Amnesty International Kenya to Deploy Protest Observers at Today’s Occupy Parliament Demonstration

Statement, Nairobi, 18 June 2024: Today’s call for Kenyans to assemble outside Parliament is in line with their rights to assemble, demonstrate, picket, and petition Parliament under the Constitution of Kenya Article 37. The focus of the picket is to express Kenyans’ views on the 2024/2025 Budget and taxation measures being proposed.

Amnesty International Kenya and other human rights organisations have trained and deployed observers to document and record what may happen outside the National Assembly. We urge the authorities to facilitate Kenyans’ rights to express themselves and assemble peacefully throughout the day.
