MP Alex Greenwich ‘blames’ 2GB for crackdown on climate activists disrupting traffic
Independent MP Alex Greenwich is holding the media responsible for a crackdown on illegal protesters disrupting Greater Sydney.
The legislation, which would see activists face penalties of up to $22,000 or two years in jail, has passed the lower house.
Independent MP Alex Greenwich opposes the law, saying, “Tonight is the Parliament at its worst. It’s when 2GB and the Daily Telegraph form our policy.”
Roads Minister Natalie Ward told Ben Fordham “this is what the community wants”.
“Anyone that sat in traffic like I did that morning on the Spit Bridge knows that this cannot continue.
“I’m sick of it, the community’s sick of it. We make no apologies for this legislation.”
