Protestors shouldn’t be treated differently
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.
