Dozens of protestors gathered in Camborne on Saturday to oppose the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which will be voted on in the House of Lords on Monday. Protests against the bill have taken place across the UK.
The controversial bill would give police increased stop and search powers and allow them to ban protests considered “seriously disruptive”, including imposing noise limits. Damaging public memorials, such as statues, could result in a maximum sentence of 10 years. Further measures to criminalise trespass have been criticised as threatening Gypsy, Roma, and traveller communities.
