II. FROM ACTIONS TO IMPACT: FOLLOW-UP TO THE ACTIVITIES OF THE SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE
2. Thematic analysis of communications
32. The report presented in 2007 to the General Assembly (A/62/225) built on that analysis and focused on the right to protest in the context of freedom of assembly. In order to give prominence to the protest element of the analysis, the information was organized on the basis of: groups of protesters i.e. women defenders, student activists, trade unionists and defenders working on the rights of lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual persons (LGBT); and thematic areas of protest, i.e. the anti-globalization movement, demonstrations linked to elections, peace demonstrations and protests linked to land rights and environmental claims.
