Two Years After Adoption: President Must Repeal Unfair Protest Law and Immediately Release Thousands of Innocents

The undersigned organizations deplore the prosecution and detention of tens of thousands of people for exercising their right to peaceful protest and assembly or for simply being in the area of such protests, in the wake of the adoption on November 24, 2013 of the law regulating public assemblies, processions, and peaceful demonstrations in public places, known as the protest law.
