Climate warning

Fears over right to protest after woman with sign at climate trial prosecuted

Civil liberty campaigners have warned that the prosecution of a woman for holding up a placard about the rights of jurors outside a court is part of the government’s increasing attacks on the right to protest. Liberty said the decision to prosecute Trudi Warner, 68, for contempt of court for sitting outside a London trial holding up a sign was “concerning”. Sam Grant, advocacy director of Liberty, called on ministers to reverse the restrictions on protest which are contained in recent legislation – in the Policing Act and Public order Act – and commit to protecting the right to protest.

          Trouncing down peoples right to protest and persecuting them is very medieval

            Why prosecution? She should be treated well, every person's lives matter

              Very sad. That's backwardness. The rights of activists matters too.

                I believe that climate change protestors and advocates should be protected and given space to air their views ... this is a shame on the UK's authorities
