DONATE: Fight back against Priti Patel's Policing Bill

March 17, 2021 12:31 pm

On Tuesday night, MPs took the next step towards voting away your right to free protest. But it isn't over yet.

A million of you marched with us in 2019. Unless we act now, we may never be able to do so again.

While we thank the many MPs who voted to defend our right to stand up to those in power, sadly they were not successful.

Tens of thousands of you wrote to your MP in under 24 hours, and today you helped us hit our £20,000 target.

But we must keep on fighting this undemocratic Bill. Can you help us reach £25,000? The more money we raise, the more people we can speak to, the more ads we can run, and the more work we can do to prevent this bill passing further stages.

Will you spare £10 in the fight for free protest?

What happens next?

On Tuesday night the bill passed the 2nd reading stage. Before it becomes law, there will be a committee stage, report stage and third reading. Then it passes to the Lords for several readings too. With your help we can stop this bill by campaigning at the next stage of the bill; committee stage. 

What is this Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill?

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, currently being debated in parliament, is set to give the Home Secretary unprecedented power to limit freedom of expression.

Those judged to have caused “serious annoyance” at a protest could face up to 10 years in prison. And the Bill would expand the restriction zone from Parliament Square Green to all the roads surrounding it and up Whitehall - the government would never hear another protest again.

This is not about the ethics of mass-protest during the pandemic. This Bill seeks to fundamentally and permanently undermine our right to protest. The Bill even gives police powers over COVID-safe “one-person protests”.

That's why we ask for your address and a phone number. If the same person donates more than once and their donations add up to more than £500 in the same calendar year, the same rule applies.
