  1. Petition calling for the dropping of charges of aggravated tresspass against Ukuncut members

    On March 26th 138 UKuncut activists were charged with aggravated tresspass after staging an entirely peaceful protest in Fortnum & Mason. At the very least this has huge significance for the future of peaceful direct action and at it's worst is political policing. UKuncut has played a prominent role in bringing corporate tax avoidance into mainstream political debate and has embarressed the government as well as the powerful corporations they've targeted. The arrest of UKuncut members is an attempt to associate them with the "violence" that occured and to vilify the group in the minds of the general public, and…

    • A Campaign for an English Parliament - Political Equality for England

      Political Equality for England. Which would allow people in England a far greater democratic involvement in English politics, and allow for a far greater and more direct accountability by MPs to people in England.

      Scotland has its own Parliament, Wales has its own National Assembly, Northern Ireland its own Parliament/Assembly. ...Yet England doesn't have its own Parliament that deals with matters specific to England.

      This would stop Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish MPs voting on English only matters. English MPs are not allowed to vote on matters specific to these other countries.

      • Reject Marischal Square Development, Aberdeen

        Aberdeen City Council, in association with Muse Developments and Aviva Investors, have duped the public in a sham public consultation for a new development in Aberdeen. It is opposite the most beautiful, largest granite building in the world, Marischal College. (Alhambra is the largest, but Marischal College is a stunning building.) The Council entered into a very risky financial contract, which includes a potential breach of State Aid regulations - public money to underwrite private profit. Thousands of protestors have taken part in a emailing campaign and protested on the streets.
        A motion by the council opposition was defeated in…

        • CCTV to be made compulsory in UK slaughterhouses.

          Following Animal Aid's detailed investigation into UK slaughterhouses, the campaigning group is calling for mandatory CCTV to be installed in all abattoirs. This must be made law ahead of January 2013 when new Regulations - which will not allow the UK to improve upon existing measures - come into force. Already, the supermarkets are on board. Now we just need to persuade the government!

          • UK manufacture of Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors. Cheapest, greenest way to meet carbon targets.

            Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTRs) are hundreds of times safer than the Pressurised Water Reactors (PWRs) planned for the UK's new-build. LFTRs operate at atmospheric pressure; PWRs operate at 155 times that and have this huge pressure 'driver' to expel radioactivity into the environment. LFTRs are half the price of PWRs and require only one-thousandth of the ore to be mined for the same energy output and thorium will be available for hundreds of thousands of years. High quality waste heat can be used for district heating or desalinating water. If only used for process heat, hydrogen can be made,…

            • Vote Yes! to Fairer Votes

              It's three months until the UK's first ever referendum on electoral reform. We will finally get the chance to vote to take back some of the power that political parties have stolen from us. 38 Degrees members should be encouraged to get out and help with the campaign for a Yes vote.
              Switching to the Alternative Vote system, would make MPs more accountable, requiring that they have a genuine majority to be elected. It would give everyone an equal say, as the option to specify an order of preference will mean your vote will always be counted. And it will…

              • english parliament

                England is continually disadvantaged by the current political arangement inside the UK. English people lose out in Health, transport, education and many other spheres because there is no English parliament. English MPs do not speak for England, they represent the views of the British Union. Demand equality with the other countries in Britain and campaign for an English parliament now.

                  Why is it that Cameron is allowed to push for No2AV when it was a similar AV system system that got him elected as Tory Leader? If it had been First Past the Post David Davis would now be Prime Minister.

                  • Fairness over political party air time at elections

                    Ofcom has just announced it is giving UKIP "major party" status in the run up to the 2014 elections. Green party members are particularly upset about this, but the real question is who sets the rules and what are they? At the moment there seem to be none. Ofcom makes up a new set of criteria just before each election, when it can see which way the polls are running. The result is different rules for every election. There should be a set formula which applies all the time, be it number of MPs, councillors, or MEPs or number of…

                        • Bring about a return of 'Innocent Until Proven Guilty' to the British Legal System.

                          Most people still believe that one has to be considered 'innocent until proven guilty' in any criminal legal proceedings, but this is no longer true in practice. The Government would argue otherwise but this is only because they have redefined the word "prove".

                          The fact is that if somebody makes a false allegation against you, the Government consider that false allegation to be "proof" and you can be convicted solely on that person's word; all the prosecution have to do is make the jury choose to believe your accuser rather than yourself. "Proof beyond reasonable doubt" has now turned into…

                          • Lobby Lib Dems, at every Level of the Party, to Pass a Vote of No Confidence in Nick Clegg

                            Nick Clegg has betrayed nearly every core principle of the Liberal Democrat 2010 manifesto in exchange for a government role and influence within the Coalition. The only way for the Lib Dems to remain a viable political party is to pass a vote of ‘no confidence’ in Nick Clegg and vote for a new leader who will, at most, support Cameron on a supply and demand basis. Currently polling at 10% and facing disproportionate losses from the Tory plans to count the number of registered voters, rather than the number of constituents, the Lib Dems must prove that they believe…

                                Despite promises from the 3 major political parties the people of this country have never been given a fair vote with regard to our position within the European Union. Polls on the subject show that about 80% of the population want a free trade agreement but no interference with our domestic politics. It is time for a proper democratic descision to be made.

                                  May Day is an ancient British festival around since pagan times and is one of our few traditions left relatively intact. It has become associated with the working class and is now threatened by a government that wants to move it to October and reclassify it as a UK celebration day of some sort. This is a disgrace. For centuries governments have tried to repress this festival, let us not be the generation that lets it happen.

This is a brilliant oppertunity for 38 Degrees to show their support for Evidence Based Drug Policy over our current policy which is driven by lobbying from industries that stand to lose profits from Evidence Based Drug Policy (e.g. Pharmaceutical, Alcohol, Commercial nightclub chains, Entertainment ).

                                    • Petition the Queen to dissolve parliament for a General Election. No confidence in coalition

                                      The Tory-led coalition government has acted upon numerous policies that were in neither the Tory or Lib Dem 2010 election manifestos. These legislative changes therefore have no democratic mandate for implementation and could arguably represent a Coup d'état. On that basis, and in accordance with a Royal Prerogative, we request that the Queen dissolve parliament and call for a General Election as soon as possible.

                                      • Freedom of Information requests must remain free!

                                        Today's news that the Tory-led coalition is considering intriducing a charge for Freedom of Information requests is bad news indeed, though not surprising. Transparency is antithetic to the nepotic way Tories like to govern. It's this same mindset that drives their resistance to the legislation on having a register of lobbyists.

                                        http://www.labour.org.uk/government-looking-at-foi-charges-alarming,2012-02-14

                                        We must resist this retrograde step. FoI must be strengthened, day on day, week on week - we must fight for its continued existence and to keep it free.

                                        • Prevent Margaret Thacher from having a state funeral

                                          There is a proposal to give Margaret Thatcher a state funeral, when even Winston Churchill didn't get one. And it will be at the tax payers expense. Given the misery many thousands of people experienced under the Thacher Administration, I think we are in danger of having history re-written. Please can we campaign against it.
