Gagging Law: Come to a meeting with Mike Crockart
By Megan Bentall
Want to help stop the gagging law? There’s a public meeting happening in Edinburgh West on Thursday 9th January. Your MP, Mike Crockart, has already confirmed that he’s attending. Now lets make sure it’s a successful public debate. Can you come?
Here are the details:
Where: Cosla Conference Centre, 19 Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh, Lothian EH12 5BH
When: Thursday 9th January
What time: 7:30pm
Mike Crockart has the power to put pressure on the government to make big changes to the gagging law. He’s failed to vote against it so far, but the gagging law just keeps coming under criticism. Last month the government actually conceded a 6 week pause to the law, so now is the perfect time to ramp up the campaign on our MPs.
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 – last month 38 Degrees members held massive meetings in lots of key constituencies. But if we want Mike Crockart to know his voters are against this law, lots of his constituents have to show up!
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 Mike Crockart and the speakers have to say on the gagging law.
