  • Extract from the Summary Offences Amendment (Moveon Laws) Bill 2015 – 24 February – Russell Northe
    line of these disputes are able to have tools available to them to use for that purpose Going back to when the coalition introduced the previous legislation into the Parliament it seems that Labor failed to recognise the intent of the act and is now winding back powers and simply showing no regard for lawabiding people going about their business I will refer to part of the secondreading speech when the AttorneyGeneral at the time noted that The bill continues to protect legitimate rights to lawful protest or demonstration He also said the new powers were a useful tool for safeguarding the peaceful enjoyment of public places by all as well as defusing situations that threaten public order and safety The Labor government is strongly suggesting that those changes somehow compromised the ability of people to undertake peaceful protest That is simply not the case The shadow AttorneyGeneral vocally put the case that the legislation the coalition introduced simply allowed people to undertake those peaceful protests People should absolutely have the right to do that but when you are intruding on and compromising people s livelihoods and the business activities not only of business owners but staff members as well then that is not good enough I had a look at some of the secondreading debate that took place on 20 February 2014 when the coalition brought on those particular amendments to the Summary Offences Act 1966 The former member for Bass had a fair bit to say at the time he was certainly vocal which makes for interesting reading He referred to pinkos commos those from Trades Hall Council and Lygon Street and the John Setkas of the world and their influence on the Labor Party and those industrial disputes It made for quite entertaining reading When the then AttorneyGeneral summed up the secondreading debate on the Summary Offences and Sentencing Amendment Bill he reiterated that the amendments did not inhibit people s ability to undertake peaceful protest That has been said over and over again but the only argument the Labor Party can now put to us is to say that we were threatening those rights The laws introduced by the coalition simply did not do that and that is why we are opposing the bill before us today The Australian Financial Review of 11 February talks about the introduction of the bill we are debating here today and it talks about police being able to have tools to move on people It also says The CFMEU was embroiled in a bitter dispute against construction giant Grocon in 2012 which led to a 16day blockade of the Myer Emporium site In the same article Radley de Silva from Masters Builders Association Victoria MBAV says the moveon laws introduced by the coalition had been a strong deterrent against unchecked obstructive protests in the construction sector He went on to say that that Grocon dispute brought the city to a grinding halt We simply cannot afford for that to happen

  • Members statement – Black Saturday bushfires – 10 February 2015 – Russell Northe
    communities the emotion and grief is still very raw Within the Morwell electorate the impact of the Black Saturday bushfires and the preceding Delburn complex of fires in January of 2009 was profound Hundreds of homes were razed assets were lost stock was destroyed and wildlife was devastated Tragically 11 people were killed locally Last Saturday was an opportunity to remember reflect and mourn those loved ones On the day I was pleased to join with many local bereaved families in the opening of a memorial space in Victory Park Traralgon The memorial is located in a beautiful setting and it was wonderful to witness many families in attendance providing love and support for each other Whilst it is difficult to know precisely what to say to those families still grieving I can say that our community will continue to offer its support prayers and best wishes Monday 9 February was also the first anniversary of the Morwell mine fire which caused significant distress amongst our local community in particular for Morwell residents I wish to commend our emergency services personnel for their extraordinary dedication and courage during the period of the mine fire In addition one can only admire the resilience of our community and the efforts of our community leaders in times of adversity Whether it be in Boolarra Yinnar Traralgon South Jeeralang Morwell or other towns that have endured traumatic events our local leaders have really shone through when needed Share this post Facebook Twitter Google LinkedIn Related posts Morwell electorate funding Tuesday 12 April 2016 April 13 2016 Members Statement Country Fire Authority district 27 Tuesday 22 March 2016 March 30 2016 Members Statement V Line services Tuesday 23 February 2016 March 4 2016 Upcoming Community Events Latrobe City Calendar of Events May 2016 April 28
