The Null Device
Details have emerged of Britain's anti-terrorism bill,
revealing that it contains draconian new police powers
and restrictions on
protest activity. The bill makes it a criminal offense to publish details of
the movement of nuclear waste trains (which sounds like an echo of China's state secret legislation), and gives the police power to jail demonstrators who refuse to remove masks or face paint, as well as including surveillance powers which
have previously failed to pass parliament.
Various voices in the wilderness have strongly condemned the new bill,
which is expected to be passed into law shortly.
