Weekly Economics Podcast: the Police Bill

Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Zehrah Hasan and Becka Hudson


Throughout the spring, hundreds of thousands of people across the country marched, signed petitions, and spoke out against the catchily-titled Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. Critics say the Bill would curb our freedom of speech and assembly by giving the police new powers to crack down on protest. The Bill was successfully delayed — but it’s due to resurface in Parliament next week.

So what’s actually in the Police Bill? How will it affect Black and other people of colour? And why is the government pushing it through Parliament now?

Ayeisha is joined by Zehrah Hasan, barrister, & founding member and director of Black Protest Legal Support and Becka Hudson, PhD researcher at UCL and Birkbeck, and criminal justice campaigner.
