Petition against imprisoning whistleblowers who expose things like NHS & education abuses
  • A REALLY important petition to protect whistleblowers and journalists who speak out about human rights abuses and abuses of power. Disgusting that this is something we should even need to prevent! Please sign and share widely!

    "Protect whistleblowers To Home Secretary Amber Rudd

    Scrap plans for harsher punishments for whistleblowers, and the journalists they leak to.

    Whistleblowers - people who expose things like tax dodging and unnecessary NHS deaths - can reveal secrets that are in the interest of the public. But new plans to potentially lock up some whistleblowers for up to 14 years could have a chilling effect - keeping hidden things we all have a right to know.

    These plans were floated last night, it could be the government testing the waters to see how the public reacts to the idea. Let's show them we're against locking up whistleblowers - and the journalists they leak to - for up to 14 years. Sign the petition now."
