Large corporations and local government are increasingly turning towards injunctions to restrict the right to demonstrate. This talk will look at means to defend injunctions, challenge the torts frequently used and protect freedom of expression, as well as defending contempt of court proceedings for those alleged to have breached court orders. It will look at the recent Court of Appeal decisions in Boyd v INEOS, Lawrie v Cuadrilla Bowland and Canada Goose v Persons Unknown.

It is part of a series of webinars on protest law. See here.
