Europe and digital rights MEP hustings

Join ORG Manchester to hear from the MEP candidates for the North West, as we quiz them on their views on digital rights.

In the run-up to the European elections (22nd May), Open Rights Group are holding MEP hustings across the country, to ask candidates to pledge to protect digital rights.

The pledge will be tied into the WePromise 10 point charter.

MEPs help write laws on digital privacy, commerce, free speech online, copyright and net neutrality: most of the big digital issues are affected by European rules.

Candidates speaking

• Afzal Khan - Labour

• Jack Allnutt - Pirate Party

• Chris Whiteside - Conservative

• Lee Slaughter - UKIP

Laura Bannister - Green

If you wish to attend but not respond on MeetUp, please email [masked] to reserve places.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
