Assembly

Netpol – the network of activists, lawyers and researchers that monitors and challenges excessive and discriminatory policing – is crowdsourcing the ‘knowledge and experience of campaigning groups to find out what changes they want to see’ to protect the right to protest.

‘Rather than continuing to ask the police and other authorities for transparency and getting nowhere, perhaps it’s time we started offering solutions ourselves’, the group noted.

Netpol plans to contact a wide range of campaigning organisations with the aim of turning the material gathered into a new Charter for Freedom of Assembly Rights.
