Apologies for possible duplication but I have only just seen this.

There's already a thread (started in AIBU but got shifted to Petitions by MNHQ) - but no harm in having two as the one in Petitions now keeps dropping out of active threads.

I think there's 3 or 4 threads now, actually!

I was just looking at threads I’m on, forgot about this. It did get shifted to petitions eventually.

Could ask one of the woman’srights group to post it out on twitter

Hi there everyone,

We're moving this over to petitions now.

Not sure if this comes up in active but bumping anyway

I am really surprised this has not been more supported. When they have blocked concerns from MPs, it is vital that we find a way to ask these questions on behalf of those who are most vulnerable in our society.

I guess people are worried about linking to this on their other SM platforms - even though it's merely asking for a review of rules which are demonstrably not fit for purpose. I don't use any other than MN, unfortunately.

If there's any relevant news stories where it could be mentioned in comments that would help.

I have retweeted it a few times hoping to push it forwards. That is a good idea re including it in some other threads.

I was thinking more of comments on The Times etc if there are any relevant stories. For MN threads, (for some reason I don't quite understand), a direct link to a petition is only allowed under this Petitions and Activism topic, and if you include such a link the whole thread may get moved. It might be ok to link to this thread, I'm not sure.
