éirígí "Know your rights" Belfast launch
The PSNI, like the RUC before it, habitually harasses citizens as a core component of its activities. Confronted by these forces, many people unknowingly waive a number of their basic rights. Regrettably, due to the sheer number of repressive laws available to the British state forces, a great number of people are simply unaware as to what their rights are. For others, these forces are imposing and even intimidating figures of power and, as a result, they simply do as they are told. Whatever the case, we know that the PSNI act in opposition to the interests of the working class and, therefore, it falls to us to defend our own rights.
To defend them, you must know them!
