Cambridge Hustings: Human Rights, Equality & Refugees

Local campaign groups have joined forces to hold election candidates’ debate on human rights, equality & refugees.

This is a great opportunity to ask the candidates what their proposals for human rights and digital rights under Brexit are, and also to ensure that issues around surveillance, privacy and censorship are included in the debate. Questions to ask the candidates: 

• Will you commit to staying in the European Convention on Human Rights?

• With the passing of the Investigatory Powers Act last year, what is your opinion on the level of surveillance in the UK?

• Will you protect digital rights after Brexit?

• Will you commit to guaranteeing data protection rights that have been secured through the General Data Protection Regulation?

This event is free and open to the public so bring friends or family along who might be interested. You do need to book in advance. 

Find out more information about the hustings here:

The organising groups are: Cambridge Refugee Resettlement Campaign, Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group, Cambridge Stand Up To Racism, Amnesty International Cambridge City Group and Cambridgeshire HOPE not hate.

    Hi everyone,

    If you went to the General Election Hustings in Cambridge last night, and managed to get a question asked about digital rights then please do let me know!

    All the best,

      Did the candidate say anything interesting?

      It was rather exasperating really. I specifically asked him how he could defend his party's support for the charter and he responded with the usual "I understand your position" deflection. I wasn't permitted to follow up :-(
