Free Speech is at risk from “cancel culture”.
Freedom of speech is fundamental in a free society and it should be protected and celebrated. But it is today at risk in the UK from “cancel culture”.
An intolerant minority of politically motivated campaigners are trying to shut down debates and cancel the views of people they disagree with, and their voice is getting louder because of the platform they’re being given by the mainstream media and big corporations. This is how mobs operate.
This small minority seeks to divide, rather than unite us, by inflicting their discriminatory opinions on the rest of us, by trashing Britishness and British heritage, toppling statues and flag shaming. We should learn from history, not change or erase it.
The rising intolerance of cancel culture is breeding fear and paranoia in our workplaces, politics, in sport, across the corporate world, at our children’s schools and even in our homes. It must be stopped.
True equality stems from mutual respect, fairness, open-mindedness and tolerance – and listening and learning from each other. These are British values, and Britain Uncancelled is here to defend and promote them.
Britain is a nation of equality and freedom, and there is nothing more British than being able to disagree and debate without fear of consequences.
We need conversation not confrontation, and enabling debates to happen openly and honestly can provide an antidote to the division and tribalism we’ve seen so much of recently.
BRITAIN UNCANCELLED is a new campaign opposed to cancel culture in all forms and we need your help to end it before it’s too late.
Join the campaign today, take the pledge and learn more about what you can do to help promote free speech without fear of retribution.
