Peaceful protest made illegal in NSW

I find it unconscionable that the NSW Government led by Mike Baird with the support of The National Party have lifted the fines for peacefully protesting against mining including coal seam gas.

The fine has been raised from $550 to $5500, despite widespread opposition to coal seam gas mining.

At the same time they have reduced the fines for companies who illegally mine from $1.1 million to just $5000.

See what they've done there? It's now the same penalty to protest destroying our environment as it is to be penalised for undertaking the destruction without permission!
