STAND AGAINST HARSH NEW LAWS FOR ROADSIDE CAMPS
The Government is planning to bring in new harsh laws for nomadic people. Tell your MP to end these plans to criminalise people living on roadside camps.
There is a significant national shortage of places for nomadic Gypsies and Travellers to legally and safely stop. However, the Government is planning to bring in new laws which mean people who live on roadside camps could face time in prison, a £2500 fine or their home being taken from them.
While the Government says that the laws are meant to target only a small number of people who engage in anti-social behaviour on roadside camps, in reality, the proposals are widely open to interpretation and are likely to impact upon everyone who is or wishes to live nomadically - by culture, choice or necessity.
Everybody needs a place to live. It should not be a crime to have nowhere to go.
