A controversial new bill of amendment was passed through the Victorian lower house this Thursday the 20th of February. Colloquially known as the ‘Anti-Protest Law’, the bill will significantly increase the power police have over protesters, picketers and blockades. If successfully passed into law, they will now have the ability to order protesters to move-on, hand down large fines and even threaten arrest. Reporter Laura Kewley spoke to the President of Liberty Victoria, Jane Dixon SC and Victorian Trade Hall Council member, Luke Hilakari about what this bill means for politically active Victorians.
