What Are Your Rights as a Protester in the UK?

Know your rights?

A handy little video for UK-based protesters and organisers courtesy of the campaign platform Care2. Find out from the horses mouth (Sgt. Redbourn of Sussex Police) what your rights are when calling demonstrations, being asked for your details, wanting to know if you are being monitored – or needing to pee on the floor while bring kettled.

“The video answers practical questions people may have about activism,” Granter says. “Some people are afraid to use their legal right to protest because they don’t know what they can and can’t do within the law. They’re afraid of getting into trouble.”

Granter says she hopes the video shows the public they can engage in direct action legally and safely.
