Police Actions - Authoritarian Policy
A pattern based on the protections afforded to statues over protesting citizens, usually to generate media talking points that deflect away from the actual valid reasons for the protest.
Eleven years of Conservative Government has been an ongoing, slow slide into authoritarianism. We are at the point where marginalised groups asking for safety and equality have been met with the criminalisation of protest, migrants fleeing persecution with the theatrical spats with our trading partner nations, disproportionately excessive deaths during a pandemic with more Union Jacks on council buildings and statues can expect more from the criminal justice system than victims of sexual violence.
Solidarity with all those who protest against the erosion of democracy and protest for our basic human rights.
