Human Rights Committee Report published

Parliament published the Human Rights Committees’ report into the policing of public protests ahead of planned demonstrations.

The Report welcomes the advance cooperation between the police and organisers of the TUC march and the planned involvement of human rights observers in the control room on the day of the march itself.

It also welcomes police initiatives to communicate better with protestors by using leaflets and Twitter. But concerns remain about kettling and the use of batons.
