As members of 38 Degrees, each one of us helps decide the issues we work on together to make change happen. Knowing what all of us care about is vital.
On Monday morning, the office team sit down with the results of this survey to help decide what’s on the table for the week. Here are the results (click on the image for a larger version):
We work best when we decide what to do together. People power shapes what we do together every day, and every week we ask you to decide what we should do next.
Since 38 Degrees started over six years ago we’ve grown together into a powerful movement. There are millions of us across the UK. Part of our strength is our ability to work on more than one issue at a time.
Here’s the list of questions in full for this week’s poll:
Should 38 Degrees…
- Protect the NHS from privatisation, increase its funding and fight local hospital closures
- Campaign to make sure big corporations – like Google – are paying their fair share of tax, and don’t get away with tax dodging
- Campaign to stop cuts to Employment & Support Allowance that disabled and seriously ill people need to survive when they’re unable to work
- Fight against welfare cuts that affect the poorest and most vulnerable
- Stop TTIP – the dangerous trade deal which could let corporations sue the government
- Should we campaign to protect Attendance Allowance – the support given to elderly people with disabilities which means they can live in their own homes?
- Extend the Freedom of Information Act to include companies that receive public money to provide public services
- Campaign to protect our bees – vital to life on Earth – from habitat destruction and bee-killing pesticides
- Campaign to stop CETA – the lesser-known evil twin of TTIP. It’s another dangerous trade deal which could let corporations sue the government.
- Should we campaign to stop councils spraying toxic pesticides linked to cancer in our parks, play areas and public spaces?
- Campaign to stop the government ripping the heart out of the BBC, forcing it axe local radio stations and much-loved tv shows
- Should we campaign to stop health food store Holland & Barrett forcing their suppliers – many of whom are small, family run businesses – to slash prices to boost their profits?
