Simone Van Hattem with the latest on the Protect Peaceful Protest campaign in WA

Simone Van Hattem with the latest on the Protect Peaceful Protest campaign in WA, a group concerned with legislation the Barnett government is attempting to push through parliament that would criminalise protest.

“We are concerned that the punishments defined in the bill, up to $24000 or 24 months’ imprisonment, will act as a deterrent to lawful and peaceful protests; inhibiting our ability and the ability of all Western Australians to stand up for the people, places and activities they love and to have their voices heard.”
