This is not about breaking the law. The law says you can "opt out" of going through the x-ray scanner and be hand searched. The hand search is very time and labor intensive so it might slow down the lines at the airport on the busiest flying day of the year.
It's called a protest.
I know that, and you know that, but I doubt very much that the government would be overly bothered by the fact.
The government want opt-outs to be as humiliating as possible. If they were to say something along the lines of "law abiding citizens wouldn't want to bring our transport system grinding to a halt", they can imply that protesters are no better than criminals.

I guess it depends how cynical you are about the law-making process. Whilst I'm yet to make my mind up on the current government, I can definitely see why some people make the jump to thinking that this is as good as done. It's not as if the previous government particularly cared about our rights after all.

I like to be modded up as much as the next person, but Insightful? Jeez, I was trying for Funny.
That's ok, you were then modded Funny for being insightful into your mods. Personally, I'm still waiting for a +5 Cynical.
