NEW ASBO LAWS POSE GRAVE THREAT TO PUBLIC FREEDOM

30 June 2013 — Banned in London

The Manifesto Club’s Banned in London map showed the worrying extent of public space regulation, with hundreds of banned zones within which ordinary rights are suspended.

The new anti-social behaviour legislation announced in the Queen’s speech makes all this look very mild. Every draconian power has been replaced with something far worse.

Read our Briefing Document on these new powers, which are so broad that they could be used to ban rough sleeping or begging. The briefing document was reported by Press AssociationDaily TelegraphLeft Foot ForwardHuffington PostDaily Express, and the Belfast Telegraph.
