Lobby Stratford Council: Support our EU Citizens!

Stratford4Europe Steering Committee has given its full support to the motion from Labour Councillor Jason Fojtik to Stratford-on-Avon District Council demanding that (1) the Council calls on the Government to unilaterally act to legislate to guarantee that all existing acquired EU treaty rights of EU citizens and their family members in the UK should be protected after we leave the EU and (2) the Council establishes a mechanism to consult EU citizens in Stratford District (estimated 5,000) about the impact of Brexit on them, their families and their communities.

The motion is being debated at the next Council Meeting on MONDAY 17 July at 2pm at Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6HX – ACTIVISTS ARE MEETING OUTSIDE AT 1.30pm to lobby councillors – Join us!

Warwickshire Children’s Centres Consultation

With regards to Patrick’s Motion on Warwickshire Children’s Centres at our CLP meeting on July 3rd we have some more information for you that’d help greatly in combating the proposed cuts by the Conservative Warwickshire Council. If you’ve already done any of these things then that’s great, thank you!

Firstly, there is the consultation. All the information on this can be found on the Warwickshire Council Website. You can respond to this in a number of ways. Either in writing, via the questionnaire or by attending a public meeting. Basically, the more representations we have, with as many different reasons to not close the centres, the more likely it is we’ll be listened to!

Secondly, there are a number of petitions flying around. There is one being run by the Warwickshire Labour Group which can be found here. There’s also a cross party one which can be found here. We understand that a number of Children’s Centres themselves have setup their own petitions too so if you see any, we urge you to sign them as well.

Finally, there is a cross party campaign group up and running on this issue. They operate through a Facebook Group which can be found here. They can provide help and advice on how to respond to the consultation as well as many of them are mum’s and dads who take their children to the centres. This group is also out campaigning in Leamington outside the Town Hall this Saturday (8th July) at 9am so if you can find the time to come along that’d be great!

If you’d like any more information please contact Patrick Jenkins via email: patrick.jenkins97@gmail.com.
