Protect our right to protest

The council are trying to intimidate us.

Peaceful protest is part of any modern democracy. But Sheffield City Council have recently threatened peaceful protesters with court action.

While the council were carrying out tree work on Abbeydale Park Rise, they were handing our legal threats to innocent passers-by to try and stop them from protesting. These are scenes you would see in Putin’s Russia, instead we are seeing them in our city.

The Liberal Democrats have launched a petition to demand all court action on peaceful protesters is dropped.

We, the undersigned, believe it is our democratic right to protest peacefully. We therefore call upon Sheffield City Council to drop all legal proceedings against peaceful tree protestors and we call upon the Government to intervene and stop Sheffield City Council from using these scare tactics.

Hi, will you sign our petition?
