Democracy is under threat so it’s time to protest!

A series of bad bills by this government has seen people gathering in protest once again. On January 17th, 2022 hundreds gathered in Bath and around the country to protest the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and on February 5th a crowd of almost 1000 assembled outside the Houses of Parliament to make their voices heard against the Elections Bill. I was there and wrote this article for West England Bylines, part of the nationwide network of online citizen journalism.

The speakers featured here are from top left: Gina Miller, Tom Brake, Klina Jordan, John McDonnell, Fleur Anderson, Hina Bokhari, Naomi Smith and, bottom right, Martha Spurrier. Further details can be found in by clicking on the link to the article.
