Since the start of April, some 300 people have been arrested and detained in just three police operations. The vast majority of these were rounded up in two of these operations, both focusing on a supposed threat to “public order”.
Maintaining public order is now a pseudonym for the criminalising of political dissent.
Even before the G20 summit of world leaders began in London, five people were arrested in Plymouth under the Terrorism Act, reportedly accused of possessing “material relating to political ideology”.
All were released without charge, but the fact that political activism is considered a criminal offence in 21st century Britain was subsequently writ large on the streets of the capital.

Its going to take a general strike and never ending protest to set things right all over the place. Why aren't enough people noticing and taking their voices to the streets as it is. Just a few decades ago this would have been met with opposition. We are enablers unless we stop this now. And the codex is around the corner.

They fear us, for without us they are nothing. If we unite and just say no to them then what are going to do? Arrest us all?
