Calls to boycott nightclubs in towns and cities across the UK are being made between 25 October and 4 November following a recent increase in drink and injected spiking in clubs, under the banner of “Girls Night In”.
Girls Night In groups have formed in over 30 locations so far, with each specifying boycott dates, and are predominantly being coordinated via Instagram.
They are making a range of demands, for more thorough searches on entry, improved training for nightclub staff, anti-spiking devices to be made available, and increased CCTV in bars.
Please find out if #girlsnightin boycotts have been called near you, and join any actions that have been called alongside these in support.
An associated petition to Parliament demanding that in law it is made a “requirement for nightclubs to thoroughly search guests on entry” had passed 168,000 signatures on 26 October.
