This is the Reclaim Rosslyn Road webpage - we are a group of local residents concerned about the harrassment and intimidation of clients and staff at the BPAS Clinic that we see on our doorstep every day.
Please note - there are two things you can do RIGHT NOW to help!!
- Sign the 2018 petition. The council are aware of the 2014 petition that received 348 signatures but now insist that petitions are hosted on their website. This is annoying as you need to have a Richmond Account to prove you live or work in the Borough. Sign Here.
- The Home Office are running a national consultation on the impact of protestors at abortion clinics. BPAS have created a simple form to complete which will send your information to the Home Office. Please take a moment to complete the form even if you only have one incident to report. BPAS form Here.
*** 23 Jan '18 UPDATE ***
Following a campaign in Ealing, the group SisterSupporter successfully secured the first Council Motion to investigate the use of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) as a legislative tool to create a "buffer zone" around the Marie Stopes Clinic on Mattock Lane.
Several Councils around the country have now voted to explore all legal options, including PSPOs, to prevent protestors from harrassing women at clinic gates.
At the January 23rd 2018 LBRuT* Council Meeting, Cllr Mark Boyles gave his "absolute commitment" to doing everything possible to create a Buffer Zone for the Rosslyn Road Clinic.
We want to Reclaim Rosslyn Road, while respecting the protesters' right to express their views. If you support us, please let us know your email address here so we can keep you up to date.
