Protest plays a deeply important role in our democracy; it is both our right and our duty as citizens when faced with an injustice that the institutional democratic process, such as voting or contacting your representatives, has failed. There have been so many cases when protest has been key to bending the arc of the moral universe towards justice. At times, the cost of protest can be great – the institutions of the State, even in democracies, have all too often responded with intimidation and brute force. It is therefore necessary to promote and defend the right to protest, and always to resist the complacence and convenience the tempts to us to believe there is no need for protest, simply because it makes us uncomfortable. The Irish Council of Civil Liberties is running a series of projects on the right to protest and wants to hear from you!
