Publicly show Michael Gove that you don’t want to lose your human rights – fund and sign an advert to save the HRA in The Times

We could use an update at this juncture. I appreciate you may be in negotiations to try and secure the double page ad with the slight shortfall, but in the interim, a little note to say when the advert is likely to appear (single or double), would be of great reassurance. Thanks
This needs supporting, scrapping of the act along side the introduction of the data communications act can only mean dark days ahead - hop, skip and jump to the totalitarian police state. We need act now before it is too late
@hilary-gray Hi Hilary, your details don't get sold on - the only people who have access to them are Amnesty UK and crowdfunder website. I can pass your complaint on to them, though. We thoroughly review the data processes of all third parties we work with, so rest assured we made sure that crowdfunder meets our strict data criteria before we hosted a project on their site. Thanks for pledging, much appreciated!
Recomend two books to the world, by same author. George Orwells 'Animal Farm' and '1984.' Have to say I never expected a British Government - the mother of Parliaments - to ever entertain such an idea. Next step - they introduce measures to 'regulate' internet access. All for the good of the country of course.
Taking out adverts in right-leaning newspapers is perhaps a more middle-class form of protest than we can expect to see if we fail to preserve and respect basic, universal human rights. A Britain that turns its back on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the consequent International Bill of Human Rights would be a shame and an embarrassment upon us all, an admission that Britons are less "human" and should have lesser rights than the citizens of the other 192 member states of the United Nations.
This is one of the most important policy struggles we have had to challenge our government over. We must, each of us, do all we can. Amnesty may you be a beacon or the many! I trust the ad will be informatively written and situated sensibly enough that readers of the Telegraph and Times will not be able to help but see it, feeling obliged to stop and consider. Good luck :-)
@numberland, thanks for contributing. We completely understand that some people might find £10 high, but we've had to balance the minimum pledge against the number of names we can physically fit on the adverts.
