NGOs stand together for the Human Rights Act on International Human Rights Day

The British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) has brought together a group of leading organisations, including Voice4Change England, representing many sectors of civil society to call on political party leaders to protect the Human Rights Act.

In an open letter to the political party leaders, to mark international Human Rights Day on 10 December, 43 organisations have collectively come together to speak with one voice to express disappointment that the Human Rights Act is all too often vilified, and to call for leadership from our political leaders on the Human Rights Act.

The signatory organisations remind the party leaders that the Human Rights Act protects us all from violence, abuse and neglect, and enshrines our liberty, free speech and right to protest in UK law. In essence it ensures all people are treated with basic dignity and respect.
