The Climate Action Centre, supported by the LSS Equality and Environment officers, present a public forum on the new offences introduced to deter protest at coal-fired power stations.
Late last year the Victorian Parliament created two new offences specifically aimed at deterring protest activity at coal-fired power stations. Panel members will discuss the legal and civil liberties implications of the laws as the ways to understand and respond to this narrowing of the space for political participation.
