Protect our Human Rights Act

The Human Rights Act brings home fundamental, universal rights we all have as human beings, and allows us to challenge authorities if they violate them.

If you’re lucky you won’t ever need to use it in a court. But it’s protecting you all the same. It’s an invisible safety net for all of us, working quietly to ensure our rights are respected, and a crucial means of defence for the most vulnerable.

Right now this vital protection is at risk. Attacked by some politicians, misreported by parts of the press and misunderstood by many – it’s time to spread the message that human rights matter.
