Congratulations are in order!

Congratulations are in order to not one, but two of the founding members of We Shall Not Be Removed, who both received honours in this year’s New Years Honours list!

Andrew Miller & Jo Verrant were two of the founding group members of #WeShallNotBeRemoved campaign, and it is wonderful to see their hard work has been recognised along with the campaign itself.

Jo Verrant of Unlimited has advocated for the We Shall Not Be Removed Seven Principles in a recent interview which can be read here:

We Shall Not Be Removed as a movement is also delighted to have made it to The Stage’s Top 100 of 2020!


December 2020 Update

Here is a (slightly belated!) posting of our wonderful resident filmmaker Revell Dixon’s video update for We shall Not Be Removed activity in December.

The video includes a trailer for John Kelly’s special event, which was wonderful – to all of those who came, we really hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Video includes closed captioning and audio description, and can be viewed by clicking play on the image below. If you would prefer to watch in a separate browser window, please click the following URL:

Like many of you, we are just coming back to work now in that awkward early January fashion, so watch out for emails and updates over the next couple of weeks as we get back into gear!

Call out for #WeShallNotBeRemoved Conveners!

A call out for volunteers to join our Convener’s Steering Group!

The Conveners Steering Group is currently made up of 25 individuals who give their time voluntarily. The group meets once a month to help steer #WSNBR to achieve its objectives.

We are very keen to expand this group, particularly to any members who don’t feel that their voice is being heard or who are feeling unrepresented. We would especially welcome hearing from our Black, Asian or culturally diverse members.

We would also like to hear from any members who might want to share any good news or important information at our December Alliance meeting on Tuesday 15th December.

If this interests you or you’d like to hear more, please email:


Save the Date!

Just a quick announcement to let you know the date of our next We Shall Not Be Removed All Alliance Zoom meeting:

Tuesday 15th December


We’ll issue agendas in multiple accessible formats in advance on all our platforms.

So save the date now, and we look forward to seeing everyone in December!
