If your query isn’t related to protest please don’t ring the Protest Legal Support Line, which only has capacity to support people whose cases are related to protest: contact a solicitor directly.

Protest Legal Support Helpline – 07946 541 511

Call us if you’ve witnessed arrests or police misconduct at a protest, or for advice on your rights if attending or planning an action.

Please do not reveal secret or incriminating details over the phone that may harm your case.

Secure Communication

We use the Riseup email service to improve the security of our communications.

Sending an email is a bit like sending a postcard, easy to read as it passes through the delivery system, but messages sent between Riseup, Aktivix and Greennet have an additional layer of security.

We recommend that you send us email from an account on one of these services.

Email correspondence from GBC will normally be signed using our PGP/GPG key to confirm that it comes from us.

You can send us encrypted messages using our PGP/GPG public key - details in our contact details opposite.

Sending us an encrypted email can never guarantee absolute security. To learn more about encrypted communications see the guide on Tech Tools for Activism.
