Campaigning in Hampstead High Street

We are the Camden & Islington chapter of the national NO2ID Campaign.

We meet at 8pm on the first Tuesday of each month to plan our work for the rest of the month.

The next meeting is on April 6th at The Kings Head. Contact our co-ordinator Kathy and find out how you can make a difference.

If you would like to help out, welcome and please subscribe to our mailing list.

Current

We are pressing Camden Council to declare that access to its services will not require registration with the national ID scheme. The majority of Camden's councillors belong to parties committed to stopping the ID scheme, so it should be possible to get Camden to join the list of councils that have taken this stand. The London Borough of Camden has long been part of the Labour heartland. Its refusal to cooperate with this major government project will be a notable nail in the scheme's coffin.
