Terrorism Bill - Possible Effect on Anti-Nuclear Protestors

The Terrorism Bill has serious implications for the civil liberties of anti-nuclear and peace protesters. Our main concern is with Clauses 10, 11 and 12 - the parts of the Bill that relate to nuclear facilities. We are aware that the Terrorism Act 2000 has been used to target activists and campaigners in recent years and we are deeply concerned that these new measures could criminalise the actions of peace campaigners as terrorist activities. We welcome the recognition by the Government that nuclear facilities are a potential terrorist target. However it is alarming that the very people who have highlighted the terrorist threat posed by nuclear facilities in the UK could be classed as terrorists themselves.
