The De Beauvoir Association in partnership with the Hackney Gazette is organising a hustings for the Hackney South and Shoreditch candidates.
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?
Selected questions will be put to the Parliamentary Candidates. If you would like to ask a question please email [masked] your question with your full name.
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.
