Go forth and sin some more

Sound advice, wouldn't you agree?! Our popular Blessed print is back in stock, in a new limited edition colourway - teal and fluorescent pink. Combining lines from queer activist Mark Aguhar's poem Litanies to my Heavenly Brown Body with tenets and slogans from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, this divine hand pulled screen print celebrates diversity and encourages acceptance for all.

News

The Not So Magnificent Seven

As world leaders gathered in Cornwall for the annual Group of Seven (G7) summit, Extinction Rebellion activists from across the globe gathered for the G7 Rebellion - a week-long festival of action targeting the G7 summit and demanding an end to the era of empty promises and disdain for the global south. Three days of flotillas, theatrics, and last-ditch blockades in Cornwall followed a wave of pre-summit protests along the UK coastline, as well as coasts across Europe and Asia. Read more »

Have Your Say

Nominate a Young Hero

There's still one week left for you to nominate someone for the 2021 Bristol Young Hero Awards. With 11 different categories, the awards aim to shine a light on those who have overcome difficult circumstances, made a difference to the lives of others, or achieved something extraordinary. Nomination deadline: 30 June.

Amend PCSC Bill to withdraw power to seize vehicles used as mobile homes

An estimated 60,000+ people are living off-grid in accommodation such as vans, cars, buses, lorries or other mobile shelters in the UK. The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts (PCSC) Bill should be amended to remove the power for police to seize their vehicles.

These people tend to group together for security and companionship, but their occupation of land is due to the housing and job shortage - it does not amount to creating a protest site. "Van dwellers" are distinct from "travellers" which is a category with special protection under human rights legislation, nor are they "protesters", whose activities are the main focus of Sections 3 and 4 of the PCSC Bill. The Bill creates a new offence targeting individuals who "reside on land without consent of the occupier of the land; have, or intend to have, at least one vehicle with them on the land...and "confers power on a constable to seize their vehicle/other property for up to 3 months...".
