Priti Patel – 2021 Comments on M25 Climate Protesters

The comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 22 September 2021.

This injunction is an important step in stopping these activists putting lives needlessly at risk on our busy roads.

Peaceful protest is a cornerstone of our democracy and there will always be space for people to make their voices heard. It cannot be at the expense of public safety.

The police have our full support in cracking down on this reckless behaviour.
