  • Description

    Violence on the streets of Brisbane, Australia, intensified on Sunday (5 March) when students and police fought pitched battles during a demonstration supporting the right to march. In the past six months, students have protested against new State laws banning street marches and demonstrations imposed by the government of Queensland's Premier John Bjelke-Peterson. Hundreds have been arrested in demonstrations the likes of which have not been seen since the Vietnam war. Stephen Kemp of the Australian Broadcasting Commission reports on the latest march which followed a student meeting in central Brisbane.
