Peaceful assembly is a cornerstone of civil society and democracy.

Many of the liberties we enjoy today were earned through peaceful assemblies of the past.

Preserving the rights of protesters protects the rights of us all. That’s why free assembly is recognized as a human right—as universal as voting or free speech—in Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Article 20 Network is the first human rights organization solely dedicated to defending and advancing peaceful assembly worldwide.
