Liberty: Extinction Rebellion High Court win a ‘victory for protest rights’

Posted on 06 Nov 2019

Liberty, the human rights organisation, has responded to news the High Court has ruled the Metropolitan Police’s ban on Extinction Rebellion protests was unlawful.

Gracie Bradley, Liberty policy and campaigns manager, said:

“This is a victory for protest rights in the UK. The Met’s Extinction Rebellion ban was grossly disproportionate and undermined people’s fundamental rights to freedom of expression and assembly. This ruling will help safeguard future protests from police overreach.”
