Liberty Victoria condemns police action at Occupy Melbourne protest

6 December 2011 Liberty Victoria today condemned police interference with Occupy Melbourne demonstrators in the Flagstaff Gardens this morning, 6 December 2011. At approximately 8.30 am, several police officers approached a female demonstrator who was wearing a small tent.

This appeared to be the demonstrator’s way of protesting against an instruction by Melbourne City Council that no tents should be permitted in the Gardens.
