Short Update: New report stresses unnecessary and disproportionate restrictions on civic space and freedoms in the EU

FairTrialsAdmin - September 24, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Rule of Law, Extended police powers, Surveillance

Liberties-Greenpeace issued a report stressing how governments across the EU have adopted unnecessary and disproportionate restrictions on the right to protest, free speech, access to information and freedom of association in the name of protecting public health.  

The report records some of the most striking developments in EU countries. In some countries, those who claimed the right to peaceful assembly were subjected to invasive surveillance, hefty sanctions or faced violent actions by police. 

See the full report here.
