Petition Tag - bankruptcies
The Forum for Stable Currencies has been meeting at the House of Lords and Commons since 1998. We extensively covered monetary causes and their effects, especially relating to national or public debts. Challenging the Recession, our Chairman Austin Mitchell MP tabled ten Early Day Motions (EDMs), which nearly 80 MPs signed. His latest one is EDM 597 on the Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694.
We always also welcomed victims of our financial, legal and judiciary system, whose grievances are extremely painful to listen to. In April 2009 we recorded some stories for the first time on video and later published a few cases here. More stories were recorded at our meetings in June 2009 and on March 9, 2010.
We'd like to see changes on three levels:
1. the Bank of England Act 1694 which prevents the corporation from trading; if it were complied with, the effects of the National Debt would be far less disastrous
2. self-regulation of the financial and legal professions which does not seem to be sufficiently effective
3. the compensation of victims of white collar crimes in financial and judiciary institutions who have nowhere to go.
This petition focusses on getting justice for victims, by following the recommendation of EDM 1297 to tackle the serious oppression of Their Majesties' subjects that the writers of the Bank of England Act wanted to avoid in 1694. They even foresaw a punishment in case of trespassing!
If you have five minutes, please get your MP to sign one of our relevant Early Day Motions.
If you have one minute, please consider signing our petition below - also without displaying your name, if you like.
When we had 331 signatures, I sent this letter to HM The Queen. The most interesting comments from signatories are being updated all the time. I now send them to 'high places' as and when appropriate.

Our last meetings were recorded in the Grand Committee Room and in Room 14 and led to Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694. Since then, videos of meetings have been grouped into this vimeo album.
