How to apply pressure to government

Write your post here.We need to all pull together as this problem is huge (see Lord Stern speaks - on this site).  Leafleting on street corners is great but not enough - we must support government and give them confidence to take decisive action.

There will be a few speakers (mostly children) and the communies that will be demonstrating different aspects of the campaign are:
