We are a society at Leeds University concerned with the protection of civil liberties and the promotion of human rights in the UK. Feel free to come to any of our meetings even if you do not yet have membership. in order to find out more.
We explore a large variety of issues, some of which are listed below – Human rights in the war on terror: detention without charge, UK complicity in torture, the right to free speech and protest, privacy: the expanding DNA database, ID cards, and internet surveillance – inequality in the law: racial profiling, the rape conviction rate, women’s prisons. We are loosely affiliated with the aims of the wider Liberty organisation which can be found at http://www.liberty-human-rights.org.uk/ and we hope to have the director – Shami Chakrabati speak later this year.
