Our Human Rights Act protects every one of us: young and old; wealthy and poor; you and your neighbour. It’s held the State to account for spying on us; safeguarded our soldiers; helped rape victims; and guarded against slavery.
Would you be happy if our most basic freedoms weren’t properly protected? Because that’s the threat we face. The Government wants to scrap our Human Rights Act – weakening everyone’s rights. We cannot let them get away with it.
