Glue

Protester who glued himself to Nanaimo bank sentenced with condition he cannot possess adhesives:

Brice and others were staging the demonstration to demand that RBC divest from the Coastal GasLink pipeline on Wet'suwet'en territory in northern British Columbia, according to a release at the time from environmental group Extinction Rebellion. [...]

Brice was handed a 12-month probation term as part of the discharge, with conditions that include keeping the peace, completing 40 hours of community service by Jan. 31, 2023 and not going to the RBC branch he protested at.

The discharge also carried an unusual condition, that Brice "must not posess any glue, Super Glue, adhesive, fixative, or resin outside your residence," except with the permission of his probation officer.

    Amateurs! They're only banning one person from owning glue!
    The UK government tried to make it an offence for anyone to carry glue (6 months in prison and an unlimited fine) if the Police decided they look shifty.
    Alas for the government, that amendment was rejected. Alas for everyone else in the UK, there's quite enough shit in the bill that did pass, that the police can deem that any protest is illegal.

    I always think people who glue themselves to things should be left alone. Would probably reconsider their tactics after about an hour.

    Not surprised the charges stuck.
