The Tories did not win an outright majority on June 8th. Now, to cling to power, Theresa May is looking for support from the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
Many in the DUP have extreme socially conservative views and have campaigined against:
- Same-sex marriage
- LGBT rights in Northern Ireland
- Women's abortion rights.
Senior figures in the hardline religious right-wing party are climate change deniers and others want to see creationism taught in science lessons in our schools.
These people are due to be given roles in our government if Theresa May gets her way. These people do not represent us. We are petitioning our Tory MP in Romford, demanding that he speaks up against this coalition of chaos that Theresa May wants to form.
Please sign to make our voice louder and tell the Tories that this coalition is not in our name!
