Once again, thousands of protesters have hit Sydney’s streets to voice their disapproval of the NSW government’s eternally-maligned lockout laws.

For the most part though, protesters on-scene were there to straight-up rip on the government for championing a set of rules that have been called damaging, draconian, and thoroughly disadvantageous to the majority of the city’s residents – while exempting what has been labeled the most violent venue in the state.
In a previous statement, Reclaim The Streets said “these casinos have brought their way into a free pass, while at the same time funnelling all of the late night trade into their highly lucrative gambling halls.”
“We are marching to the casino to highlight the gross hypocrisy of the government and the craven interests of The Star and Crown Casino.”
Fortunately, if today’s protest/art exhibit/rolling music festival is anything to go by, support for the cause is still growing. Oh, and protesters are down to literally heap shit on the casino now.
