Latvian term or phrase:sabiedrības civiltiesību aizsardzība
(The organisation) Civil Rights Protection of Society
Explanation: The organisation "Civil Rights Protection of Society".
When departing from Latvian source it actually sounds clumsy - Civil Rights (civiltiesības) are "the protections and privileges of personal power given to all citizens by law" @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_rights
These individual rights cannot be attached to a society per se, but the very individual only.
To my mind and logic, author rather implied the organisation "Civil Rights Protection of Individuals".
