Trial of CBR UK director Andy Stephenson proceeds (BBC video)
The trail of CBR UK Director Andy Stephenson continues this week in Brighton. Story here and here and here. It’s also the top story on BBC (video below). They are accused of violating the Public Order Act, which is being interpreted in this case to prohibit speech that causes other people to complain.
CBR Executive Director Gregg Cunningham is on hand to testify as an expert witness regarding the history of social reform in the UK. Had the Public Order Act been been in effect in the 1700s, and had it been applied against anti-slavery advocates in the same way as it is being applied against anti-abortion advocates, William Wilberforce, Thomas Clarkson, and nearly the entire abolitionist movement would have been jailed.
The charges against CBR UK staff member Kathryn Sloane have been dropped.
