#AceNewsReport – Oct.15: The Metropolitan Police Service warned demonstrators linked to the Extinction Rebellion ‘Autumn Uprising’ they face arrest if they continue to assemble to protest in central London today: Last night a condition was imposed under Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 ordering them to cease their protests within London by 21:00hrs: More than 1,400 people have been arrested in connection with the protests and a significant policing operation continues in the capital.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Laurence Taylor said: “We have made good progress clearing Trafalgar Square and other sites to enable the capital to return to normal following more than a week of protests: “However, due to continued breaches of the section 14 condition previously implemented and ongoing serious disruption this further condition was imposed…………………”This was an operational policing decision to help us get London moving again……………”After nine days of disruption we felt it is entirely proportionate and reasonable to impose this condition because of the cumulative impact of these protests………………..”A significant policing operation continues and we will take robust action against anyone engaged in unlawful protests at locations targeted by Extinction Rebellion.
However, I want to be absolutely clear: This does not mean people are banned from protesting in London. The condition applies specifically to the Extinction Rebellion ‘Autumn Uprising’…………………..”If Extinction Rebellion, or any other group, come to us with a proposal for lawful protests then of course we will discuss that with them.”
Details of the further condition: On Monday, 14 October 2019, the Metropolitan Police Service imposed the following condition upon the ongoing Extinction Rebellion demonstrations in central London, under Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986: “Any assembly linked to the Extinction Rebellion ‘Autumn Uprising’…must now cease their protest(s) within London (Metropolitan Police Service, and City of London areas) by 21:00hrs [on Monday] 14th October 2019.”…………Protestors have been notified, and were given the opportunity to leave the site. Anyone who fails to comply with the condition is liable for arrest and prosecution.
