As we release the new tour dates now on sale for Inua Ellams’ An Evening with an Immigrant this spring and summer, we are really pleased to announce Fuel’s new partnership with Liberty. Liberty are currently campaigning to save the Human Rights Act (HRA). Article 8 of the HRA enabled Inua to be granted leave to remain in the UK. The current Government is threatening to scrap the Human Rights Act, and Theresa May recently became the first Prime Minister to advocate UK withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights - the international beacon of human rights protection which was drafted by British lawyers as a response to the horrors of the Second World War.

Liberty campaigns for civil liberties and human rights in the UK. They’re entirely independent – so can truly hold the powerful to account. From protecting privacy and freedom of speech, to righting discrimination and injustice – Liberty members have helped win legal cases, make the news and change the law for over 80 years. If you believe in a society defined by freedom, fairness and equal rights, make your voice heard and support the campaign today by becoming a Liberty member
