NBTA TO SPEAK AT PEOPLE’S FLOTILLA RALLY, MILTON KEYNES, THIS SATURDAY 7TH JUNE
The NBTA is sending a speaker to the People’s Flotilla Against Austerity rally at Pear Tree Bridge, Milton Keynes, MK6 3PE on Saturday 7th June 2014. Join us with the NBTA banner at 2pm to 4pm. After the rally we plan to hand in the 5000+ signature petition calling on Canal & River Trust to stop evicting disabled, elderly and vulnerable boat dwellers. The petition was started by a member of the NBTA in January. Join us at 4pm to walk to the CRT head office at Station House, 500 Elder Gate, Milton Keynes MK9 1BB to hand it in or meet us there at 4.45pm.
The petition is here
