Call Dreyfus: Protect our Right to Protest

Stand Up for Our Right to Peaceful Protest - Call Mark Dreyfus Now

(03) 9580 4651

Throughout history, everyday people have taken part in peaceful protests like rallies to stand up for the issues they care about - like climate change, womens rights or land rights. But legislation about to hit the Parliament could criminalise those participating in peaceful protests to defend our future and human rights. [1]

Right now, Members of Parliament need to feel the weight of public pressure to amend this Bill, which could see people given a prison sentence for holding a peaceful rally outside an MP’s office.

As Shadow Attorney-General, Mark Dreyfus is a key decision-maker in determining how the Labor Party votes when this legislation hits the Parliament.

We’ve put together some talking points that you can use on the phone:

  • Hi, my name is xxx and I’m from xxx.
  • I’m calling because I’m concerned about the potential impact of “Espionage and Foreign Interference Bill” on the rights of everyday Australians to peaceful protest and freedom of expression.
  • I wanted to pass on a message for Mr Dreyfus to please amend this Bill to make sure that peaceful protest is not criminalised.

Let us know how you go!
