Know your rights

It’s best to know your rights before you attend a protest. Amnesty International suggests remembering the following:

Freedom of expression and assembly: Everyone has the right to express their opinion.

The right to free assembly: Law enforcement must facilitate and not restrict a peaceful assembly.

Freedom from excessive use of force: In nonviolent protests, police must avoid the use of force.
