MOPAC has indicated in a response to the Network for Police Monitoring (NetPol) that the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) will be publishing a full response to NetPol’s report, Restricting the Rebellion, published in November 2019. When will this MPS response be published?

I have been informed by the MPS that it will not be providing a full response to NetPol’s report. The MPS is aware of the concerns raised over how disabled protestors were treated during the October Extinction Rebellion protests and have provided assurance that they have worked with its Disability Independent Advisory Group (DIAG) to fully understand these issues. The MPS will continue to work closely with the DIAG to ensure better mutual understanding of the issues that relate to disabled protest groups or individuals. Furthermore, disabled protestors have been encouraged to work with the Police Liaison Team (PLT) on the ground to talk about issues or concerns.
