Urgent Action outcome: Clampdown on freedom of expression
Puerto Rico authorities responded violently to demonstrations on 1 May 2018 by repressing protesters and violating their rights to freedom of expression and assembly. With more demonstrations planned, peaceful protesters were at risk of further human rights violations.
Amnesty International will follow the situation in the upcoming months and will expand its human rights education and training aimed to prevent and expose restrictions to the right of freedom of expression and assembly.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
