About Stop NPT Prison


The Stop NPT Prison Campaign was launched in 2017.

We are a grassroots coalition of groups fighting prison expansion in our own communities and in solidarity with others.

Our intentions are to practically, economically and ethically halt prison expansion in the UK before thousands more people are harmed.

We reject the myths that prisons, surveillance and policing can solve social and economic problems. We seek alternatives that keep our communities safe and achieve real social justice.

Our primary focus has been on resisting the Prison Planned in Port Talbot, that has recently been announced and we are looking to support new groups that are fighting this prison. We do not think it is acceptable to profit from caging human beings and wish to stem the growth of the prison industrial complex in the UK.

We aim to support each other with a diversity of tactics in resisting the Ministry of Justice’s plans, while building a broader movement for prison abolition in the UK.

Please get in touch to find your nearest local group and get involved to stop prison expansion in NPT, Wales and the UK.
