Save our Human Rights Act!

Posted on Wednesday, September 7th, 2022

* * * UPDATE 8 September 2022 * * *

The government has now shelved plans to replace the Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights. Whilst we are pleased that the immediate threat to our rights has passed, we are fear that the reprieve may only be temporary as new ministers explore other ways to achieve similar aims.

For an account of this dramatic development read Government scraps human rights reform hours after Jewish charity’s warning in Jewish News (7 September 2022)

Our Human Rights Act is under threat.  The government wants to replace it with a weaker Bill of Rights. 

We are asking for your support for our campaign to save the Human Rights Act.

The Bill of Rights will reduce our basic rights including to freedom of religion. 

So we are asking MPs to vote against the Bill of Rights.  René Cassin’s briefing provides more details

Please send this letter to your MP as soon as possible and before Monday 12 September when the Bill of Rights has its second reading in the House of Commons.(find your MP here).

Please let us know when you have taken this action, and of any response from your MP

Thank you for supporting this campaign!
