“Historic racial targeting” in the US is “dangerous” for peaceful assembly

The ‘historic racial targeting by police’ can be dangerous for citizens’ rights to peacefully assemble in the United States.

That’s according to Maina Kiai, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the rights to peaceful assembly and of association.

Kiai has been touring countries to assess the state of their civil rights.

For the last four months he has been in the US.
