Know your rights information

Last reviewed: 02/11/2023

If you're attending a protest it's important that you know your rights. During busy times our team will try our best to organise zoom training sessions, however during quieter periods, or if you are unable to attend a zoom, please read through the below resources.

Please note: our guides are primarily focused on the law as it is written, in reality things can happen differently. We cannot always predict how the police will respond in certain scenarios, while our guides show what should happen, this is not always what does happen. Please be cautious and also mindful of discrimination
