In Australia peaceful protests could in future carry prison sentences of up to 25 years
The right-of-centre Australian Turnbull Government has passed new police state laws that threaten our movement's ability to campaign for a fair, flourishing and just Australia. Actions that merely harm the government's reputation on political or economic matters can now be prosecuted as serious national security offences. So peaceful blockades of Adani coal operations, or exposing the truth about child abuse on Nauru to the UN, could carry prison sentences of up to 25 years.
