Youth Group Action: Human Rights Act, Week of Action
The Government is committed to scrapping the Human Rights Act (HRA) and replacing it with a British Bill of Rights. They announced in the Queen’s speech last May that they would consult on this proposal. We don't yet know when the government will bring out the consultation. Secretary of State for Justice, Michael Gove, recently said in parliament it would come "soon" but we have been expecting it since last May! We are preparing for the government’s consultation to come at any time, making sure we keep up momentum to Save the Act while we wait.
So we're asking you all to be involved in a week of action for the HRA in April, from 9 to 16 April.
