-black killings or other black-on-black violent victimization absolutely DWARF those committed by the western-world states, but the people who supposedly care about black lives the most are oblivious to it. The BBC recently reported that anti-black police brutality in just the Rio De Janiro region of Brazil was much more common than that of the entire USA. Does UK BLM have a problem with Brazilian anti-black police brutality like it does with US anti-black police brutality? Obviously not. No way near. WHY? BLM is anti-western-state, nothing more. "Black lives" is clearly just a pretext to disrupt the western state.

Follows some of them into their personal lives too looking at the news (that copper that flashed a lady in McDonalds - no action then is the main suspect in a murder of a different lady plus another article on a male officer who raped and abused two junior femal officers yet is still serving - no disciplinary or investigation until now!) yet they get away with it. Just watch Crimebodge to see the overzealous use of force and powers. Those facts, coupled with this propsed bill and the recent overstepping of the mark during covid - this like 5 miles not being considered local and the policing of supermarket aisles where the easter eggs were (previous lockdown - eggs considered non-essential despite being in shops allowed to be open) means public trust is ebbing away fast and that will mean a harder job for them going forward. We aren't that far off Myanmar these days it seems. What happened to policing by consent?

    • @Leo We can say that rioters are not part of the peaceful protestors because they are not helping their agenda. There is no cherry picking in terms of social justice because that's a very broad range of issues. And I do take notice that you brand us as social justice warriors to try and attach connotations to us. We aren't forcing reedom against anyone, unless you think freedom means that the government should be able to do whatever it wants. Everyone is following the law, there is no law that says that people cannot protest. The government is trying to make one however, hence why we are protesting against it. "They hit first" is a perfect reason to do something. If that reasoning is not allowed, then there's no such thing as self-defence, both are arrested for assault. I've already said that lobbying MPs will never work

    • @Hidden Treasure in all honesty people could simply say out loud or in their official statements that the people that break or destroy cars or shop fronts and walls etc are not part of the group. You cannot cherry pick when you decide to care for social justice and when not. It is everyone's duty to practice and demonstrate peacefully. Unless you want anarchy. We are millions of people that can go forward by peaceful coexisting using the law. When one is forcing their freedom against that of another, when what one practices or believes takes away the peace or safety or freedom of people around them its no longer democracy. When a group wants to force their authority or rights, we are no longer in democratic realms. The idea is to use and practice ones rights and not abuse them or abuse that of others. I hope this is clear now. And the story 'he started first' is not a good excuse to justify primitive behaviour and crime. You can also vote and write to your MPs.There should be no excuse for violence in the UK of 2021.

    • @Leo There is no fascism within freedom of the individual; if you think there is, you likley don't even know what fascism is as individualism is almost the exact opposite. Peaceful protesters DO extradite the people causing criminal activity, and it's not even the protestor's job to purge their ranks. the police exists to single out and catch the people who are actually breaking the law, not containing the peaceful protestors and branding them all as criminals because some outsiders wanted some fun. If it's our job as the protestor to find criminals, then why do we even have the police?

    • I agree with most comments on the oppressive views of the government but equally we have to question the fascism of the 'freedom' of the individual to go above the law and against others. It is also despicable that peaceful protestors do not call out on the criminal activities that fester within their groups. You can't simply say it wasn't me! One has the duty to stamp out the 'parasites' that use their cause/group as an excuse for spiteful crime! Enough is enough!

    • You can't let the governments poor handling of this pandemic allow them free reign to also demolish our rights. Just no. Some risks are greater than others. Besides, Johnson maintains schools are safe. That is thousands of people inside the same building up and down the country, then going home to mix. These protests are hundreds of people outside. We know outside is a lot safer than inside - so if the gov says schools are safe then these protests are really safe. They can't have it both ways.

      Masked AvengerMasked Avenger15 days ago
    • @Masked Avenger That's entirely different. We already have laws against protests that are not socially distanced, the new bill will allow police to take action against peaceful protests even if the protestors did nothing wrong. It's issues like this that caused The Americans to succeed and it's painfully obvious that the bill isn't going to be used to figure out how to handle the current situation; they only have these measures for the inevitable protests about the piss poor handling of brexit when quality of life in the UK begins to fall. You can't compare this to WW2 because that was a WAR, our sovereignty and freedom was already at stake, Covid does not threaten to compromise our freedoms unless you consider social distancing an infringement, which I believe you do not considering your stance.

      Hidden TreasureHidden Treasure15 days ago
    • @Masked Avenger Agreed. The Government are not spreading this, WE are. And yes, if they just ignorred it then where would we be? They had to do something because we clearly could not be entrusted with our own safety let alone that of others. If anything I feel they acted far too slowly compared to other countries that had much lower mortality rates than us. But I suppose the stupid people will just say they killed off the people just to make it more convincing. And the really "challenged" people are still comparring this to the seasonal flu!

    • Stop being a melodramatic drama queen ,the government have only introduced a few temporary measures while they suss out the best way to suss out the situation & find a workable solution .They had temporary measures during WW2 & they were not permanent .If the government did nothing you would soon be complaining about that .

    • We would be encouraged to fight harder. Silencing protests is the first step to totalitarianism. You might disregard this as a slippery slope, but every day we fall the closer to repeating history. Just look at how Nazi Germany formed: they started with the small things, giving more legislative power to Hitler and the nazi party. Then it was banning political parties, anti semitic laws, giving police and the Gestapo the authority to do whatever they need. The Americans showed us what standing up for freedom meant in the 18th century, freedom and democracy will prevail

    • @Jennifer Hughes I agree with you 100% The all moan & complain about the U.K. but they don’t want to try their luck elsewhere .,If the U.K. was so bad & lacking in rights ,people wouldn’t be going out their way to come here .If these protesters tried any of there capers in real police state , they would be eating rifle buts & chewing the metal floor of the Juntas pick up trucks on the way to be tortured .

Only 3,500 in hosp., down from 39,000. Covid is gone until next flu season! So why are we still in lockdown??? Why is the MSM not telling you about this?

  • Sorry to say but day by day the police are Loosing the respect they desperately need to sustain law and order. People have a Right to protest if they feel aggrieved and shouldn’t have to ask permission off anyone. We ALL see the Two Tier system in this country and around the globe. The government and their propaganda machine(MSM) Really take the people for fools. They really think WE can’t see what’s happening in our own back yard. Divide and conquer is their aim. Create Fear and pretend to have the solution. Works every time.
