Police and Demonstrators Clash During 'Kill the Bill' Protest in Bristol

Protesters clashed with police during a “Kill the Bill” demonstration in Bristol, England, on March 21, in response to a new bill which would give police more power to restrict protests.

Under the proposed bill police would have power to restrict protests that were “intentionally or recklessly causing public nuisance,” a government briefing document said.
