The Stop the Scan campaign, in collaboration with Black Protest Legal Support,  are launching new Know Your Rights flyers for Stop and Scan. 

Black Protest Legal Support UK have supported The Racial Justice Network with the flyers and added contacts of solicitors offering *free 24 hour legal advice*.  Thank you to Northern Police Monitoring Project for producing the original flyers.

Finally, we would like to thank all those who reached out through Yorkshire Resists (@YorksResist) to translate the flyers into multiple languages. This was the result of collective community action and this is the backbone of the work we do. 

Help us spread the word!

Step One: Download flyers and translations on our Google Drive

Step Two: Order physical copies to distribute in your communities using our order form in the Google drive. In the form there are also instructions on how to print our print-at-home and printing office versions.

The new flyers include:

  • A new acronym to help people remember the steps they can take to #StayWISE
  • Contacts of solicitors offering *free 24 hour legal advice*
  • Translations into multiple languages
  • Updated advice and graphics

The handheld fingerprint scanners bring the police station to the streets and turn police into a mobile border force.  As intrusive, racist policing practices merge with the Hostile Environment, we hope this community resource will help people to know their rights, help us to help each other and seek legal support for the rights that are owed across borders.
