  • 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.

  • Don't deport the Newark Four
    UPDATE: 29/07/17 - We won! International students told they can stay! Lingtzu Chen, 31, and Meng-Hsiu Tsai, from Taiwan, Australian Daniel Chick, and Yasuhiro Nakashima, from Japan, who are students at the Newark School of Violin-Making and Repair, were due to be deported after July 31 because their international visas had been cancelled by the Home Office. But yesterday the UK Visas and Immigration Service confirmed the students could stay in the UK and complete their studies at the school, which is part of the Lincoln College Group (LCG). http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/news/2017/06/29/international-students-told-they-can-stay-after-all

  • Save Speakers' Corner
    UPDATE: 29/07/17 - we won! I am thrilled that the Metropolitan Police have taken steps to review their decision regarding the 'soap box ban' in Speakers' Corner. They state: ‘Further discussions have taken place around the use of ladders this week and it has been agreed that two-step ladders can be used if it’s safe to do so. ‘However, if officers believe it’s unsafe due to crowd numbers they can make an operational decision to ask speakers to come down. Police continue to support open-air ­public speaking, debate and discussion at Speakers’ Corner.’ We will need to remain vigilant but thanks to your efforts we have made an impact.

  • Give Us Back Our Bloomin’ Anchor
    UPDATE - We'd like to say a big Thank You for signing our petition Give Us Back Our Bloomin’ Anchor and helping us to reach a big milestone in our campaign. Last week the Mayor and Cabinet approved the anchor’s return to the south end of the Deptford High Street! However, we are not happy with their intended positioning of the anchor itself. It is being placed off to the side between two trees, a rubbish bin and the way finding obelisk. It needs to be placed in the centre where it can be seen from all points so that it can resume its role as an important landmark, focal point and symbol of Deptford’s maritime heritage. We'll all be looking forward to seeing our bloomin' anchor back where it belongs.
