Australia becomes a police state [serious]

A bill was passed last night in Australia, enabling a "lawful" NSW
police state (http://www.sydney.indymedia.org).
If i am in a designated "target area", I may be raided
as I type, the person raiding me need not identify themselves. I may
be strip searched, my possesions may be seized and disposed..
If i resist, I may be imprisoned for 2 years..
At this point in time.. I've decided the only course of action is to
go back to Sydney, and voice some political dissent - for a police
state is not the Australia I know, or wish to be part of.
