ACTION DIARY

Diaries of Despair Day of Action II - 20th September 2003

On this day (the 3rd anniversary of the original publication of the historic Diaries of Despair Report) there were over 50 actions all across the UK.

Dozens of people visited their MPs in their constituency surgeries to urge them to sign Early Day Motion (EDM) 1340 'Uncaged Campaigns', calling for an Independent Judicial Inquiry into the Diaries of Despair scandal. At the last count 153 MPs have now signed EDM 1340.

Protests took place at the Home Office in London, and in Camberley in Surrey, home of Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd.

Dozens of town centre information stalls took place in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to educate the public about the scandal, distribute postcards to be sent to the Prime Minister, and raise vital campaign funds.

Many people had letter-writing blitzes to MPs, influential politicians and political bodies, and newspapers.

More details and photographs will appear here shortly - watch this space!


All of these actions can - and should - take place on an ongoing basis. Click here for details of how you can get involved.
