Campaigns and Events

With ongoing campaigns to uphold fundamental rights for citizen, and against parties and policies that seek to remove them.  We bring news of a nearby campaign and a local event.

#Together Croydon

Join Together Croydon for Dinner & Debate on the subject of “Keeping Cash?”, on Thursday 23rd March in Beckenham.

Together Croydon’s first ‘dinner and debate,’ discussing the role of cash in Britain and how we see the need for cash in the future.  If we agree that keeping cash widely used into the future is important, how would we best go about influencing and campaigning for this? 

The debate will be moderated by a member of the group. You’re free to contribute or just listen and enjoy some good company with like-minded people.  Your starter, main and dessert at our venue, an Italian bistro, are all included in the price for what promises to be a fun evening. There will be a cash bar.

Time : start 7.30pm – ~9.30pm
Date : Thursday 23rd March 2023
Location : Goodfella Beckenham, 129 Croydon Road, Elmers End, Beckenham. BR3 3RA

Notliblabcon.org say Westminster scorns the taxpayer and, with Lib/Lab/Con/Green, nothing will change.  They have a leaflet available at https://www.notliblabcon.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/NLLC-Leaflet-Web.pdf and are asking people to vote for an Independent, or other party than those at Westminster. 

Can you help distribute these leaflets?  Get involved and order some from https://www.notliblabcon.org/ to push back against the parties of Westminster. 

Stop ULEZ expansion.

We had another good day of campaigning in Addiscombe against ULEZ expansion.  Mike’s video from the day below.  If you want to get involved join us in Purley on the 8th April.

Help stop ULEZ expansion – more street stalls

We’ve seen huge support in opposing ULEZ expansion during our recent successful street stalls in Coulsdon and Sutton.  We’re now planning two more street stalls in Addiscombe on the 4th March and Purley on the 8th April. 

We will be distributing leaflets directing people to our Stop ULEZ Expansion page, which has links to Petitions, and more information. 

If you’re free, please come and join us raising awareness of the important issue.  Help stop ULEZ which will cost many thousands, will hurt small business and the poorest hardest.

Help stop ULEZ expansion – street stalls

The Mayor of London plans to expand the ULEZ zone to include all Greater London in August this year.  Vehicles not meeting the compliance standards will be charged £12.50 a day if driven inside the zone.

Croydon, Sutton, Hillingdon, Harrow, and Bexley councils have all come out against the plan.  We are planning to hold 2 street stalls on Saturday 4th February in Coulsdon, and Saturday 25th February in Sutton to raise awareness and direct people to campaigns against the scheme.

We will be distributing leaflets directing people to our Stop ULEZ Expansion page, which has links to Petitions, and more information.
