4 years ago. The Home Office tried to build a new prison in our back yard.Working together, we explained why the prison proposal was not suitable for our neighbourhood. We mobilised and working together we won the fight. Plans to build a prison were dropped.Now Boris Johnson and the Ministry of Justice are having another go.They are looking for a location to put a 2,000 place prison and they think that Beam Park – on the borders of Havering and Barking and Dagenham would be a good spot.Well I know from our campaign in 2009 that local people do not want this facility. We did not want it in 2009 and we do not want it now. From past experience it is vital that we mobilise fast. Please let me know if you support my campaign by signing below.
