  • Description

    In Australia, police arrested about 170 people at the weekend (11 and 12 November) after charging into a crowd in the Queensland state capital of Brisbane. Violence erupted as several thousand supporters of Australia's former Labour Prime Minister gouge Whitlam came face to face with police in defiance of a state law banning political street marches. The demonstrations came on the eve of state election, and marked the second anniversary of the sacking of the Whitlam government. In the elections conservative Premier Jo Bjelke-Petersen's strong line against protest groups is a major issue. A report by Des McWilliam, of Channel O, Brisbane.
