My question to the Home Secretary on the right to Peaceful assembly, following the police actions during the Clapham Commons vigil for Sarah Everald.
I asked the Home Secretary the following:
Peaceful assembly must be an absolute right in this country and the actions of the police on Saturday were deeply troubling. I would like to highlight the use of kettling in particular.
Many disabled people and disabled people’s organisations have long raised concerns about the use of this controversial crowd-control tactic, which in the past has been used for up to ten hours, due to the potential health implications.
What does the Home Secretary have to say to the many disabled people who fear this disproportionate policy?
