Our strength and resilience has ensured better policing

(by Alex Greenwich, 28 January 2014, Star Observer)

THE LGBTI community has again shown our resilience and capacity for collective action to get reform.

Less than 12 months ago, we saw distressing footage of cases involving police and Mardi Gras parade observers, with many alleging that police used a heavy-handed approach in dealing with Bryn Hutchinson, Jamie Jackson and others.

Both Bryn and Jamie had charges laid against them. Both faced the court system yet both have had their charges either dismissed or withdrawn.
