Your right to protest in NSW

Holding a placard high above your head and marching down the street demanding change can be a very powerful thing and is vital to a healthy and accountable democracy. 

Grata, together with our friends at CounterAct developed this tool for NSW activists in response to an increasing clampdown on the right to protest and the importance of public interest litigation to protect this vital democratic right.

In the booklet you will find information about:

  • Your right to protest
  • Answering police questions
  • Search and seizure
  • Arrest
  • Getting out of Custody¬†
  • Possible offences in NSW
  • Criminal records
  • Finding legal support
