Brexit and Digital Rights

Brexit is a gamechanger for digital rights.

Leaving the EU will alter what we can see and say online, how our personal data is handled and how we can hold our government to account. 

The UK government will ‘take back control’ - but what it will do with that control is unknown. It could take positive steps to protect online speech and privacy - or it could attack our freedoms and increase surveillance. If we are not vigilant, secretive new trade agreements could roll back digital freedoms.

As the UK reorients itself post-Brexit, you can rely on Open Rights Group to monitor the government’s new digital policies and challenge proposals that threaten our rights online.
