Resist the Legal Attacks

In Britain we are facing three simultaneous attacks in Parliament

  • Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill
  • Nationality and Borders Bill
  • Repeal of the Human Rights Act.

Caribbean Labour Solidarity sees these as a linked offensive that needs to be resisted.

We shall have three speakers

  • Nadine Finch – an expert in children’s rights and human trafficking
  • Jacqueline McKenzie – leads a team of lawyers who specialise in immigration and civil rights cases
  • Nicola Harries – legal adviser to Extinction Rebellion
