Closed petition Stop the passing of the Online Safety Bill

We want the Government to withdraw the Online Safety Bill, so it does not become law.

More details

We believe the provisions of this bill raise serious human rights concerns, especially in relation to privacy of freedom of expression and privacy.

There are concerns that the legislation could be used to require providers of services that use end-to-end encryption, such as WhatsApp and Signal, to monitor their users' content.
