What is Drive 2 Survive?
Community Action Against Institutional Racism
The Police Bill is the single biggest threat to the traditional way of life of Romany Gypsies and Irish Travellers in our lifetime. If passed, it will:
eradicate nomadic life in Britain,
give police the power to seize Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller homes,
fine Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people up to £2500, and
imprison those needing to follow a nomadic way of life because of a lack of safe legal stopping places.
Drive to Survive is a coalition of Romany Gypsy, Irish Traveller, nomadic activists, and community organisations who are determined to use peaceful protest and civil disobedience to highlight this threat to the freedoms of all people. If we join together we can make Priti Patel and Boris Johnson think again about their intention to eradicate a way of life that is many hundreds of years old.
Throughout the Summer and Autumn of 2021, we need your help to stop this racist attempt to culturally cleanse Gypsies, Roma, and Travellers from the British landscape.
