"Grayling Must Go: Legal Aid Must Stay"

Thousands of lawyers struck on Friday against the government's devastating cuts to the justice system.

Demonstrations took place in cities across the country against the government's plans to slash funding for criminal cases, reduce the number of people eligible for legal aid, and prevent oversight of government action by restricting judicial review.

Haldane members took a prominent role in organising the demonstrations and strikes.

The Haldane Society is now calling for a protracted campaign of strike days involving the withdrawal of our services from the criminal justice system until the government abandons their plans.
