Provocatio was the right to appeal a decision of a magistrate that had a direct negative impact upon that citizen to the comitia populi tributa. If any magistrate was attempting to use the powers of the state against a citizen (such as to punish that citizen for an alleged crime), that citizen could cry "provoco ad populum".
