Dear John 

They want to stop us protesting in Parliament Square. We must not let them. 

Clauses in the government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which will be debated in the House of Lords next week, will impose a blanket ban on protesting within hearing range of the House of Commons Chamber. 

The UK’s democracy is built on the bedrock of freedoms for the British people. Please sign the petition now and oppose the erosion of our rights to make our voices heard in Parliament.

There is hope, however. Best for Britain is working closely with peers to amend the bill to secure the right to protest in Parliament Square and we are supporting two new amendments to the Bill, which I am proud to have helped draft. Find out more here. <[link removed]>

Clause 59 of the bill would, through complex and technical means, impose an effective ban on large-scale demonstrations in Parliament Square, removing protest and dissent from an place where it might have great influence. 

The Government wants to limit the ways ordinary people can challenge them. I hope you, like me, agree this is not how a modern democratic government should behave.

By changing this one part of the bill, we can hope to retain this vital method of holding power to account. Protests are meant to make an impact - and that is something I fear this Government does not want. Sign the petition today - and make sure your voice can still be heard.

Whatever our political differences, it is important that we are all allowed to air them freely and fairly. That’s something my political career has taught me, and I want to preserve that right for future generations. 

Best wishes,

Dominic Grieve
