Big Brother Watch has urgently questioned the legality of the Government’s vaccine passport trials at Wembley Stadium for the Euro 2020 matches.
The letter sent by our solicitors, AWO, warns that the controversial vaccine passport trial appears to be “occurring unlawfully and in non-compliance with the GDPR”.
Together, we vowed to bring “the greatest possible fight” against Covid passes – and thanks to 3,179 of you supporting this campaign on Crowdfunder, we are.
The stronger the support we have, the stronger the fight we can build – so please keep up your fantastic support and share our Crowdfunder far and wide!
We’ve urged DCMS to respond by Monday afternoon and explain whether and how the trial complies with the UK’s data privacy laws.
We’re poised to bring a legal challenge on privacy and equality grounds, should the Government proceed with COVID-status certification plans.
Wonderful scenes of fans back in stadiums leave a bad taste in the mouth when the only way they could get in is to hand over sensitive medical data.
This is not getting us back to normal, it’s getting us towards a dystopian society.
Building a country of checkpoints is not building back better.
We have no idea how the stadium might use fans’ vaccine data and are shocked by the slap dash way the Government has gone about such a serious medical privacy issue.
Covid passes are completely incompatible with our rights and the sooner these plans are scrapped, the better.
