- Don't Spy on Us launches fundraiser for Investigatory Powers Bill ad campaign
Don't Spy on Us is raising funds for an advertising campaign about the Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB).
The revised Bill was published at the start of March, less than three weeks after the Joint Committee published its critical report into the draft Bill. It is now being reported that the Government will try and rush the Bill through the House of Commons in under two months.
If passed, the #IPBill would mean that the UK has the most extreme surveillance law of any democracy in the world, putting us on a par with the likes of Russia and China.
Don't Spy on Us has been working with a leading advertising agency, who offered their services to us pro bono. They have come up with a brilliant idea for a campaign that we think will get MPs' attention.
Don't Spy on Us is asking for the public to make donations that could pay for:
A billboard in a high profile location – such as Westminster
Social media ads to help us reach as many people as possible
Adverts in national newspapers
The more we raise, the more ads we can run, and the more people we can reach. You can make a donation here.
