What We Stand For

Save Our Rights aims to ensure Human Rights are upheld – no matter what.

We believe that the Government does not give us our rights, as they are ours from birth and inalienable. Instead, the role of Government is to protect our inalienable rights from interference.

Yet the reality is that, the biggest threat to our Human Rights at this time, often comes from the Government itself.

Our focus for the upcoming couple of years Save Our Rights will be focusing on six main areas: cost of living crisis, Human Rights Act Reform, These areas are not an exhaustive list of all issues that need to be tackled, yet we recognise it is better to focus our attention on a select few so we can give them the time and energy needed to make our campaigns a success. We are grateful to those taking up the mantle on those other issues that lie outside the scope we have chosen to focus on.

Cost of Living Crisis

This is an issue that affects us all and is one that is only going to get worse. Everyone has a right to be able to be warm and fed yet the Government is allowing policies that force people to choose.

Article 3 of the Human Rights Act enshrines the Right to live with dignity and free from cruel and inhumane treatment. There is no excuse for the Government to not intervene to prevent people living in abject poverty, it is a political choice and a Human Rights abuse. 

Help prevent this suffering by joining our Heat and Eat campaign, which offers real solutions to this problem.

Human Rights Act Reform

Central to maintaining and protecting our human rights is the Human Rights Act 1998. This enshrines these rights into laws and offers mechanisms to hold people and organisations to account if they are not upheld. 

Yet the whole act is under threat. The Government is proposing to scrap it and replace it with a Bill of Rights.

While it could be argued that a reform is needed to ensure our rights are upheld fully, what was proposed in the consultation document did nothing but weaken and dilute our human rights with no recourse. This could be hugely problematic so we will be taking action when it comes to the House later in the year.

Online Harms Bill

This is a Bill which is being proposed with the idealised version protecting people, especially children from extreme content on the internet. While that may seem admirable and the depths of the internet need purging and clearing this Bill adds in some very concerning measures. 

Measures that could see people criminalised for exercising their free speech. What you’re allowed to talk about and the opinions you are allowed to express could easily become regulated. This will be coming to the House later in the year and we will be running an awareness campaign to uphold our Right to Free Speech when it does.

Medical Freedom

We have seen our Medical Freedom come under threat in a number of different ways over the last couple of years. 

Firstly through mandated tests and vaccines for various cohorts of people. While we are glad that this has mostly now ended, we still believe new legislation needs to be passed so that it can never happen again.

Secondly through the Health and Care Act 2022 which passed legislation to allow the Secretary of State to fluoridate the whole of the English and Welsh water supply.

However due to pushback they currently have a consultation open, so take action now, to ensure we have medicine free water to drink.

Secondly through the Health and Care Bill which is looking to pass legislation which would allow the Secretary of State to fluoridate the English and Welsh water supply. This cannot happen in Scotland because in xxx it was ruled that fluoride was a medicinal product therefore it had to be dispensed by a licensed professional and with full informed consent.

Cash

The nation is currently walking into a cashless society and for many the changes have been subtle so have gone unnoticed. Yet many people are being discriminated against for wanting to use cash, despite the fact that 1.9m people actually use it for the majority of their transactions.

Options of payment is always a good thing, but the key word is options. If the option of cash is taken away then we are being forced into a situation that we may not consent to. Furthermore the Government and the Banks are renowned for not respecting data privacy therefore if we did lose cash we could not guarantee our Right to a Private life wound be upheld.

Democracy

Here in the UK we are sold the notion that we live in a democratic society however we, here at Save Our Rights, do not believe this to be the case. We believe we have one election every 5 years and then ultimately we live under a dictatorship where our voices, as individuals and collectives, are ignored. 

We have a right to live in a democratic society, to have a voice, to have a say in how our nation is run. This political system was made by rich and powerful people, to keep the rich and powerful, rich and powerful. We believe that the current system is not fit for purpose.
