Back in June, Phil Booth of No2ID set up an online pledge for people to sign pledging to refuse to register for the card/database the British government are proposing and to pay £10 to a legal defence fund, so long as 10,000 others joined in. The pledge reached its total of 10,000 signatures by the 18th July and reached a total of 11,368 by the time it closed on the 9th October.

A second pledge was set up for people who felt they couldn’t afford the fines/risk of going to jail but who opposed ID cards to donate £20 pounds to the legal defence fund. It’s target is 50,000 signatures by the end of March 2006. It currently has 728 signatures.

Now a new pledge, similar the first has been set up, aiming for 15,000 signatures by 8th January 2006. Again it involves pledging to refuse to register and to pay £10 to the legal defence fund.

British residents who oppose ID cards and haven’t already signed one of the pledges are invited to sign up to either of the current pledges (i.e. the 2nd and 3rd pledges).

Do not sign the pledges if you’ve already signed an earlier pledge though.
