Procession of Mourning – PCSC Bill Protest
December 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
DEATH OF PROTEST = DEATH OF DEMOCRACY
Wednesday 8th 5pm, we will do a ‘Procession of Mourning’ on the day the Lords begins to vote on the authoritarian Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.
The procession will assemble at the Brian Clough statue in Market Square.
Come dressed in black, bring a jar with a tea-light.
We will invite activist groups from across Nottingham to join us in this sombre, quiet, but dignified and defiant event.
The PCSC Bill is a sinister move towards an authoritarian police state where even small acts of protest could invite long jail sentences, heavy fines and control orders restricting the lives of citizens identified as protestors; this is the stuff of dystopian nightmares and must be stopped.

So many of the rights and privileges we have today were won through protest and there is so much more to be done. We must be able to protest as we work towards a better future.
Stand up for democracy on Wednesday evening!
