Petition Do Not Leave the European Convention on Human Rights
It has been reported that the Prime Minister is considering leaving the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) to support efforts to prevent people from seeking asylum. This decision could place the rights of the British people under serious threat. We want the UK to remain part of the ECHR.
Leaving the ECHR would reduce the UK's international commitments in respect of human rights. We are concerned that this could lead to changes such as the rolling back of LGBTQ rights, more deportations, and even death sentences returning.
Human Rights legalisation is already a complex field, and we want the Government to commit to not leaving the ECHR, to ensure that the UK's international commitments in respect of human rights are not reduced.
