'Kill the bill' protestors storm police station in Bristol
Guardian, 22 Mar 2021
Activists stormed a police station as a ‘Kill the Bill’ demonstration turned violent in Bristol.
Footage from The Bristol Cable shows protestors kicking in the windows of Bridewell police station and graffitiing the outside of it.
The protestors are opposed to the police, crime, sentencing and courts bill, which would give the police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on non-violent protests, including those deemed too noisy or a nuisance. Those convicted under the proposed legislation could face a fine or jail.
