Want to help stop the gagging law? There’s a public meeting happening in Chippenham on 18th October. Your MP, Duncan Hames, has already confirmed that he’s attending. But we need to pack the meeting with lots of his constituents. Can you come?
Here are the details:
Friday 18th October
Chippenham Town Hall, High Street, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN15 3ER
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Your MP, Duncan Hames, is one of the MPs that we need to vote against the gagging law, if we’re going to stop it. 38 Degrees members voted to focus on public meetings as a way of persuading MPs to make a stand against the gagging law. We know it’s a very effective tactic. But we need to make sure the meeting is packed full to the rafters. To work, it needs to be big.
MPs will vote on the gagging law again on October 8th. Let’s make sure that for Duncan Hames MP, the thought of justifying the way he voted face-to-face with hundreds of constituents will be front of mind when he casts his votes. If we can get lots of people to turn out, it’s bound to impact on what your MP does as the law continues its way through parliament.
Everyone is welcome to come along, so please bring your friends and family. Even if you don’t want to ask a question, it will be interesting to hear what your MP, Duncan Hames, and the speakers have to say on the gagging law.
Please RSVP in the comments below.
Hope to see you there!
