In the last few weeks, Brisbane has seen an outbreak of small groups of zealots carrying out unauthorised protests blocking peak hour traffic, tying up emergency services for hours and costing thousands of dollars. Everyone has a right to protest, but that doesn't extend to people taking whatever action they feel like, whenever they feel like and ignoring the rest of the community.

If these lawless protestors aren't deterred by QLD Labor's weak legislation, then they should at least pay the cost of calling out Emergency Services. That's why I wrote to Police Minister Mark Ryan, to make sure tax-payers aren't footing the bill for these activists' illegal and dangerous behaviour.

If you think the Government should 'Make the Protestors Pay' the cost of calling out Emergency Services, please sign the petition below.
