Following on from the earlier ‘refuse’ and ‘resist’ pledges, No2ID have set up a new ‘refuse’ pledge. As with the first one, pledgers pledge to refuse to register for a card/on the database and to donate £10 to a legal defence fund. This time the aim is to get 15,000 signatures by January 8th 2006. The first one achieved its target of 10,000 signatures by the 18th of July and totalled over 11,368 signatures by the time it closed on the 9th October.
British residents who oppose the cards and have not yet signed a pledge are invited to sign either the ‘resist’ pledge or the second ‘refuse’ pledge (this one aimed at those who feel unable to run the risks associated with refusing). But please do not sign more than one pledge!
