  • Save the Human Rights Act
    The Human Rights Act is an important act designed to protect each and every individual from inequality and injustice be it from another individual, corporations or our own government. As such the decision to remove or change that protection should, ultimately should lie with the people of the UK - not politicians. In the past we've been rightly proud of our tough stance around the world on human rights. The UK will not extradite to a country where the death penalty is used. UK politicians have called for Guantanamo to be closed and laws criminalising homosexuality in Africa and elsewhere to be overturned. We accept that the Conservative party won the 2015 General Election with a majority, however a decision on something as important as this has to have the backing of the majority of the electorate, not just the 36% that voted Conservative. We are therefore asking you to do the right democratic thing and bring your proposal for a 'British Bill of Rights' before the electorate in a referendum and let them decide if they wish to opt for this, or keep the existing Human Rights legislation.

  • Save The Human Rights Act
    The Human Rights Act 1998 offers citizens of the UK many basic protections of their human rights. Under the Conservative's plans they will repeal this act. Don't just sit there whilst this Government begin to slowly strip us of protection whilst they implement their policies. Have your say! Please sign the petition, share with your friends in order to protect our basic human rights!

  • Stop the government putting the abolition of the Human Rights Act into the Queens Speech
    The individual needs protection from infringements of their human rights. Once the Act is abolished it leaves the way open for any government to ride rough-shot over them.

  • Save our Human Rights
    The act covers everyone living in the UK. The policies have been created for no reason other than to protect us as human beings. Without it any one of us could be wrongly accused of a crime, the government will be allowed to breach our privacy, and anyone could fall victim to careless decisions made by authorities. What happens to innocent until proven guilty and dignity in dying? We will ALL be affected. How can anyone oppose any of the following: Right to life Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment Right to liberty and security Freedom from slavery and forced labour Right to a fair trial No punishment without law Respect for your private and family life, home and correspondence Freedom of thought, belief and religion Freedom of expression Freedom of assembly and association Right to marry and start a family Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms Right to peaceful enjoyment of your property Right to education Right to participate in free elections
