Activist Rights

Keeping informed of counter-terror legislation

Estimated reading: 1 minute

Activists may feel helpless, and think that any action against such a powerful piece of legislation would be futile.

However, information is a form of power in itself, and Australia’s civil rights activists and lawyers need to stay alert and informed to the implications and ramifications of the terror laws.

Every bad law, or law being misused, can be resisted. The state and its security apparatus is not, and never will be, omnipotent (having unlimited power).
