NSW anti-protest laws
NSW Greens MLC Abigail Boyd discusses the increasingly draconian anti-protest laws in that state.
Four Fireproof Australia activists were arrested and charged under the new draconian anti-protest laws. Rachel Evans reports.
Activists took to the streets against new anti-protest laws which could make it illegal to try and stop government-inspired destruction.
Charges brought against the so-called “Wollar Three” under New South Wales’ controversial anti-protest laws were dismissed by a Mudgee magistrate on June 5. However, the laws remain a threat to the right to protest.
The Wollar Three — Bev Smiles, Bruce Hughes and Stephanie Luke — were arrested on April 12 last year for protesting against the expansion of the Wilpinjong coalmine, which would expand the mine to just 1.5 kilometres from the village.
