Political action

Members of the Earthsharing Devon network have:

  • Lobbied MPs about current land issues (e.g. reform of the Non-Domestic (Business) Rates;  taxing land rather than consumption, profits or earnings as it can’t be hidden in offshore tax havens).
  • Supported each other to stand in and canvass in local and parliamentary elections.
  • Submitted evidence to parliamentary inquiries.
  • Participated in the local Occupy movement.

We would like to encourage people to do more together in this arena.  Do contact us if you want support over some issue or to let us know what you are doing.
