Petition

You too can sign up to the position statement.

Humanists UK, one of the signatories and co-organiser of this statement, has launched a petition calling for the UK Government to drop plans to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and restrict access or undermine current powers of judicial review.

Any restrictions on the independence of our judiciary, on our human rights laws, or on the right to judicial review could represent a devastating blow to everyone’s ability to guarantee their rights and freedoms against the state. That’s why in February 2020, 29 charities and other human rights-interested groups and individuals joined together in writing an open letter on the need to protect human rights and judicial review and over 50 organisations and individuals support this statement today.
