Our Legal Right to Protest

Warringah Council has finally admitted our legal right to assembly - check out the media section for last minute updates. Funny though, they say dogs don't have that right. We agree, in principle, unless of course those dogs belong to us and are with us. Since common sense isn't working, and (owned) 'property' is subject to a range of interpretation, we think it is a matter for the courts to decide. Of course, we still invite Warringah to take their head of the sand and come to the table and be willing to SHARE community resources be it on a time basis or a space basis.
We will be asking them to publish their acknowledgement of our legal assembly as one aspect of making amends to our concerns regarding defamation.
