JS> G8 summit: Sheffield people denounce suppression of the right to protest.

In one debate I got involved in today someone pointed out that we
don't actually have a right to protest and never have had.

JS> The police have invoked special powers to prevent protests,

Do we know what powers have been invoked yet? As far as I can see with
Derby they (mis)used the Public Order Act of 1986. Not so much a
'special power' but an abuse of a law which they had no justification
for using.
