It was a Labour government that enshrined the rights and freedoms contained in the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law, marking the birth of the Human Rights Act.
The Conservative government has committed “grave, systematic violations of the rights of persons with disabilities” (UN report).
The Conservatives are eroding progress for women, people with disabilities, LGBT people & BAME communities. Cuts to services are landing disproportionately on women & ethnic minorities, with 86% of money raised from tax & social security changes coming from women’s pockets.
