Agenda: Conference #Right2Protest: The vulnerability of the Right to Protest

European meeting of strategy, advocacy and protection of the #Right2Protest

Conference #Right2Protest:

  • 20 Novembre from 17.30 to 20.00 h
  • 21 November from 17.30 to 19.30 h
  • Recinto Escuela Industrial. “El vagó” building (behind DIBA). Sala Actes.
  • Free access. No registration required.

In the current context of criminalization of mobilization, popular action and social organization in Europe, as well as of security policies and the rise of the extreme right, collective strategies are needed to confront the violation of Human Rights and to guarantee the exercise of Right to Protest.

During two days, different European organisations and movements for the defence of rights will participate in Barcelona in the meeting “The vulnerability of the right to protest”. They will exchange and share strategies, actions and tools to defend and protect the exercise of the right to protest: from political advocacy, to accompaniment and legal advice in demonstrations and direct protection of human rights defenders, among others.

At the conference we’ll talk about:

  • Protest to Europe.
  • Strategy of defense and protection against the rise of the extreme right.
  • Organized and collective action as a response.

Attendees will learn about protection tools that are being used to defend the right to protest and they will know more about European advocacy strategies to defend civil and political rights.

We look forward to seeing you!
