Civic Space on a Downward Spiral

Recently, about 30 organisers and attendees of the #Turun protest were summoned by the authorities to have their statement taken. The same was seen during the Lawyer’s walk for Judicial Independence and many protests before that. So, what does this say about freedom of assembly in this country? On the show with us is Josef Benedict, Asia Pacific Civic Space Researcher, CIVICUS.
