Protestors shouldn’t be treated differently

Media Release
Bob Brown 12 Dec 2011

Tasmanian police are alone in wanting to charge protestors for costs associated with their arrest, Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

In a submission to the consultation paper about the proposed changes, Senator Brown said no other state or territory has such an anti-democratic law.

"Such a law would have put the suffragettes out of business and would have left slavery flourishing," Senator Brown said in Hobart.

Senator Brown's submission is attached.
