Webinar | Right to protest: State of play, solidarity and resistance


28th May, Tuesday



Protests have been and remain a crucial tool of individual and collective expression, a vehicle for advancing human rights and a cornerstone of civic participation. In their many shapes and forms they have been a powerful way of making one’s voice heard in the face of injustice and oppression. But is the right to protest in Europe in danger?

In an attempt to raise awareness and continue demanding the protection of our rights, we invite you to a webinar organised by Amnesty International, Global Climate Legal Defense and The Movement Hub.

In the webinar you will:

📖 Hear about a soon to be published research done by Amnesty International in 21 European countries, mapping and analysing the current state of play of the right to protest with specific recommendations for changes in legislation, policy and practices by state authorities.

🔴Learn about the trends in repression towards climate activists and ways how Climate Defense is fighting back.

✊Get inspiration from a grassroots legal team on how to organise the work and support people taking action.

📢Understand the need for international solidarity, legal resilience and community organizing to prevent further restrictions.

Our speakers are: 

🎤 Catrinel Motoc is a senior campaigner on the right to protest in the Europe regional office of Amnesty International. 

🎤 Charlie Holt leads the European work of Global Climate Legal Defense (CliDef). He sits on the Steering Committee of the Coalition Against SLAPPs in Europe (CASE) and co-chairs the UK Working Group on SLAPPs.

🎤 Zoë is part of a Legal team of a grassroots group Collective Climate Justice based in Switzerland. The Legal Team Working Group does anti-repression work before, during and after actions, and its members also participate in the legal teams of other actions and groups.
