Rally for your rights 20 Apr 2010

Rally for your rights
Stop the Stop and Search Laws

12:30pm, Tues 20 April
Parliament House (Harvest Terrace, West Perth - click here for directions)

Come down to rally against the Government’s proposed “stop and search” laws – Tuesday 20th April, 12.30pm at Parliament House.

They propose to remove the requirement of ‘reasonable suspicion’ for police searches. Removing the requirement of reasonable suspicion does nothing but CREATE UNREASONABLE SEARCHES.

All of the evidence shows that these laws will not decrease crime, but will increase community disunity, legalise harassment, and strip everyday citizens of their rights.

We’re not willing to let WA slip back into the dark ages.

Come down on the day we present our parliamentary petition calling for the Legislative Assembly to withdraw its support for this legislation.

Hear some speakers on why these laws won’t work and must be stopped; and shout out your protest against the injustices against you proposed in these laws.

Everyone is welcome and wanted- none of us have special rights. If one of us loses our rights, we all do.

Event details are also on Facebook here – please feel free to RSVP there.
