  • Release all pregnant people from prison
    One baby died at HMP Bronzefield in September 2019 and another at HMP Styal in June 2020. In both cases the mother gave birth in a prison cell rather than at hospital. The prisons and the Ministry of Justice have refused to release information publicly about why the mothers were not taken to hospital, despite being in labour. These deaths, and the resulting trauma for the families of the babies, could have been prevented with appropriate support and access to health care. This issue is now even more urgent due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Pregnant women have been included on the government’s list of those clinically vulnerable to COVID-19. In addition to this, prisons have responded to the pandemic by keeping prisoners locked in cells for 22 - 24 hours per day, increasing the risk of pregnant people going into labour in cells or being unable to access maternity care. The government acknowledged this with a promise in March 2020 to release pregnant women and women with babies in prison Mother and Baby Units, in order to allow them to safely self-isolate in the community. Despite this promise, according to the last figures stated by the government on 18th June, only six pregnant people and 16 new mothers have been released. We call on the Ministry of Justice to act immediately on this promise and release all pregnant people and mothers with babies in Mother and Baby Units, in order to prevent further harm and deaths.

  • Monkbretton Cemetery Barnsley
    Monkbretton cemetery has been a target of thefts from loved ones graves, including one of my family members. It’s clearly distressing to even understand why someone would steal from a sacred place.

  • Protect our justice system! Introduce virtual jury trials
    It is a fundamental human right to have access to a fair and representative trial. But right now in the UK, there is a risk that the suspension of trial by juries will create avoidable stress for those of us waiting to get justice. Virtual trial juries would help to tackle the backlog of cases and make sure that people are given a fair and representative trial. Not having trials can have huge implications on those of us who face oppression and discrimination. The diversity of jurors helps ensure the justice system is fair and efficient by having more experiences and voices in the room. The risk of not having jury trials could have lasting impacts and hit certain groups who experience discrimination - like Black, Asian or other people of colour - harder.

  • Stop Unfair Policing of Black Lives Matter
    Eight race hate crimes are reported every day in Northern Ireland. Black Lives Matter protesters last month took a huge stand against racism, and now the PSNI is punishing them for it. The news is full of reports and controversy on illegal gatherings, which are again threatening the chance of a stable government here. However it’s clear that the only group being punished through the hastily approved enforcement powers under Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 are those standing up for racial justice. The law they are being punished for was given enforcement powers at 11pm the night before the Black Lives Matter protests on the 6th June. Amnesty International have called it 'bad law' which effectively criminalises any protest the PSNI wish to target. https://caj.org.uk/2020/06/16/amnesty-and-caj-raise-concerns-over-laws-restricting-protest-ahead-of-assembly-debate/

  • 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.
