Victorious free speech speak-out

Perth City rangers were conspicuously absent as more than sixty people spoke freely in the Murray Street Mall on May 26. This speak-out was the first action called by new group Defend Free Speech Perth in response to a recent pattern of rangers harassing activist events.

Organisations represented among the people to speak included: the Nyoongar Tent Embassy, the Maritime Union of Australia and the United Motorcycle Council of WA.

The speak-out concluded with a unanimous agreement to return to Murray Street Mall on Saturday 9 June 2012 at 1pm. This also would also help pave the way towards the major Free Speech Festival planned for July 7.
