L. McNamara & J. Quilter, 'Greater police powers and penalties threaten civil liberties in NSW for public safety' (2016) (8 April) The Conversation 1-3.

Abstract

They represent just the latest round of expanded police powers and higher criminal penalties justified in the name of “public safety”. The government’s solution is to let police decide who has the right to protest.
