Everyone has the right to protest!

The right to protest is a vital way for people to speak out about issues that matter to them and make sure that people in power listen to their concerns.

Section 17 of the Constitution says that everybody has the right to protest, peacefully and unarmed.

This includes protests which are non-violent but very disruptive. This right is closely linked to other political rights in the Constitution, including freedom of expression and freedom of association (which means the right to associate with a cause, idea, or organisation).
