Know your rights!

A Primer for Canadians

Anarchist Black Cross Calgary


A cop stops you while walking on the street and demands to see your identification, he says you 'fit the description' of a robbery suspect. A private security guard confronts you in the parking lot of a mall and asks you to empty your pockets. You're approached by some cops outside of an all-ages show who accuse you of being inebriated, they say they have the right to search you for liquor because you are under eighteen. In a society full of rules, heirarchy and authority figures, one or more of these scenarios has probably already happened to you.

This pamphlet is an attempt to summarize your rights in Canada. In a sense, it is a kind of 'self-defense' manual designed to help you protect yourself from intimidation by the police and psuedo-police, such as security guards. Although any discussion of the law necessitates some legalese and mumbo-jumbo, every attempt has been made to the materials clear and accessible. A short glossary of terms is included at the end of this pamphlet for easy reference.
