  • Defend our A&E at Broomfield Hospital
    21/07/17 - We Won! NHS bosses have announced they are scrapping plans to downgrade Broomfield A&E. We are obviously very pleased – this is a victory for people power' said Defend Our A&E Broomfield campaign coordinator Andy Abbott. 'It shows the importance of campaigning, of organising, and fighting back. Because if people in mid and south Essex had sat back and done nothing, these dangerous cuts to our A&E services would still be going ahead. So it's a big well done to the more than 30,000 people who have signed our paper and online petitions, and to the hundreds that have supported our public meetings and demonstrations.' 'However, the devil is always in the detail. So we await to see what the Success Regime's final proposals are. However at this stage it's a warm if cautious welcome to the announcement.' Read more at

  • Help us stop the government from splitting our family up
    UPDATE: We won! 15/07/17 Yesterday, Carlos and I went before a court judge to determine if we could stay here together in the UK. It was a strange morning as we prepared to fight for our right to be a family here! But it is with a huge smile that I can report that the judge overturned the Home Office's refusal to allow us to be a family and within less than 30 minutes not only had we finished his session but he asked Carlos to return to his seat and told him there and then that he would grant him Right to Remain!!!!!! Sanity, compassion and humanity prevailed yesterday :)

    30/07/17 As a signatory to the petition “Stop the Shameful Deportation of Kentish Town’s Stoly Jankovic” earlier this year, you will certainly be delighted to know that the Home Office confirmed yesterday that Stoly has been granted leave to remain in the UK, with permission to work. In 2019, he will become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of his legal team, his MP Keir Starmer, and each and every one of you, justice has been done. To all of Stoly’s supporters locally, across the UK and even across the globe, this is the moment to say a huge THANK YOU and well done! 03/04/17 STOP PRESS: We have just had an update from Stoly's MP Keir Starmer, who has received written confirmation from Robert Goodwill, the immigration minister, that Stoly has been granted a 14-day stay of his deportation while he prepares his legal case. CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all his supporters who have signed the petition so far. This opportunity for Stoly to make his case is all thanks to you, and also to Keir Starmer, who has been working tirelessly and to great effect on his behalf. This is not the end of the road: there is still a difficult legal case ahead, and we will keep you posted to let you know how you can continue to support Stoly over the coming days and weeks. But for now, this has been a good weekend's work - well done, and watch this space! Neil Finer

  • Close the dark-money loophole in campaign finance
    We Won! 07/07/17 Thanks to your pressure, we've pushed the UK government to change the law to end anonymous political donations! Back in February you signed openDemocracy's petition demanding to know who gave Northern Ireland's DUP £435,000 for lavish pro-Brexit campaigning. After openDemocracy journalists exposed this mystery donation, thousands joined our call for transparency. Under pressure from our investigation, Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire last week announced the government will end anonymous political donations in Northern Ireland. But there's a catch... The new rules will not apply retroactively, and therefore won't expose where the DUP got all that Brexit money from. We aren't going to drop this.
