The next #KillTheBill national day of action is on 29th May. The Bill (Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021) is an attempt to criminalise the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community as well as attempting to remove democratic rights won over centuries.
We have seen huge protests in this country in the last year over Black Lives Matter, Sarah Everard, Extinction Rebellion, Palestine and more. Indeed, this protest takes place just over a year since the murder of George Floyd re-ignited the Black Lives Matter movement.
We need to see this over this Bill too. Crucially, we need trade unionists and civil society to oppose this Bill in large numbers.
Please join us in protesting against attacks on our democratic rights; attacks on the right to protest or have picket lines; attacks on environmental or #BLM protesters; attacks on the GRT community.
Please get your union, campaign or organisation to add their name to this initial call by Birmingham TUC, supported, so far, by:
Dudley TUC
Walsall TUC
Stand Up To Racism Birmingham
West Midlands Palestine Solidarity Campaign
Birmingham Stop The War Coalition
Save Our Schools West Midlands
West Midlands People Before Profit
