If new information released recently is correct, it would seem that the state is quietly putting through legislation to practically ban any and all lawful assembly and protest in the UK.

The online magazine 'Trebuchet' has reported that the UK government is attempting to pass legislation which will make any behaviour perceived to potentially 'cause a nuisance or annoyance' a criminal offence.

This 'Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill' will also grant local authorities, police and even private security firms sweeping powers to bar citizens from assembling lawfully in public spaces.  Those who refuse orders under the new rules will face arrest, fines and even prison time.

This Bill, which apparently passed the committee stage of its progress through the House of Commons on Monday 15th July, could have a direct consequence on the street activities of the British National Party, such as our Hate Preachers OUT demonstration in London after the brutal murder of Lee Rigby.

Designed to replace the ASBO, the Bill introduces Injunctions to Prevent Nuisance and Annoyance (IPNAs), which have a much weaker test, applicable where on the ?balance of probabilities? a person has or might engage in behaviour ?capable of causing annoyance? to another person.

Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs), and new Dispersal Orders will soon replace Designated Public Space Orders, Dog Control Orders, Gating Orders and a host of other orders intended to keep aggressive drunken people, drug dealers and other undesirable off our streets.

Trebuchet also reports that the new Dispersal Powers mean police constables and even Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) can issue dispersal orders if they think a group of two or more persons might harass, alarm or distress others in the vicinity. Failure to comply with any element of these orders will/may result in fines of up to ?5,000 or three months in prison.

The new legislation also fails to define ?locality? ? meaning a person could be excluded from a city, a county or even a whole country! One does not have to have a broad imagination to know that these new orders will indeed quickly be used against the BNP, and other street-level Nationalist groupings.
