Old Palace Yard [outside Parliament]
No justice system is truly fair unless everyone is able to fight for their rights. But through cuts to legal aid, the government has removed a cornerstone of our society, cutting all but the richest off from our courts.
Among those who rely on legal aid: innocent people who have been wrongfully jailed, homeless children who need a roof over their head, Gurkhas and other heroes who fought for our country, and victims of domestic violence.
The government’s changes to legal aid will put justice out of reach for many ordinary people
