This website contains content (and links to content) from a wide variety of sources, including from some groups which endorse non-violent direct action. Some forms of non-violent direct action might be in breach of the law. The purpose of this website to collate information which is already available on at least one other platform so that those already seeking such information can more easily find it.

3. Listing a group or action does not mean we endorse it.

Statement regarding information about arrest/law that is linked to on site.
We have included a very short set of links regarding UK protest law. We have included these links in good faith, believing that both Extinction Rebellion and Green and Black Cross will have only posted or linked to good quality information, but we are not lawyers and we don't know for sure whether or not the information in these links is complete, up-to-date and accurate. Please use them as starting point and do not rely on them as your only source of such information. The main aim of posting these links is to highlight some resources that are specifically aimed at persons who may be or feel particularly vulnerable when protesting (including while protesting legally) and to offer a starting point for individuals wishing to inform themselves about the law. Please remember that informing yourself and informing others about the law (including the law regarding arrest) is good practice for any person regardless of whether/how they campaign.
