More violence at ‘Kill the bill’-demos across the UK as police clash with protesters.
LONDON, UK — On Sunday thousands marched to protest against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill again, which would give police more powers to impose restrictions on non-violent protests.
Police have said that 107 people were arrested in London during Saturday’s demonstrations against government plans to increase police powers.
Police said the “Kill the Bill” protests were mostly peaceful and most of those taking part observed social distancing.
They said a small number of people were intent on causing disruptions, and that those arrested committed alleged offences including violent disorder, assaulting police officers and breaches of coronavirus legislation.
The force said 10 officers had been injured, though none of the injuries was believed to be serious.
