London – CAGE has today launched a comprehensive online resource with over 200 pieces of content, featuring know your right guides, reports and views from across the board that demonstrate the consensus rejecting PREVENT. [1]

The ‘Abolish Prevent’ website captures a decade of advocacy by CAGE against PREVENT, and provides a way forward beyond the failed PREVENT policy, which has been widely endorsed by over 100 professionals and academics. 

Centering the calls to Abolish Prevent, the website was launched ahead of the Government’s anticipated whitewash of a review into PREVENT to reaffirm CAGE’s principled opposition to the counter productive and exploitative policy. 

Speaking on its launch Mohammed Rabbani Managing Director of CAGE said:

“The website serves as a permanent record evidencing the overwhelming need to abolish Prevent. This website is the culmination of over a decade of work by CAGE, having directly assisted nearly 400 individuals and organisations targeted by Prevent, uncovered damning evidence against the programme , and worked to build consensus in civil society around a common position. We have faced trenchant criticism from right wing forces and initial scepticism from civil rights groups , but the material illustrates that our wake call was justified and necessary ”

“Abolishing PREVENT is the only sensible option. The evidence is clear that the policy undermines civil liberties , and only serves to bolster the ever encroaching surveillance infrastructure created by the state to demolish our rights and freedoms.”

“Impacted communities, activists and organisers can all benefit from this website as it presents a community-led response to the failed PREVENT programme in one central place. We renew our call to all right minded individuals and groups to join our campaign to abolish what has been one of the most pernicious policies in modern times.”
