Freedom Of Protest
Freedom Of Protest

The right to organise, assemble and form groups is a necessity of free society and rests at the hub of functioning democratic systems. This right is constitutionally guaranteed in the 1999 Constitution, and this is significant because it is a potent symbol of the exercise of rights by which citizens can positively support a democratic and constitutional order, influence their government and leaders, and the right to challenge the dominant views within the society to promote the interest and views of minority groups. Various forms of self expression and protest are sometimes restricted by governmental policy, economic circumstances, religious orthodoxy and social structures or media monopoly. The value of this right is further guaranteed and protected in international and regional human rights treaties that contain clear enunciations of these rights and this is further reaffirmed by the OSCE’s participating States in the Copenhagen Documents of 1990. However, it is best elaborately defined in international labour law as a result of the links between these rights and the ability of workers to secure their economic and social status.
