Call out in solidarity for local democracy in Barnet 30 July 2019
On Tuesday 30 July 2019, 7pm in Hendon Town Hall, Barnet Council will vote on a proposal that in will restrict Barnet residents’ ability to ask questions and speak at future Council Committee meetings.
The London Borough of Barnet has a wealth of community activism which includes Barnet Bloggers (Mr Reasonable, Mrs Angry, Mr Mustard and Barnet Eye) and Barnet Alliance for Public Services (BAPS) to name just a few.
Their contributions over the last decade have largely been supportive of the services our members provide.
However, their contribution to future committees will virtually cease if the proposed rule change is passed at Full Council on 30 July 2019.
Barnet residents have responded by setting up a petition entitled “Stop Barnet Council From Gagging Residents”
