Three days ago we posted a blog piece which included links outlining the dangers of parliament ratifying the Istanbul Convention, the innocuous-sounding ‘Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence’.
Our thanks to Douglas at antimisandry.com for the following:
Suddenly, the matter of the Istanbul Convention has come to an urgent point.
I have just discovered that this coming Friday, 16th December, a private members’ bill is going into second reading to enact the Istanbul Convention. Details here.
It is important that your MP knows to vote against this bill. Your MP can’t be expected to be informed about everything and an innocuous and helpful-sounding bill like “Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Ratification of Convention) Bill 2016-17” is something few would object to unless informed.
The DAY AFTER TOMORROW your MP might vote for this, or fail to vote against it. Your earnest appeal to them not to be fooled by the pretty words and title and to vote DOWN this bill might be all that is needed to stop it.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
