Protest has been vital in securing many of the rights and freedoms we enjoy today and it has the power to change the course of history. It has been used to create democracies and demand fair and equal treatment.
Join Index on Censorship and Liberty for an afternoon of debate and discussion about how we can use peaceful protest today to achieve positive change. Hear from experienced campaigners, and learn more about your right to protest.
