Over 8,000 protesters have rallied in Brisbane today against the Abbott government, in one of the biggest protests to hit the state in many years.

    The mainstream media has completely avoided reporting this march. Newman is now controlling the mass media. This video shows a member being harassed by the QPS. They said to him that it was illegal to wear colours in Queensland. It is not . It is illegal only if there are three or more members in public. Clearly he was on his own. Also a protester gets hit by a patrol car. No mention of this anywhere, apart from social media. This is the link on youtube-

    I was falsely arrested a few weeks ago because of QPS ignorance of the VLAD law. . I was cuffed for wearing colours. They then realised that it is only illegal if there is three or more , I was on my own,they made a mistake and uncuffed me. The QPS do not know the law that they are enforcing. This is the video footage of my arrest- And here you can clearly hear the officer say why he is arresting me and here I resume videoing after they took the cuffs off and gave me my phone back

    The issue I had with them is one officer not identifying himself. They took exception to my insistence for that officer to identify himself. Keep up your honest reporting Angelo Garozzo
