Motion text

That the Senate—

[...]

(b) condemns the actions and hypocrisy of extremist protestors, including:

(i) a husband and wife who, despite being arrested nine times combined, blocked trucks leaving a concrete business that had urgent works to complete at a local nursing home,

(ii) a 20 year old unemployed protestor who, despite growing up and living in his family's lavish waterside mansion on the Sunshine Coast, glued himself to a Brisbane central business district road, causing disruptions for tens of thousands of Qld workers,

(iii) the numerous protestors who have attacked and disrupted small businesses which have contracts for the construction of the Carmichael Mine and are employing hard-working Queenslanders, and

(iv) the comments made by Brisbane City Council Greens councillor, Cr Jonathan Sri, who has praised the "effective tactics" used by the Extinction Rebellion protestors, noting particularly that "As a politician I'm telling you that supporting disruptive civil disobedience and general strikes is probably your best option".
