National Day of Action on Saturday 5 December
5 December 2020 @ 08:00 - 17:00 GMT
On Saturday 5 December we will be holding safe outdoor protests to send a message to Boris Johnson and the UK Government:
The best Xmas present would be a Zero Covid Strategy
We don’t want to return to a failed three-tier system when an alternative exists to protect lives and livelihoods – Zero Covid
You can sign up for the campaign in order to find out what’s happening in your area and to join in on social media in pushing our hashtag #ZeroCovid. If you have an idea for an action please register it through the button below and we can help make it happen!
11am, 100 Victoria Street, SW1E 5JL
An effective Test and Trace system, extended to support those isolating, is at the heart of the #ZeroCovid strategy. It’s how we break the cycle of restrictions. Yet the Test and Trace system overseen by ex TalkTalk boss Dido Harding and outsourced in large part to private sector firms such as Serco has cost £22bn so far and is a total failure.
We call on the Government to replace the discredited private test and trace system with one based locally: on council, NHS and public health structures, recruiting contact tracers locally and introducing backwards tracing to find sources of infection.
Our risk assessment has been accepted by Westminster Council and can be viewed here. We ask all participants to read it before attending. In particular:
- If you have any symptoms please don’t attend and get a test.
- We ask that a 2m physical distance is maintained.
- Bring your own placards and don’t share them with others.
11am, Peter Bone MP’s office, 42 Midland Road, NN8 1LU
