Rally to defend Bob Carnegie

Submitted by Matthew on 30 January, 2013 - 11:51

Supporters of victimised Australian trade unionist Bob Carnegie will rally outside the Federal Magistrates Court in Brisbane on Monday 11 February, as the first of the cases against Bob begins.

Bob appears accused on 54 criminal charges relating to his role in the nine-week-long community protest at the Queensland Children’s Hospital in August-October 2012. For more information on the rally, see here.

The campaign is asking supporters to email messages of support to be read out at the rally to defendbobcarnegie@gmail.com.

Labour movement support for Bob continues to grow, with Maritime Union of Australia members at the Patrick container terminal in Sydney’s Port Botany passing a resolution backing the campaign, and agreeing a $20-per-member levy to raise funds.
