Our ‘Know Your Rights’ workshop aims to give you the knowledge to combat repressive police tactics commonly used against protesters.
Officers often rely on the lack of legal understanding of those participating in protest. This interactive session will give you the tools to take action more confidently.
- Our Key Messages
The most important thing you can take with you on a protest.
- Police Tactics and Private Security
Who are these police liaison teams and what is their role?
- Stop and Search
Understand the limits of what the police can search for and learn how to resist information gathering techniques used by officers.
- What happens when I’m arrested
Your first arrest is always going to be difficult experience. We take you through the process and your rights in custody, to prepare you for the experience should it arise.
- Laws commonly used against protesters
We’ll put you in the shoes of a police officer on the hunt to make some arrests.
There is also space to ask questions, and we can tailor the workshop to your group ahead of a planned action.
Please note that our trainings are only relevant to England & Wales as the law is different elsewhere.
The workshop usually lasts around 2 hours. We run public online trainings fairly regularly, and also run these workshops on request. We ask that your group provide a venue if you request an in-person training, and that you have at least 12-15 people in attendance.
