Further to Freedom of Speech is Now in Handcuffs, relating to my ’10th anniversary’ posting, the arrested/’de-arrested’ street preacher is now receiving help from the legal centre at Christian Concern, who have opened this invitation to the public:
‘If you want to make a stand for the freedom of Christian street preachers to preach on the streets of our nation without suppression, please sign this petition.’
I’ve spent some time checking their Video of Street Preacher Arrest Goes Viral and the content of its links and details therein from the witness who took the video. It also has a copy of the response from a police commander.
Our police officers need to uphold the freedoms that are enshrined in law to preach in public, so you may wish to join me in petitioning the Home Secretary for the protection of street preachers.
