People's Picket

Defend the Right to Protest -
Join the People's Picket
Parliament House, Hobart
Oppose the Government's new legislation that is pending passage through the Legislative Council. This Bill harshly punishes free speech and peaceful assembly on public streets and other public places; may contravene the implied right to political communication in the Australian Constitution; proposes the creation of mandatory sentences, which do not currently exist in Tasmania, diminishing the separation of powers and the important checks and balances provided by independent courts.
