Magna Carta Day Protest - #iamforjustice #jelfie


Magna Carta image On Monday 16th June 2014, HCLC's Chair, staff, interns, board members and patrons took part in the Justice Alliance Campaign's Magna Carta day protest against the Justice Secretary Chris Grayling's legal aid "reforms".


June 15th marked the 799th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta Charter and so to raise awareness of the current threat to the UK's rule of law - as a result of the cuts to legal aid - hundreds of justice alliance supporters from across the country took to twitter to tweet their protest “justice selfies” or “jelfies” (a picture of yourself with a sign saying you are for justice).
