Stop the Loan Charge, Save Lives! Protest Day – 3rd April
On Wednesday 3rd April 2019, LCAG campaigners are once again descending on Westminster to take part in a mass demonstration and lobby. This will take place one day BEFORE the Loan Charge debate in the House of Commons. This is to ensure you have time to lobby your MP face to face to encourage them to join the debate.
Why should I come along?
Our Lobby days have had an enormous impact. This is all coincidentally coming to a head right before the Loan Charge debate on Thursday April 4th 2019. Our mission is to get as many supportive MPs to challenge the Loan Charge and Wednesday is the perfect time to share your voice with others
How do I get involved?
Just turn up at 10:45 am on the 3rd April. We will meet in Parliament Square: map here https://www.parliament.uk/documents/facilities/maps/colmap.pdf
You can use this opportunity to lobby your MP. There will be a template email (sent to your registered LCAG email address) for you to send to ask them to meet you in Westminster.
We’ll be demonstrating from 11 am, you can enter Westminster and meet your MP or leave a green card (green card details here http://news.bbc.co.uk/democracylive/hi/guides/newsid_82000/82324.stm)
Details for the day
- Meet in parliament square around 10:45 am
- Get yourself kitted out for the lobbying – see an LCAG marshal (in hi-vis jackets) and grab a badge, balloon, placard, banner etc.
- We’ll be demonstrating from 11 am to catch the MPs going into Houses of Parliament (HoP)
- There will be photos taken and tweeting to be done
- If you’re meeting your MP make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get into the HoP as there’s airport-style security
- Anyone can enter the Houses of Parliament. If your MP hasn’t arranged to meet you, you can leave a Green card for them, so they know you came to see them.
- There’s a café inside Houses of Parliament and you can grab some lunch and have a chat with other members
There will be LCAG volunteer marshals in hi-vis jackets with STOP the Loan Charge badges to help and direct you throughout the day.
