Activism: guidance on protesting safely

03 October 2022

Protesters marching through a street in Brussels

If you're attending a march or protest, make sure you're doing so safely and within the limits of the law.

Peaceful protest is lawful, but there are certain limitations on the right to protest that you should be aware of.

We aim to give you a brief overview of the law relating to protests, and some guidance on good practice if you are involved in a protest or demonstration.

This is not a comprehensive guide to the law, and if you are in doubt about your legal position, you should take independent legal advice.
