Defend the Right to Protest (DTRTP) was formed in the wake of violent police tactics and arrests at the student protests of November and December 2010 to build a collective response to the criminalisation of large numbers of young protesters.
We are a national campaign involving a network of protester defendants and their families, activists, trade unionists, academics and lawyers.
We seek to ensure protesters who are unjustly arrested or criminalised are not left to fight alone. We campaign against policing, policies and practices that threaten the right to protest and our civil liberties. We work in solidarity with a range of community and family justice campaigns challenging state violence and racism.
