Fund online abuse and harassment prevention

"We want the UK to be the safest place in the world to be online" - Jeremy Wright, Minister for Culture, Media and Sport.

Facebook has finally admitted that it has lost control of harmful content on its platform, and the government are stepping up to the task.

1 in 5 women in the UK have experienced online harassment or abuse.* This is our chance to finally change that - so it's vital the government gets it right. If they're really committed to being a world leader in handling abuse and harassment, they need to commit funding.

Call on Jeremy Wright -Minister for Culture, Media and Sport - to put money where his mouth is and push for 1% of the new Tech Tax to be used to tackle online abuse and harassment.*

*According to Amnesty International.

**On 29th October 2018, the UK Chancellor announced a new Digital Services Tax of 2% on tech giants like Facebook, Google and Twitter. This tax is expected to raise an additional £400m a year. By ringfencing at least 1% of this new tax annually for ending online abuse, the Government can commit £4m to transforming experiences of abuse and harassment online
