I support the determination to use peaceful protest and civil disobedience to highlight the threat the Police Bill poses to the freedoms of all GRT and others.

Everyone no matter whether your traveller gypsy or in the settled community everyone has right to live how their choice fit. So stop the discrimination because EVERYONE MEANT TO BE EQUAL NO MATTER OF YOUR SEX RACE,BELIEF, CULTURE OR RELIGION. all we want is right to be able to live how we choice to live. We are human being like everyone else.

Wolfgang Douglas 9th June 2021

Thank you Jake for organising such an important drive for our way of life. Wolfgang Douglas supports the “Kill the Bill” campaign as we the Romani Gypsy community deserve a voice, deserve protection of our rights and our heritage, and I’m proud to start this path to raise awareness for such a righteous cause. God bless every single person that helps us fight for this highly important subject to get the awareness needed to secure our future in a country that we have called home longer then almost any other race that reside as citizen in this island called Great Britain... “British Gypsies are British Citizens Too”... Time to stand up for ourselves and stand together doing it. “Gypsy Lives Matter Too”. Hopefully we’ll get the support from our government we need. God bless Wolfgang Douglas x

Racism against Travellers, Gypsies and Roma is appalling and everyday. It must be challenged everywhere it is encountered, nowhere more so in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.

Angela Picknell 7th June 2021

We must make provision for people whose way of life has been to travel across generations. We don’t have to all be the same, just share basic decencies.

Jennie Formby 6th June 2021

This campaign is so important; GTR communities experience horrible racism, discrimination and attacks on their way of life every day, with the result that there are significantly fewer opportunities for their children, worse education and health care and constant pressure to 'move on' due to the appalling lack of decent sites with proper facilities. The Policing Bill in effect legitimises this discrimination and racism and it must be stopped.
