Bob Carnegie Defence Campaign: London activists protest as court case continues

Submitted by AWL on 26 March, 2013 - 1:01

The Federal Magistrates Court in Brisbane, Australia, will hear further submissions on Tuesday 2 April in the case of victimised trade unionist Bob Carnegie.

Bob faces charges brought against him by construction contractor Abigroup, backed by the right-wing Queensland state government, because of his role in a successful construction workers' dispute in August-October 2012. If he is found guilty, he faces a huge fine and a possible jail sentence.

On 11 February, the day his trial began, construction workers and dock workers across Australia walked off the job, shutting down construction sites and the port of Sydney for the day.

On Friday 22 March, supporters in London demonstrated outside Queensland House (the UK offices of the Queensland government) and the Australian High Commission.
