Oz Cops Colluding With Un-Australian Reds?


Sent on, with no need to comment.

I went to cover the anti-Australia Day protests. I went peacefully, as a fully-accredited journalist. I had cameramen with me and even a small security detail — because I wanted to do real journalism.

But police wouldn’t have any of it. Without any reasonable grounds, they physically grabbed me, pulled me away from my team, and threw me in the back of a police van.

They let me keep my phone, which is how I’m writing to you now. But I am literally in police custody as I write this. Here’s a quick video I just filmed:

Please help me out. I have managed to get a message to my lawyer — we’ve been through this before, and we suspected that it might happen again. My instructions to her were simple: get me out of police custody and get me back doing public interest journalism!

Thanks very much.

I’ll send you another note as soon as I’m out of this police van.

Yours hopefully,

P.S. It’s absurd. I wasn’t protesting. I was peacefully reporting on an anti-Australia Day protest. It was the far-left mobs that threatened me. So why did police arrest me — instead of them?

P.P.S. But we’re prepared. Our lawyers are working on this right now — please click here to help if you can. We have to let them know that they can’t silence us.
