We’re living through an unprecedented public health emergency, and extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. But any measures that affect our civil liberties must be a last resort – and for as short a time a possible.
Throughout history governments have overstepped the mark in times of crisis, with hard-won rights and freedoms all too easily taken away again. We will not let this happen as we fight coronavirus in the UK.
Join Liberty’s call for Government to put human rights at the centre of its response and be part of the movement to hold it to account, ensuring it doesn’t take away our hard-won rights and freedoms.
