We have a lot to catch up on… Let’s start with some good news.
Covid Passes could be on the way out!
The weekend has arrived, read the headlines below and give yourself a pat on the back because there’s no doubt that our community is gradually forcing them out!
*Sorry to kill the mood but now time for the serious stuff*
An official announcement on Covid Passes could be coming within days. Whatever the decision is, we won’t stop campaigning against them until they are in the history books!

The Government wants to stop you from protesting.
If next week couldn’t be gripping enough already, MPs will be debating the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill on Monday. This draconian Bill wants to silence activists like you and I by creating 10-year sentences for protests that risk “annoyance”, “inconvenience” or “disease”, putting our protest rights on lockdown for good.
The Bill would introduce curbs on “noisy” protests and even place limitations on one-person protests. The right to protest is at the heart of any democracy and no matter what your political beliefs are, no one can accept being silenced like this.
Read our briefing to MPs ahead of Monday’s debate here.
