SOCPA protesters gather in London to repeat protests calling for the repeal of sections 132-138 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 aka SOCPA.
The protest takes place as the government concede defeat and place the offending sections of SOCPA before Parliament for repeal.
The protesters begin from Trafalgar Square and walk through the SOCPA zone along Whitehall to Parliament Square and then onto the Home Office before visiting the Security and Intelligence Services at MI5 before returning back to Trafalgar Square.
The police adopt a more tolerant tone to the protesters in marked contrast to an earlier protest on January 12th (see 12/01/2008).
London. 5th April 2008.
