The Data Protection and Digital Information Bill will gut UK privacy laws, attacking our ability to challenge data abuse and expanding ways in which the Government can snoop on you.
The bill contains powers that would enable them to snoop on the bank accounts and financial assets of anyone who claims ANY benefit. That includes child benefit and the state pension, alongside tax credits and universal credit.
From workers and children to NHS patients and migrants, GDPR protects us all. It has been used to stop unfair exam grading algorithms, robo-dismissals from employment and digital strip searches of sexual abuse victims. These are just a few of the vital protections on the chopping block.
Fight for your rights – tell the government to get their hands off our data!
