Protect our right to protest

By Forster Communications

14 December 2021

We were founded with the sole purpose of using the power of communications to protect and improve lives, and over the last 25 years had the privilege of working with, been inspired by and supported activists using their voice and making noise.

From our work with The Body Shop Founder Anita Roddick to the recent #NeverMoreNeeded campaign in support of charities, campaigning and protest has shaped the world we live in today.

But it is under threat.

The Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill poses a serious risk to democracy, with the potential of 51 weeks in prison for simply attending a protest deemed ‘noisy’ or disruptive. We’ve seen the power of what protest can achieve are we are speaking out to protect this critical right.

Forster calls on the Lords to read the Bill in full and address its greatest risks. We also encourage other purposeful businesses to take a stand. The window of time to act is very short.
