Welcome To Stop The Strip Pub

Hello and welcome to the website/blog for the Stop The Strip Pub campaign. This is the movement to prevent Satchmo's on Stoke Newington Road (North London) being granted a license to put on strip shows.

On Tuesday 6th May Hackney Council rejected Satchmo's application for a Sex Encounters Establishment license. 

On 8th March  a group of nearly 100 local residents met outside Satchmo's to protest Satchmo's application.

On 11th April Hackney Council announced that they had received 525 written letters of objection - a new record for the borough.

People power gives lap dancers the elbow...

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a bar, Satchmo's, near me that was applying for a licence for lap-dancing.

The pub is in a residential area and all kinds of local people were against it for all kinds of reasons.

Well, the good news is that the council refused it a licence. Protesting works sometimes. Just do it!
