‘They need to pull their heads in’: Deborah Knight slams ‘fringe’ protesters
Deborah Knight has slammed “fringe” protesters forcing the cancellation of Lifeline’s annual book fair fundraiser on the weekend.
Abuse directed at visitors and volunteers, and the destruction of fences, forced the event to be cancelled as Convoy to Canberra protesters gathered.
Lifeline Canberra General Manager Adam Miller told Deborah Knight the abuse came from “fringe” groups.
Deborah Knight said, “they need to pull their heads in”.
“I will not cop the fringe element from these protesters giving grief to Canberrans, giving grief to businesses.”
