Our rights to protest

Many Australian activists and social change organisations support the international struggle for human rights and work to ensure that the Australian government abides by the principles embedded in the various conventions, covenants and declarations adopted by the international community.

These include the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ICCPR (1966).

Since 1991, Australian citizens have been able to complain to the UN Human Rights Committee if their human rights are infringed.
