Bill saves court trips

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

in tourism, protests on cli­mate change, paramedic work­ers protest­ing ramp­ing and con­di­tions. Nurses protest­ing about dou­ble shifts. The list goes on.

Where are the po­lice go­ing to hold all of these peo­ple? Where are they go­ing to get the ex­tra po­lice to do this?

The Lib­eral Govern­ment wants to si­lence your voice. When good peo­ple say noth­ing, bad things hap­pen.

Robert Hob­son


THE right to protest does not ex­tend to tres­pass (statute law) or blockad­ing (com­mon law). If the Bill goes no fur­ther than the com­mon law it should be passed, if only to save peo­ple the trou­ble of hav­ing to trip off to the Supreme Court ev­ery time they get block­aded.
