What are Byelaws?
Story here at Sturdyblog:
“No doubt Boris Johnson is thinking of the upcoming Olympics and what an embarrassment it would be to have poor people protesting near tourists. The byelaws make it an offence, inter alia, to
- erect or keep erected any tent or similar structure
- display any sign
- make or give any speech or public address
and astonishingly even
- fail to comply with a reasonable direction given by an authorised person to leave the square.
It is my belief that this is an outrageous and unprecedented attack on our freedom as citizens. The notice explains that any objection to the confirmation of the Byelaws may be made by letter addressed to Carl Schnackenberg, Department for Culture, Media and Sport, 2-4 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5DH, or by email to: Carl.Schnackenberg@Culture.gsi.gov.uk.”
