Civil Rights In The United Kingdom



Civil Rights In The United Kingdom

In early 19th century Britain, the phrase “civil rights” most commonly referred to the problem of legal discrimination against Catholics. In the House of Commons support for the British civil rights movement was divided, many more largely known politicians supported the discrimination towards Catholics. Independent MPs (such as Lewis Eves and Matthew Mountford) applied pressure on the larger parties to pass the civil rights act of the 1920s (wikipedia).

Civil liberties In The United Kingdom

Civil liberties in the United Kingdom have a long and formative history. This is usually considered to have begun with the English legal charter the Magna Carta of 1215, following its predecessor the English Charter of Liberties, a landmark document in English legal history. Judicial development of civil liberties in the English common law peaked in 17th and 18th centuries, while two revolutions secured Parliamentary sovereignty over the King and judges. During the 19th century, working-class people struggled to win the right to vote and join trade unions. Parliament responded and judicial attitudes to universal suffrage and liberties altered with the onset of the first and second world wars. Since then, the United Kingdom’s relationship to civil liberties has been mediated through its membership of the European Convention on Human Rights (wikipedia)

For many young Black people in Britain, one would argue that it is very easy for them to recall the names of US Civil Rights icons, better than not knowing any at all right? Well, it begs the question as to whether there are any standout Black UK Civil Rights activists who fought the struggle and why, if not, is it not taught in schools? Continue reading
