A set of photographs and notes illustrating the progress of more laws on aggravated trespass that are coming down the pipe.
Have been crying about this since this new review was announced. So many times in the past, I have tried to point out to people that they do mean YOU. So many people always seem to think in these developments, that the law is pointing at someone else. They were wrong then and they are wrong now ……
In November 2019, the Home Secretary Priti Patel announced a review of the law to extend the Public Order Act 1986 and the Criminal Justice Act 1994 in dealing with Police Powers to Tackle Unauthorised Encampments. This review has concluded in March 2020. Those that even knew that this was happening think that she just means gypsy travellers at the side of the road or on private land. Hence mostly only those folks and their representatives took the trouble to respond and say all this strengthening of the law is a bad idea. I say that when this finally comes out as a bill, it will include a shed-load of further trouble for a whole load of different people engaged in such a variety of activities. Aggravated trespass, protest, union activities, festivals, parties, assemblies of a variety of sorts. Even the ramblers are worried it might restrict access to the countryside. [I think that this does show such a wide variety of people are likely to be affected]. Those that bring vehicles and equipment on land would then not just have them confiscated and returned a bit later … but destroyed.
