The NUS Society and Citizenship Zone, together with Liberty, today launch guidance on your rights to protest.
NUS are committed to developing local activism and supporting you to run campaigns on your campus and in your city. We also believe that peaceful protest has played a major role in bringing about important social and political changes.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve joined together with Liberty, one of the UK’s leading human rights organisations, to put together a briefing on protest and your rights.
This briefing should tell you all your need to know about organising marches and demonstrations, as well as your legal rights and information about police powers and tactics. Download it here.
We’ll be officially launching the guidance at Student Activism 2011, where there will be a panel debate on the right to protest with representatives from Liberty, Defend the Right to Protest, UK Uncut and others. So make sure you don’t miss out!
