We are asking everyone who supports this case to contact their MP or any members of the House of Lords they know before Tuesday 6th November. Please urge them to attend the meeting in Parliament next week which will discuss how to stop the systematic abuse of private lives by undercover police officers and police forces. The meeting will be hosted by Caroline Lucas MP and chaired by Helena Kennedy QC. Speakers will include Harriet Wistrich from Birnberg Pierce, who is representing the claimants, and Guardian journalist Rob Evans. All MPs and Peers will already have received an invitation.
The meeting is close, so please send your email straight away.
- If it’s relevant to you and you’re comfortable doing so, outline how you have been personally affected by the revelations about undercover officer conduct
- Whether you have been personally affected or not, please explain to them why you feel things should be changed, so that no-one has to go through this again.
- Direct them to get acquainted with the issues – you could suggest that they listen to the File on Four programme about the issues http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01n11x6
Find the contact details for your MP here http://www.writetothem.com, where you can also find pointers on writing to your MP. Remember to include your name and address, to remind your MP that they work for you.
If you get a response from your MP, we’d be very grateful to hear what it is. Please forward responses to: Cassie Laver:
