After having a massive protest knocked back last month, anti-lockout advocates Keep Sydney Open (KSO) have revealed the location for its replacement – and they’ve promised it’ll be even bigger than the scuttled Kings Cross event.
The new protest will take place on Saturday February 18 at Martin Place, between 12pm and 3pm. Keen punters have been advised to start writing them signs, pronto.
(ICYMI, they ruled KSO couldn’t field the event due to a lack of security personnel, evacuation plans, insurance and the like. KSO took issue with that ruling, saying they’d never been asked to provide those at prior protests.)
“We’re not only fighting the lockouts and for Sydney’s vibrancy but also for the right to protest and be heard on the streets of OUR city.”
