Hundreds protest in London against bill limiting right to strike

Hundreds of people protested outside 10 Downing Street on Monday against a bill that would enforce minimum service levels during strikes in crucial sectors such as health care and public transport. The bill is the government's response to the worst wave of industrial action in decades. Business Secretary Grant Shapps said the move is designed to "ensure the safety of the British public." Protesters say the legislation will limit the civil liberties for which they have fought for centuries.
