Hull NO2ID launches on Monday

We had a good meeting yesterday planning the launch for Monday.  Leader of the Council Carl Minns and Councillors Fareham and Walker are also expected on Monday. It would be nice to have Labour in the city represented too…

We had a pretty busy stall in town and spoke to 30 or 40 people and many signed up to our petition to put an end to ID cards. Quite a few people still only had the barest idea…

But the campaign as a whole is against the database state and the many ways government authorities make demands of us – from demanding a chipped passport, to possible fines of £1000 on us for any mistake that may be on their ID card.

Despite the cost, despite that cards can be cloned, despite the admission they will not reduce crime or terrorism, despite the large amounts of data already lost, the real question is: how much do we trust our governments?

We hope lots of people will make our launch on Monday, 11am in Queen Victoria Square, Hull.
