Restore the Right to Silence

Restore the full right to silence that was removed by the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994. It is not up to us to prove our innocence, but up to the state to prove that we are guilty!

Why does this idea matter?

The right to silence is one of the most basic rights for innocent people — it means that we do not have to prove our defence; the state must prove our guilt. Allow inferences from silence mean that we are forced to prove our defence. This is wrong.
