Divisive. Discriminatory. Wrong. We need YOU to join the fight against COVID passes.
We are crowdfunding to grow the greatest possible fight against domestic COVID passes - including a legal challenge as soon as necessary.
Your donations will build the biggest possible campaign to prevent domestic COVID passes. We have recruited an expert team of human rights lawyers. If COVID passes do go ahead, we will seek to use these funds to bring a legal challenge to stop COVID passes in Britain.
After months of telling the parliament and public there were "no plans" for Covid passes, we now know this was a lie.
Our common goal is to exit lockdown - healthy, safe and free. But we can't arrive at freedom through exclusion.
COVID certificates would be the first attempt at segregation in Britain for many decades, dividing communities without reducing risks.
We are in real danger of becoming checkpoint Britain where anyone from bouncers to bosses could demand to see our papers.
We cannot, and will not, let this Government create a two-tier nation of division, discrimination and injustice.
The effect of the scheme would be to create a society where the poorest, the most marginalised, and anyone who does not comply with unprecedented demands for medical interventions could be denied basic socio-economic opportunities and afforded fewer liberties than their neighbours, colleagues and fellow citizens.
The prospect of internal health passports signals a grave unbalancing of the relationship between not only citizens and the state but citizens and employers, business owners, managers, marshals, and anyone else dressed with authority.
The Government’s plans for COVID-status certificates puts Britain on the precipice of one of the greatest civil liberties battles we have faced in modern times. This is a time to stand up and take action.
To find out more about the rights risks of COVID certificates, read our new report Access Denied: the case against a two-tier Britain under COVID certification.
We recently made headlines on BBC and all major broadcasters when we brought together 70+ MPs to oppose COVID passes, threatening a Government defeat.
