Overview

In a country famous for having the most CCTVs in the world, how safe are your rights?

Six types of execution are practiced in the industrialized world, torture is openly sanctioned by America, and infringements of people’s civil liberties occur daily. Yet in 2005 only 61% of the British voting public chose to stand up for their rights.

Explaining what civil liberties are and why they’re worth defending, Tom Head shows how you can make a difference.
