Gagging Law: Support is growing
By 38 Degrees team
I thought you might be interested to see this article from last week:
I really liked this line:
“The government is attacking charities because it is terrified of them, and this is for a very good reason… If MPs are anxious about the impact a charity could have with a campaign they are dead right to be: just one petition from 38 Degrees could decimate a candidate’s chances for years.”
The campaign against the gagging law is about far more than just the fate of 38 Degrees. It’s about defending everyone’s right to have their say. And it’s about the government’s failure to tackle the real problems with how politics works – the millionaire party donors, the shadowy corporate lobbyists, the broken promises.
But it’s still nice to be recognised! And this article shows that we’re gaining real momentum. Thanks so much for being part of making that happen.
