The LGTU campaign called We STILL count.
The aim of the campaign is to inform as many people as possible about the proposed changes and find ways for them to reply.
You can watch the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbCIUW927ic .
The film is also on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/WeSTILLcount . Here people can post comments as a response to some of the questions in the consultation paper. We have agreed with the DCLG that comments will be submitted at the end of the consultation for them to consider as part of the response. We are also asking people to post a family selfie of them and their families in front of their accommodation to show the range of ways Gypsies and Travellers live. This is in response to the proposal to change the planning definition meaning that only people who are travelling will be counted as Gypsies and Travellers, and as needing a pitch. Please like the page for updates on the campaign, and post your comments to make your voice heard!
We have made a postcard which anyone can sign and send into the Government. Please get in touch with London Gypsy and Traveller Unit if you would like some copies.
