Banning Lock-On Devices in QLD

Posted on: Wed 4 Sep 2019

The Lock-On protest tactic is considered “non-violent civil-disobedience”, and reduces the risk of a group stand-off between protesters and authorities.

However, The Queensland Government has proposed laws to outlaw the use or possession of protest lock-on devices.

Aidan Ricketts, Lecturer at the School of Law and Justice at Southern Cross University joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to explain the proposed laws.
