The UK nationwide Schedule 7 workshops came to an end this weekend, providing people with the tools and knowledge they need in the event that they are stopped under Schedule 7 – with the recent changes in the law these workshops have been beneficial in clarifying police duties and rights individuals have whilst being stopped under this oppressive power. Due to these recent changes, CAGE has produced a new Know Your Rights: Schedule 7 leaflet so that this information is readily accessible for anyone wishing to better understand their rights. A PDF copy of the leaflet can be downloaded here.
For more information on Schedule 7 please visit the Schedule 7 Stories website here. To further understand your rights in relation to terrorism legislation, please follow this page here. To download a PDF version of the leaflet please click here.
