It is important to be aware of legal issues surrounding demonstrating and protesting.
We get many enquiries from people unsure of where they stand when faced with the law which is why the legal booklet has been produced. This booklet covers everything from do you have to give your details to the police, to face masks to human rights, using video cameras on demos, to suing the police – and hopefully getting some money to plough back into campaigns – as many activists have done over the years!
There is also very good legal advice website at www.freebeagles.org which is well worth a visit. Also take a look at www.yourrights.org.uk.
If you need to be put in touch with a solicitor just contact us, or take a look at the following firms who are all highly experienced when it comes to defending activists from all types of campaign groups. If you have been arrested then you will need a criminal lawyer. If you have had your case dropped, or feel you have been the victim of unlawful policing, and wish to sue, you will need a civil lawyer.
