The twenty three page long report manages to successfully capture the violation of the right of protesting in the UK. A violation that is being carried out by the police forces and with the eulogies of the legal frame in this country.
Amongst others the report illustrates cases of:
- police use of search powers and protesters identification
- seizure of property
- aggressive police intrusions onto the camp site and causes of sleep deprivation(form of torture?!) and,
- defaming of protesters
In order to comply with police's requests, protesters have been threatened of arrest for (amongst others):
- theft of protesters' own bank cards, phones or camp equipment
- immigration offenses for those with foreign accents
Seen not as yet another “isolated” event , the extent to which the traditional trias politica (exceutive, legislature, judiciary) – and of course the fourth form of power which is today the media - of this state actually facilitate and welcome such practices oughts to be addressed.
