I suggest a campaign about ...

Ban "kettling". It is a clear infringement of a democratic right. Call it: Don't Put the Kettle On.

        Kettling is an appalling practice, its purpose only to prevent lawful protest and antagonise a crowd into more extreme reactions. The many are punished in advance of the actions of the few. It also contravenes the laws of the land, it is unlawful detention.

        I find this tactic provocative, punishing & bullying. It creates deep distrust & disrespect between both sides.

        I too believe that kettling is a dreadful over reaction to protest and almost guaranteed to cause panic and fear which can turn to violence.

        TY Loraine. I believe its a tactic used to deliberatly provoke a crowd into violence. Disgusting.

        I’m strongly against it and what goes with it. Big problem though is that it works as a way to prevent violence and damage spreading. How do we give them an alternative?

        It was closer to 8 hours that they were kettled because they were surrounded from about 1pm. Kettling is barbaric and just causes people to become traumtised, upset, frustrated and is dangerous. I am against it 100%
