Justice Alliance petition – Joanna Lumley joins fight for Legal Aid

Actress and justice campaigner Joanna Lumley has joined her voice to the rising chorus of concern about the catastrophic changes to Legal Aid. She adds her name, forever associated with the legally aided fight for the rights of Gurkhas (not to mention Ab Fab, James Bond and the New Avengers), to the excellent Justice Alliance’s new petition which has had thousands of signatures in only a few hours.

Joanna Lumley Justice Alliance

The Justice Alliance was behind the Postcards for Justice initiative and has been extremely effective in harnessing the fierce opposition to the ongoing attacks on Legal Aid.

This is an incredibly important issue, and if you have not signed today’s petition please do so now. This is a battle that can be won, and one that is too important to lose:
