Check out the latest change.org update:

Keep on plugging for P.R., especially now when FPTP is so glaringly inadequate. https://www.change.org/p/make-this-the-last-general-election-to-use-our-broken-voting-system/u/24418118?cs_tk=Ai4axtrdkbTkAgFhtFwAAXicyyvNyQEABF8BvP2_5ihqTmA7m5nKdYvmm-w%3D&utm_campaign=37948e1aa4f4415d9bae202484f933a4&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_term=cs

Three main asks:

1. Sign the petition! https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/245488

2. Share it on Facebook, Twitter and by email.

3. Think of three friends who might be interested in signing the petition. Go and have a chat with them about PR, maybe over a cup of tea. We need to get the nation talking about how we save our democracy!

CHANGE.ORG

Sign the Parliamentary Petition for PR – now on almost 40,000 signatures!

Amid the current political chaos, a new petition for Proportional Representation (PR) has surged to 40,000 signatures on the official Parliament petitions site. If the petition reaches 100,000 signatures, it will be debated by MPs in Parliament. Sign it here: petition.parliament.uk/petitions/245488….

Finally,  I regret that I have done little towards updating the EcoChi link (Sorry).  Hopefully, it is still a useful reference for future events: Ctrl + F produces a search box if you want something particular.   Please reply to this email with anything you'd like included for future EcoChi email / Calendar?
With very best wishes,
Philip
