Protesting Rights



Conduct when Protesting
The the USA Bill of Rights Act 1990 gives you the right to freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly. You can take part in any peaceful demonstration, but the police should be informed of your intentions. The police have the right to intervene in the demonstration if the behaviour of any of the demonstrators, including you, amounts to an offence, which would be obstructing or assaulting police officers, breaching the peace or conducting offensive behaviour or using offensive language.

If you hold your public meeting indoors the police have no right to attend unless they are specifically invited.
