Monday evening at the 2012 Liberty Human Rights Awards ceremony, the Open Rights Group won Human Rights Campaigner of the Year Award, jointly awarded to us and 38 Degrees.
The Award was given for our work campaigning against the Snooper’s Charter: that’s your work, emailing and visiting MPs, submitting evidence to the Joint Committee and now, organising local campaigning across the country.
Liberty also highlighted the range of work we do, on copyright and censorship as well as privacy.
Given the sometimes controversial nature of the 38 Degrees campaigning, I suspect the joint-winner will attract some raised eyebrows. None, however, should be directed at the Open Rights Group for their excellent work.
