📣📣🥁🥁Act on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 🥁🥁📣📣
15th January 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The House of Lords will vote on the government’s amendments to the PCSC Bill on 17th January: we have until then to persuade them to ditch these further, staggering restrictions on our right to peaceful protest.
🌟15th January: Act on the Streets. Gather on Cornmarket 12-2pm. Bring bike locks, (or glue?) and placards saying ‘The PCSC Bill means I could be arrested for carrying this’ (or message of your choice). We will have samba and leafleting; most people know nothing about the implications of this bill – we need to raise awareness.
🌟Until 17th January: Engage the Lords. The Digital Rebellion team have made it incredibly easy to contact Lords (by phone, twitter or email) with your concerns about the amendments: just follow this link for a step by step guide: https://digitalrebellion.uk/policingbill Act in your own time, or get together with others for a lobbying session.
