I do not support this Group, because they are in fact sabotaging our rights and I think That the fact many of them are academics suggests that they are not really on the side of "Legitimate genuine petitioning"
Protesting is not petitioning. If it is not for purpose of collecting signatures and getting a matter remedied in parliament.
I Just think that they are trying to bring bad publicity to our rights and they are literally trying to get them taken away from us.
With So many People, Crowds and crowds of Supporters there are plenty enough to get the 100,000 signatures very easily without public gatherings and protests..
I went on the website and I didn't see one single petition link I could go to & Sign.
Its all just "Promotion of a cause" Public awareness of a concern... They might be calling for government action.. But I just myself cannot see how it is petitioning without legitimate petitions running...
They have not even set out proposals for petitions they are working on and though they have information on their website Its Not asking me to Sign anything
All my petitions & Work is specific for submission to Parliament. For that Purpose.
And all actions have purpose of [OBTAINING] evidence valuable and required for knowledge and proof..
Road Signage Evidence, Surveys, Camera Readings, Statements from Police Officers, are actual evidence.
The closest I "Thought" of an Idea to what that story Reports in the Link..
Was Making some large "BENTCOP.BIZ" Signs with the actual website on them.... And Using Regulation standard Attachments to fasten them up by other road signs. (The Government have sponsors on their own Road Signage) Such as MacDonald's at the side of the Motorway...
So... My Legal Opinion is.. If the Government do it... It is acceptable. To use the same resources that the government use, which is not damage. Or Distraction.
The Police/Council would not climb up on the top of a Building and smash a glass roof with a hammer (To Promote an event) Unless they hired a theatre company) Or Stage show.. Sometimes they have street performers. Council hired.. and explosives displays outside the Railway station.. Sonic Boom sounds and fire eaters..
But a SIGN is Fastened to promote a cause in the same manner as the council use them.
The Fire Brigade might smash a roof with a hammer [IF THERE WAS SOMEONE STUCK UP THERE] or in a [FIRE] situation or if someone was trapped..
But that [REASON] is EMERGENCY* reason. Not Promoting anything.
Would the Council hire a Street Performer or "Theatre Promotion" Company.. to put on a Street show" where the actors climbed up onto the buildings & Smashed glass??
Highly unlikely... Unless they were friends of the government or possibly political reasons..
Which is why I am certain the Government have "set this up" and led these Extinction Rebellion members.. to do this... actually led them to cross the line.. so that they can have excuse to try & take away our rights. Which actually do exist.
