RECLAIM DEMOCRACY (… or did it ever exist????)
————-official SHAG mailout——————–
The Government has chosen to ignore the 95% of responses to its own consultation paper which stated that the existing laws concerning squatting were adequate. It has also ignored the recent letter signed by 160 lawyers and academics, denouncing the biased media coverage and uninformed politicians, who also advised that the existing laws were adequate.
It is now planning to rush in a clause on the Legal Aid Bill which will criminalise squatting in residential properties.
This is due to happen as soon as next Tuesday.
Let Us Reclaim Democracy.
This is a call out to all individuals to come into Parliament on Tuesday, 1st November.
The debate begins at 4pm on the Legal Aid Bill.
We have a legal right as citizens to enter Parliament from 2.30-10pm.
Meet up outside Parliament at 2pm to enter and talk to our MPs.
Please come in numbers to let the Government know that the 95% of the people in the recent consultation on squatting who oppose criminalisation should be listened to.
Or else where is the democracy?

Over the weekend why not email your local MP to advise them how to vote?
