Two ASBOs sought against Christian Peace Campaigners

Chris and Martin with Sr Susan disarming AWE Aldermaston.
Following the recent announcement that the CPS* are seeking a ten year ban on Chris Cole entering the Westminster area Fr Martin Newell faces the same procedure.

Both Martin and Chris have a long history of direct action and public liturgy at places of violence. Both are likely to have ASBOs preventing them from going near to Westminster for ten years.

These ASBOs have particular implications because every citizen has a right to address her or his MP in Westminster.

Do you know of any similar ASBOs being handed out or attempted by the CPS?
