Gagging Law: come to a meeting with Simon Wright
By Megan Bentall
Want to help stop the gagging law? There’s a public meeting happening in Norwich South on 25th October. Your MP, Simon Wright, says he’s free, but he wants to know that it will be a big meeting before he confirms that he’ll attend. Can you come?
Here are the details:
Friday 25th October
Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Your MP, Simon Wright, 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. Simon Wright has already confirmed that he’s free on that date. But we need to pack the meeting with lots of his constituents.
MPs will vote on the gagging law again on October 8th. Let’s make sure that for Simon Wright, 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 all your friends and family. Even if you don’t want to ask a question, it will be interesting to hear what your MP, Simon Wright, and the speakers have to say on the gagging law.

We hope to see you there!
