review the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 – raves clause

Comment 7th July 2010

under "Powers in relation to raves" anytime there is

(a) two or more persons are making preparations for the holding there of a gathering to which this section applies,

(b) ten or more persons are waiting for such a gathering to begin there, or

(c) ten or more persons are attending such a gathering which is in progress,

Now curiously enough a gathering is defined by having " “music” includes sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats."

The police have the power to move you on under these cirumstances!

Why does this matter?

I had a picnic with a few friends and their kids on Hampstead Heath in the summer – people brought along a few bongos – low and behold we were asked to "move on" under this act – HOW RIDICULOUS!
