What has Henry VIII got to do with Brexit? There’s actually more to this than you might think!
Henry VIII has a pretty notorious reputation, and we’re not just talking about the number of wives he went through! Despite being a ruthless leader, he accomplished a number of things in his life, specifically creating something called The Statute of Proclamations. Weirdly enough it’s still used today, and is being proposed in a new Brexit bill. Learn exactly what it might mean for Brexit and our rights at the end of the video.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
