The government is trying to push through a Bill that would stop much of Friends of the Earth's work on our most important campaigns.

The Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill is a complex piece of legislation, but its repercussions for us are very simple. If passed in its current form, it could shut down most of Friends of the Earth's work for a whole year from May next year.
