On Tuesday 1st of May the WA Legislative Council will resume and the first thing they will be discussing is the proposed ‘anti-association’ law.
This bill is the latest move from a government that has shown little to no respect for the civil rights of ordinary Western Australians, and follows in the footsteps of policies such as mandatory sentencing, stop and search powers, prohibited behaviour orders and CHOGM exclusion orders.
In 2009 you helped defeat the proposed stop and search legislation, which sought to remove the need for reasonable suspicion in police searches. We need your help again to do the same to the anti-association bill.
Please join Search For Your Rights in our Act for Association.
Starting from today Search For Your Rights will be timing a series of simple acts to show our elected officials that we will not stand for yet another unwarranted, unjustified and unproven restriction on our rights.
Please join us, and together we can once again show the WA Parliament that contrary to what they think, we do give a shit about what they do to our rights.
The event page where you can be updated on the acts that you can do in support of association can be found here . Alternatively, each act will be added to the website as they are released.
