Third Sector Podcast: The right to protest

Rebecca and Emily are joined by Liberty's Emmanuelle Andrews to discuss legislation that could make charity campaigning more difficult

Third Sector Podcast

This week, Third Sector's editor Emily Burt and features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney discuss the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - a piece of legislation that is currently working its way through parliament.

The Police Bill Alliance is a group of civil society organisations who are opposing the legislation, arguing that measures proposed in the bill will severely limit the right to protest in the UK and is an assault on freedom, rights and marginalised communities.

Rebecca and Emily are joined by Emmanuelle Andrews, policy and campaigns manager at the campaign group Liberty, which is a member of the PBA, to discuss what impact the legislation could have on civil society organisations and the people they support.

This week's Good News Bulletin features Rocco, the dog who learned sign language while being cared for at an RSPCA centre, and the trio of women who broke the world record for rowing across the Atlantic while raising money for cancer charities.

You can listen to the episode below, or wherever you get your podcasts:

- Correction: In the episode, Liberty is referred to as a charity when it is a not-for-profit campaign group with a charitable arm.
