VIDEO: Gillard hides from student protesters at Curtin Uni

Issue 

Around 50 students protested an appearance at Curtin Uni by Julia Gillard on September 5. The prime minister sneaked in through a back door while large numbers of police guarded the front door. Invitations to the function to launch a new building were issued only to a select few.

Protesters argued the case for equal marriage rights and to free the refugees.

One person spoke out against the ongoing crime of the war in Afghanistan.

The rally was organised by Equal Love Perth and was supported by the Curtin Refugee Rights Action Network.
