fanning the flames
and provide more excuses for the return of Joh like government. Media already poncing on as if Anon had threatened physical harm instead of the usual DOS and defacement of some little believed website. Draconian assembly laws not unique in Oz. Back in the Vietnam moritorium protest days, WA had a law requiring all gatherings over 5(?) people to be approved by fuzz. Not enforced, AFAIK, but great for an instant offence if required to packup unwanted aggregations of people. For some reason this did not cause any media comment. Perhaps a Manchester massacre event which perturbed even the conservative Duke of Wellington is about the only thing left that can create a sense that there have to be some limits to reactionary jackboot responses from simplistic pollies and their overly enthusiastic unfocused law enforcement. I hope it does not get that far. The Qld fuzz senior management must never have got the idea that they are meant to serve, not manage with the idea that one has to humbly request permission to do ones lawful thing.
