"The UK Government is about to pass legislation which will make any behaviour perceived to potentially ‘cause nuisance or annoyance’ a criminal offence. The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill also grants local authorities, police and even private security firms sweeping powers to bar citizens from assembling lawfully in public spaces. The Bill has successfully passed through the House of Commons without issue, and is now in the latter stages of review by the House of Lords, after which it will receive Royal Assent and become Law. Those who refuse orders under the new rules will face arrest, fines and even prison time."
Scriptonite Daily THE BIRTH OF A POLICE STATE: UK POLICE TO BE GRANTED SWEEPING NEW POWERS (via thinksquad)
The name of that bill is unbelievably dystopian, as the State blatantly asserts the right to control and punish your behavior according to their standards.
Look back in history and think of a hero of yours. Do you think they would have ever been allowed to do what they did under legislation like this?
This is not progress for humanity.
