Re: Australia becomes a police state [serious]

Sounds like Queensland pre Wayne Goss. I got in a _lot_ of trouble with the Special Branch in those days. They had those sort of powers, the only recourse you had was that if they tore your house/gear apart 3 times in 6 months without an arrest you could go them for harrassment. Typically I'd get raided, then again in 3 months, then again in 3 months and 1 day. We could predict the _exact_ day we'd be raided, as they made a point of not having 3 raids within any 6 month period.

Hello..

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.
