Dylan Voller arrested at peaceful protest

Dylan Voller being dragged away from the peaceful protest.

Aboriginal activist Dylan Voller could be charged with breaching his parole for taking part in a peaceful demonstration. On September 29, police in Alice Springs arrested Dylan and his mother Joanne Voller, among others, at a peaceful demonstration calling for youth prisons to be shut and justice for victims of Aboriginal deaths in custody.

The protesters broke no laws and police were only able to issue fines for “disorderly conduct”. But the NT Supreme Court said on October 5 that if Dylan pays the fine it would amount to admitting an offence, which means he has breached his parole conditions and he would be returned to prison.
