B6 : Freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly in political protests

Since the start of the Hong Kong protests in March 2019, reports of police brutality and abuse of power have made constant headlines, citing violence against peaceful protesters and a luke warm response from the Hong Kong government. Similar protests were seen in Malawi and Sudan where protestors asserted their right to determine who should govern them. This discussion will examine threats to citizens’ constitutional rights to freedom of expression and to peaceful assembly in the critical time of mass political protests.
