  • Get Rid of the IPP sentence that was abolished
    I was given an IPP sentence on the day they made changes that to the sentence so you could not receive small tariffs. I have been out of prison since Oct 2013, but not everyone has Bren lucky to get parole and since all of this the sentence has been abolished. It is important to me as an IPP released prisoner, the sentence messes with people mentally and people are suffering and being forget about in prison.

  • Protect our justice! Keep trials by jury
    It is all of our human right to have access to a fair trial. But right now there is a risk that trial by juries could be scrapped, to try to deal with the backlog of court cases because of coronavirus. It could mean those of us waiting to get justice, won’t get a fair trial. Removing jurors from court hearings can have huge implications on those of us who face oppression and discrimination. The diversity and variety of jurors helps ensure the justice system is fair and efficient by having more experiences and voices in the room. The risk of taking juries away and leaving a decision on a trial to just one person could have lasting impacts and hit certain groups in our society harder.

  • Do not suspend trial by jury to catch up with court case backlog
    The right to trial by jury is an ancient and essential part of the English Legal System and to remove it or erode it in any form would be a disaster for the common people. Once rights are eroded it is almost impossible to win them back. We don't won't to start sliding down that slope.

  • Change Slavers Street names in Scotland starting with Dundas Street.
    Some street names glorify the people who profited from slavery. These same people were paid to give up their slaves and made a vast profit from this vile industry. Henry Dundas who was a powerful politician in the 1790s who delayed the abolition of the slave trade by fifteen years. His family were slave owners. In the fifteen year delay, some 63000 slaves were not given their freedom. Also, there should be a review of all streets in Scotland bearing the names of known slavers. Change the name so that we do not to glorify the name of any known slaver. Any statue plaques should have a modern interpretation and a full history detailed to educate the public.

  • Justice for Keiran
    On 3rd June 2020, a video emerged of two white teenagers forcing a black teenager with Autism to kiss their trainers at Holmfirth Cricket Club in West Yorkshire. The sickening video was filmed by at least one other person and bystanders can be heard laughing in the background. Racist abuse such as this is common place across the UK but all too often victims are forced to endure the suffering in silence. Given the context of recent global events, we believe this crime to be particularly callous. The repeated demands to ‘get on your knees’ and ‘kiss my trainers’ and the threat to ’slap 50 shades of black’ out of the victim make it clear that this crime was motivated by the victims ethnicity. We are petitioning Jason McCartney MP to stamp out racism and hate crime in his local constituency and support Keiran's campaign for justice. No justice. No peace.

  • Stop the sale of bullets, tear gas and shield to US police
    Black Lives Matter UK manufacturers are complicit in the violence towards Americans involved in protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. By law, the UK government should be obligated to "freeze" the export of "all policing and security equipment" to the US where it could be misused and yet has failed to act or even to condemn police brutality in the US.

  • Justice for Belly Mujinga
    Because Belly Mujinga was only doing her job working in public transport in London in this COVID-19 situation. She has family, friends who are devastated of her death. Her family deserve justice. The police have decided to drop the case but this needs to be reinvestigated. There was a man using London transport knowing that he had COVID-19, so he purposely spat on Belly Mujinga. She then died two weeks later. The man spat on two of the railway staff, and the other transport member also got sick, as well as Belly Mujinga who sadly died.

  • Test all UK prisoners for COVID-19
    Prisons provide the ideal setting for contagious diseases to wreak havoc. They are crowded, cramped, often unsanitary institutions, with inadequate healthcare provision for a population often already in poor health. We also have an ageing custodial population, with many prisoners now in the age group at greatest risk of complications from Coronavirus. Many more prisoners will become seriously ill and die.
