The ‘Free Range Activism Kit’ (FRAK) is an activist legal resource project, run by the Free Range Network, to provide informal support to local campaigns wanting to understand the mechanics of the English/Welsh legal system.
Welcome to ‘FRAK’!
‘FRAK’ is the successor to activist legal support projects run by the Network since it first began in the mid-1990s. It focusses on: How the legal process can prevent or restrict actions or protest; and, how the legal restrictions can be circumvented to undertake certain kinds of action more easily.
Browse ‘the resource page’ for our current information. You can get in touch with us via the FRAW site. As our new information becomes available over 2022/2023, when the current glut of new repressive laws are finalised, we will post updates to the site below.

‘The Protestagram’ is a map of protest and assembly laws in England and Wales. Produced in 2017, the current revisions to the law going through Parliament would render large parts of it completely wrong. This ‘temporary’ version adds a banner warning of this. When the legal situation has finally settled, we will re-issued the diagram once again.
