    The proposed right:

    No government shall deprive a person from peaceful association with others.


    The inclusion of the word peaceful is important, because it allows the government to prosecute criminal associations while preventing the government from prosecuting peaceful associations such as labor unions, political parties, book clubs, athletic teams, companies, non-profit groups, religious groups, and many more (assuming they are not engaged in any violation of rights or other crimes).

    The right to peaceful association differs from the right to peaceful assembly in that assembly refers to people being in the same place at the same time, whereas people may associate with each other individually in person or by mail or any other means of communication.

    The right to peaceful association is an important complement to the right to honest and peaceful speech, because it protects the ability of people to communicate with each other in a peaceful.
