We are responding to the strong call we've had from our supporters for us to expand and hire a new staff member to work specifically on Scottish digital rights threats. But we need your help!

What's the situation?

Many people are concerned by the direction the Scottish Parliament is taking with civil liberties. There are growing plans for Entitlement Cards – a scheme that looks rather like ID Cards by the back door, attacks on Freedom of Information law in Scotland, proposals for massive data sharing across the Scottish government, and laws ordering the blocking of sectarian websites.

No rights organisation is currently working on these issues in Scotland.

Whether we hire an activism organiser, a policy expert or a part-time ORG Scotland Executive Director, we hope to begin working on Scottish campaigns very soon.

The more new people joining ORG, the more we'll be able to work for digital rights in Scotland.

To start this new project we're relying on lots of new supporters: Please join today!

If you're an existing ORG supporter in Scotland, consider increasing your donation. Doubling your donation is equivalent to a new supporter joining.
