The government announced plans to water down key parts of their gagging law. It’s not enough, but it is progress. If we keep the pressure up now, there’s a real chance we can get further big changes.
Lords gather for one of their last debates to vote on the gagging law next Wednesday. Lord Harries – one of the key Lords trying to stop this threat to democracy – is tabling amendments which would help protect freedom of speech. We need to help him win those votes.
A big petition will help Lord Harries win. He will carry it into the debating chamber - and announce the total signatures - right before the debate starts. Our signatures will prove to wavering peers that the public is against this threat to democracy.
Can you sign a new last-minute petition to asking Lords to vote the right way?
