The Supreme Court decided yesterday to grant an injunction against the march route proposed by the Stop Bush Coalition, a route that would have taken the protest straight to police lines.
In granting the injunction, the judge noted that the involvement of groups such as Arterial Bloc, Mutiny, FLARE in the Void, the Socialist Party and the Alliance for Civil Disobedience Coordination (AC/DC) in the march meant that the probability of violence was high. Weighing the risk of public safety against the right of protesters to freedom of political communication, the court decided that the danger posed to person and property was too great. But just how dangerous are these dastardly fiends? Here’s a quick bio on each of the groups.
