Banned in London: Freedom under threat
26 September 2012 — The Manifesto Club
ONLINE MAP – FREEDOMS LOST IN HALF OF LONDON’S PUBLIC SPACES
You are in danger of unwittingly committing an offence if you stray into one of 435 special zones in London. The boundaries of these zones are often unmarked and within them many everyday activities are either banned or restricted.
A new Manifesto Club online Google map, Banned in London, reveals the 435 special zones that now cover half the area of the UK capital.
In these areas, people can be fined or prosecuted for activities that would not otherwise be an offence – including leafleting, protesting, dog walking, gathering in groups, and drinking in public.
