New hybrid storage solutions

No2ID has started a new pledge at Pledgebank.com asking for 50,000 people to offer their support, and cash, to the 10,000 who have promised to refuse to register for an ID card.

The pledge reads: "I will actively support those people who, on behalf of all of us, refuse to register for an ID card and I pledge to pay at least £20 into a fighting fund for them but only if 50,000 other people do the same."

Those who have signed the original pledge, saying that they will refuse to register for an ID card, are asked not to sign up for this new campaign. However, anyone who is uneasy about the government's plans to set up a national identity register, but feels unable to boycott it themselves, can point their browser here and join in.

Phil Booth, national coordinator of No2ID's campaigns says: "If the Bill passes then we will need all the refuseniks we can get, and the more people who pledge the stronger a signal it sends to the Government that it cannot win."

The original pledge - to refuse to register for an ID card and to donate £10 to a legal defence fund for anyone prosecuted for doing the same - reached its 10,000 signature goal last week. The total now stands at 10,598, and new signatures can be added up until 9 October 2005. ®
