About

We are RAAAA-Ts

WHO ARE WE?

We are a decentralised network of squatters and vagabonds resisting the proposal and enforcement of the new anti-trespass measures included in the upcoming « police powers : unauthorised encampment » bill, first announced in the 2019 Tory manifesto.

POLICE CRIME SENTENCING AND COURTS BILL

The bill now called “POLICE CRIME SENTENCING AND COURTS bill” was announced by Priti Patel on Friday 12th of March 2021, even worse than expected.

The POLICE CRIME SENTENCING AND COURTS bill has passed its second reading on Tuesday the 16th of March 2021. Thanks to @sistersuncut and all protesters, the committee has been delayed until at least May 2021. After the committee, comes the House of Lords, and after that the law might pass.

WHAT DOES THAT BILL DO?

The bill will criminalise protest, violent OR non-violent for its “disruptive nature”.

The bill will criminalise the act of trespass with intent to reside. This targets primarily Travellers, and it could also have unprecedented impact on the rights of squatters, protesters, rough sleepers, ravers, ramblers, van dwellers, boaters…

OUR CALL

To fight this bill that endangers our very ways of life, we are calling for autonomous actions. We support a diversity of tactics. Let’s take action !
