Australia’s Crackdown on Climate Activists

Peaceful protesters can face up to two years in prison. Legislation rammed through parliament by lawmakers that increases fines for protest activity to tens of thousands of dollars. Activists attending a protest can be charged for the costs of police and emergency services.
Unfortunately, this is happening right now in Australia.
With Australia facing an onslaught of record-breaking temperatures, floods, and bushfires in recent years, the climate movement has been growing at a rapid rate.

      It's very unfair for a government to deny its people the right to freedom of expression in a peaceful and civilized manner

        This is quite unfair and ultimately unjust since it'll jeopardize the freedom to protest regardless of the nature and intentions of the protest

                            The leaders in Australia are irresponsible, they are not seriously trying to solve the climate crisis despite the fact that the region is highly affected.
