Lansley – next steps......

lasleyIn the last week, more than 4000 people have joined our anonymous petition to Andrew Lansley.

This is such a crucial issue. So much of the Lobbying Bill is a dangerous attack on Civil Society, but the ‘Part 3’ section is a specific attack on trade unions, and on the privacy of union members.

Will you help us make it to 5000 before 2013’s over?
