Why a protest campaign is needed
Why do we need a protest campaign to make progress on walking and cycling safety in Merseyside?

  • Walking and cycling safety is very poor in Merseyside.
  • There has been little or no improvement over recent years
  • Making polite suggestions to decision makers has not worked
  • Citizens have a moral obligation to ensure the safety of children and other vulnerable people, and this includes an obligation to insist that decision makers perform to a high standard on road safety
  • A civil disobedience campaign is therefore justified, and citizens have an obligation to protest at the neglect of duty and abuse of power, to make demands for improvements, to support civil disobedience, and to consider joining the civil disobedience campaign personally.

Thank you - we don't have meetings but we were interested to hear about your campaign - and we have now discussed this by telephone.
