The Liberal Nationals will today re-introduce move-on laws into the Upper House to ensure police have the powers they need to deal with disruptive protestors.
Extremist protesters have for months disrupted Melbourne’s CBD, blocking streets and causing mayhem for people just trying to go about their day.
Despite this Daniel Andrews has failed to act and give police the powers they need.
In the Lower House yesterday Daniel Andrews refused to allow the Liberal Nationals to introduce a law that would back police to deal with disruptive and extreme protestors.
The Liberal Nationals remain committed to ensuring that police have the powers they need to ensure Victorians can go about their day.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Police, David Southwick:
“We support the right to protest but no one has the right to shut down the CBD and create chaos.”
“One of Daniel Andrews’ first acts as Premier was to repeal Victoria’s move-on laws, stripping police of the powers they need deal with disruptive protests.
“Everyday that Daniel Andrews refuses to move-on laws, is another day that community safety in Victoria is at risk.”
