LGT starts campaign against injunctions

September 24, 2019

Following the judgement that refused Bromley’s injunction against stopping on land in the Borough earlier this year, the council is appealing the decision and is supported by three other local authorities in London. London Gypsies and Travellers will continue to be involved in the appeal hearing which will take place on 3rd December at the Royal Courts of Justice.

We are starting a public campaign to raise the profile of this case and the impacts of injunctions on Gypsies and Travellers across the country.

To promote the campaign, Gypsies and Travellers, LGT staff and supporters gathered on Friday 20th September outside Islington Town Hall for a group photo, joining the large rally in support of the climate strike. Mena Mongan, LGT’s Community Engagement Officer gave an inspiring speech , saying that change will come from people standing together in solidarity.

We welcome all Gypsies and Travellers and supporters to get involved in the campaign in any way you can. Please come to our first campaign meeting on Tuesday 1st October, from 6.30-8pm at the LGT office at the Mildmay Community Centre, N16 8NA, Woodville Road, London.

We will talk about how injunctions are affecting Gypsies and Travellers across the country and what we can do together to stop this.

If you want to find out more please get in touch with Tanya Murat at LGT on 07494641746 or tmurat@londongandt.org.uk
