What we believe
At the heart of Protest Justice are individuals who have experienced, first hand, the unnecessary and disproportionate force used against campaigners, and malicious targeting for simply standing up for our beliefs. We feel it’s time for balance and for the “little guy” to have a voice which will be heard.
Protest Justice has been created to help protect those who protest. We want to empower, facilitate and support individuals who wish to make a complaint against the perpetrators of the inappropriate events they have either experienced or witnessed. We act to fill the gap between an incident happening and people simply wanting to, but not making a complaint, by giving them the “how”. This enables those complaints to be made, effectively and followed through to a satisfactory conclusion.
- It’s our core belief that peaceful protest should not be met with violence. That’s it, bottom line, it’s inappropriate and wrong.
- Too many people are being needlessly harassed, assaulted, injured, targeted and victimised by police, private security and even civilians somehow assisting them!
- The police rely on individuals giving up on their complaint because it’s too stressful, problematic or they feel intimidated.
