    The score for “Freedom of Assembly” is based on assessment of the following criteria. Are peaceful protests, particularly those of a political nature, banned or severely restricted? Are the legal requirements to obtain permission to hold peaceful demonstrations particularly cumbersome or time-consuming? Are participants in peaceful demonstrations intimidated, arrested, or assaulted? Are peaceful protesters detained by police in order to prevent them from engaging in such actions? Are organizers blocked from using online media to plan or carry out a protest, for example through DDoS attacks or wholesale blackouts of internet or mobile services? Are similar restrictions and obstacles used to impede other public events, such as conferences, panel discussions, and town hall–style meetings? Are public petitions, in which citizens gather signatures to support a particular policy or initiative, banned or severely restricted?
