From the Intro: ‘This booklet is intended to provide advice to activists in dealing with some of the more common pieces of law, which you are likely to encounter during the course of protests. It does not deal with every possible law you might encounter but instead focuses mainly on police powers to control public order and how these can be challenged.
This is the fourth edition we have made of this guide and takes in to account the relevant changes to the law under the provisions of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 and the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003. These give substantially new powers to the police in relation to public order law and to police powers of arrest, detention and bail as well as new powers to take fingerprints and DNA.
This edition takes account of recent rulings in the High Court on the application of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 and police powers to detain for breach of the peace. It now includes a briefing on police powers under the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1992, as this legislation is still used against activists. Also included are notes on new powers and laws now being used including civil injunctions, anti-social behaviour orders and penalty notices.
