Mick Jagger - Jagger Backs Sound Off For Justice London Taxi Cab Campaign

Mick Jagger's ex-wife Bianca Jagger is spearheading a new campaign to turn London taxi cabs into moving hi-tech booths for Brits to sound off about legal aid cuts.
Three taxis have been fitted with Apple iPads and iPhones, and passengers touring around central London this week (beg16May11) are invited to offer their opinions about the cuts - as part of a Sound Off For Justice campaign initiative.
Longtime human rights activist Jagger has offered her full support to the idea, alongside stars including actress Joanna Lumley.
She says, "What is the purpose of having rights if you can't enforce the law? Legal Aid gives ordinary people access to legal protection (and) this access is in danger of being jeopardised.
"Some of the most important breakthroughs in law have taken place with the help of Legal Aid. Rights to work, the right not to be exploited, rights to housing, the right not to be discriminated against, and the right to speak out in the face of medical negligence has all been possible through the use of Legal Aid.
"I support Sound Off For Justice to protect these rights and maintain access to justice."
The Sound Off For Justice taxis begin their tour of duty at 8am on Monday (16May11).
