Labour Party Conference Update

by Outreach ~ September 10th, 2015. Filed under: News.

We in the Conscience office have been busy securing meetings with Labour MPs for the Labour Party Conference at the end of September. We are really excited about the opportunity to discuss our Peace Tax Bill with them, and build parliamentary support for our cause.

As well as talking to as many MPs as possible, we are also looking forward to meeting with and generating support from like minded crowds at the conference’s fringe events. In particular, we are eager to attend an inter-faith gathering so that we can raise awareness of our bill among pacifist religions. All in all its shaping up to be a very busy and valuable week of lobbying, campaigning, making new contacts and building support for the right of conscientious objection to military taxation.

We are attending the conference as representatives of you, our supporters, who do not want their tax money to pay for war or preparation for war. We would therefore like to take this opportunity to invite you to offer up your suggestions, concerns, and requests for us to take with us and discuss in our meetings with MPs. Please get in contact with anything you would like us to raise, and we will include it in our agenda.

We are also searching for Brighton based volunteers to distribute flyers around the conference. If you interested in helping out, please email
