Dominic GrieveChaired by Baroness Julia Neuberger

At JW3, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET

The modern concept of human rights was the civilised world’s response to the horrors of the Holocaust. These rights were never intended to be transient things which could be removed, ripped up or redrafted by the government of the day, but now they are under threat.

The government is proposing to repeal the Human Rights Act. If successful, this could significantly undermine the provisions that currently safeguard human rights in the UK.

Prominent amongst those voicing their concern about the government’s plan is its own former Attorney-General (and current chair of Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee), Dominic Grieve – widely-respected as a leading legal authority in his party.

Join René Cassin to hear why he opposes repeal of the Human Rights Act and how it deeply relates to and affects the Jewish community.
