Keep Sydney Open Reveals Fuck-Off Huge Nighttime Rally W/ Flight Facilities

After a mammoth year, the Keep Sydney Open campaign has announced its most ambitious protest yet – a night-time takeover of Kings Cross itself, featuring born-and-bred Sydneysiders / boog-lords Flight Facilities. 

In a video announcement, Keep Sydney Open’s Tyson Koh said the Saturday January 21 event will “change the course of this city,” in the hopes of totally rescinding the late-night lockout laws Sydney has adopted.

This protest comes just after the Mike Baird government relaxed the laws under a two-year trial program. The trial permits select venues to keep serving alcohol until 3:30am, half an hour later than the original 3:00am cutoff. 
According to Koh, that change won’t amount to much in terms of preserving the city’s nightlife and late-night businesses, so this protest is for punters to “demand better” from the folks in charge. 
Also in contention: the 1:30am / 2:00 am lockouts, and the takeaway alcohol ban after 11:00pm. 
The protest kicks off from 9:00pm – 12:00am. If you’re about it, check out the deets here.
