IATE Term of the Week: right to demonstrate


megaphoneUkraine is undergoing a period of unrest; violence between Ukraine’s anti-government, pro-EU protest movement and the police has created a worrying situation on the streets of Kiev. On January 22nd two protesters were killed in clashes with police in the Ukrainian capital. For this reason we have chosen ‘right to demonstrate’ as our IATE Term of the Week. Find out more about this topic with this article. You can also read the statement made by the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, on recent events in Ukraine.



We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and an accurate definition and/or context if possible.
