High Court of Australia

NSW Greens Senator David Shoebridge told a “Kill The Bill” protest at Sydney Town Hall that Labor’s Deportation and Entry Ban bill would give the immigration minister “god-like powers”. Peter Boyle reports.

A public forum discussed the High Court’s decision on indefinite detention and the racist backlash. Chris Slee reports.

Since the High Court ruled that indefinite detention is illegal, Labor rushed to introduce new laws specifically for 83 newly released detainees which continue to demonise them. Binoy Kampmark reports.


The High Court’s ruling in NZYQ should be an opportunity to create a system that strikes a balance between respect for human rights and the rule of law and the rightful protection of the community, argues Mary Crock.
