Ask the Home Secretary to protect street preachers
Show your support for Oluwole Ilesanmi and other street preachers who have been arrested by police officers around the country.
On Saturday 23 February, a Christian street preacher was arrested in Southgate, London. Video footage of the arrest has now been watched by millions around the world and prompted widespread concern about the actions of the police.
Sadly, this is not the first time that Christian street preachers have been arrested in the UK. At the Christian Legal Centre, we have helped many street preachers who have been arrested, and in some cases faced criminal charges. Tony, Josh, Dominic, Bill, Rob, Mike, Michael and Adrian, Ian, Daniel, David, Stephen and many others have had their names cleared because of our help.
We are concerned about the actions of some police officers, and we’re calling on the UK’s Home Secretary to launch an urgent review to ensure that the police are trained to act within the law.
