Stop the assault on our democratic freedoms

Let’s take a stand against the Government’s anti-democratic agenda.

Sign to protect our democratic freedoms, and our right to protest in the streets or at the ballot box. 

Today’s Queen’s Speech sets out a raft of anti-democratic measures, attacking our right to vote, our right to protest and our right to hold our leaders to account. 

After mass action from our supporters, we knew the Government would try to kick the extremist Policing Bill into the long-grass. Now, they are looking to rush through a whole series of anti-democratic measures unnoticed. 

Find out about the rights and protections the Government plans to attack:

Right to Protest

  • The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill would make causing “serious annoyance” at a protest punishable by up to 10 years in prison. 
  • Any protest is banned from Parliament Square Green to all the roads surrounding it and up Whitehall - the government would never hear another protest again.
  • Even COVID-safe, one-person protests will be restricted.

Right to Vote

Equal Votes

Scrutiny and Accountability 

  • Judicial Review is to be “reformed” to make it harder for unlawful decisions to be examined and challenged, after the Supreme Court ruled Johnson’s forced closure of Parliament illegal.
  • Elections watchdog the Electoral Commission is to be scrapped or weakened.

This is not the reform our country needs. What we need is more fairness in elections, democratic engagement for all people, and an electoral system that makes sure everyone’s vote counts.

Don’t let this assault on our freedom and civil liberties go unchallenged. Sign your name and take a stand.
