UK Resistance – Its Time To Organise

  • Through the utter contempt the present UK Parliament has shown to the will of the people to leave the European Union, it has made itself rogue and illegitimate.
  • The wholly biased actions of the mainstream press and media are a stain on the proud history of the United Kingdom’s traditions of free speech and objective journalism.
  • The increasingly, overbearing and thug like actions of the UK police in suppressing lawful dissent and dissenters are the culmination of Theresa May’s policies during her tenure as Home Secretary and Prime minister. Our police are becoming a political force not a policing force. Their job is increasingly to protect the government and its increasingly authoritarian methods against the people.
  • The judiciary are supposed to be independent, but this claim has to be challenged in view of the increasing number of political arrests and harassment. Court cases are being constantly put back, delaying justice, which is of itself an injustice. The probation service is being used for a post sentence form of harassment and effective secondary sentencing which has to be reviewed.

It is time to organise against these state encroachments and abuses on our civil liberties and rights. Many on behalf of the European Union. 

Because of the cost and time implications of travelling to London for most of the UK population we need to gather at other locations within the UK to protest. Wellknown and easy to get to.

To protest these and other grievances against Government we need to recognise public spaces we can go to protest in as centres of discussion and dissent. To start with here are 25 major population centres in the UK. Once central places are located they will be published here.
