Witnessing an Arrest

When at a protest, there is no such thing as people who are 'non-arrestable'. This is because of the fact that anyone engaging in Nonviolent Direct Action or other forms of protest can be arrested. It is all at the discretion of police officers.

Witnessing an arrest is a skill not a role.

If there are no Legal Observers witnessing the arrest, then it is important for bystanders to step in to witness the arrest and make sure that the rights of the arrestee are being upheld.
