Repeal Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 and expunge all convictions
Repeal Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 and expunge all convictions of those whom have been pursecuted under this section of the law. As well as acknowledge that the UK internet also shares our respect for peoples freedoms of speech and expression.
Over the last decade, people have been convicted [with record] under the pretents of personally/potentially "grossly offensive" matterial (of which no definition is given) over jokes and petty arguements on the internet via social media and other platforms. It is because of the increase of these cases that a growing number of people are concerned for their own online safety and the devistating real world ramifications under this section of law, that this petition has been created and signed
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
