On the 30th January, a delegation of NBTA members went to show solidarity to the people affected by the Government’s Housing and Planning Bill by joining a demo against the bill. The Bill doesn’t attack bargee travellers, however due to the level of attack on other housing tenures, we believe we must show our solidarity with the people fighting it. The housing attacks range from making councils forcibly sell off council homes to making it harder to stay in traveller sites as Gypsies or travellers.

Due to our involvement in the campaign against the Bill our demand for more mooring spaces has been taken up by the campaign as well.
This kind of solidarity will see the different communities benefit and we will keep it up.
