Napthine's Silencing Act

Help stop Premier Napthine from silencing Victorians. Sign the petition here.

 

The Premier is introducing amendments to the Summary Offences Act to crack down on protests and remove the protection for Victorians' right to peaceful assembly. 

Napthine's Silencing Act: 

  • Removes protections for peaceful assembly
  • Up to two year imprisonment for persons returning to a banned protest or picket
  • Police and PSO discretion to ‘move on’ protests

We call on the Premier to reconsider the need for these amendments, given the overwhelmingly peaceful nature of Victoria's protest movements.
