Loved Ones Launch #DoingIt4Allison Campaign To Protest Baden-Clay Verdict

The decision handed down by the Queensland Court of Appeal last week – the one that saw Gerard Baden-Clay‘s original verdict of murder downgraded to manslaughter due to circumstantial evidence surrounding intent – has not been a very popular one to say the least.

Though the minutiae of the law dictates that it has to react to evidence in a largely unemotional fashion, the reality is that seeing a man previously convicted of murdering his wife and disposing of her body having his verdict downgraded to a lesser charge is bound to evoke an emotional response.
The family and friends of Allison Baden-Clay have, to that end, announced a rally to be held in Allison’s memory that will show public solidarity for the fight against domestic violence, as well as attempt to compel Queensland’s Acting Attorney General Cameron Dick to launch a challenge to the decision handed down by the Court of Appeal.
The #doingit4allison campaign launched just over 24 hours ago, and has already attracted significant public interest and media attention.
The planned rally is scheduled for 12:15pm Brisbane time, at King George Square. Attendees are being encouraged to wear yellow in support of the fight against domestic violence.
More information about the #doingitforallison campaign can be found at the organisation’s website.
