There are two young political protestors who have been fighting the good cause for all of humanity. Kane and Ilaina have been on the frontline for more than two years, trying to bring awareness to others that our political system is not here for us.
Just recently, they were arrested on Parliament lawns in Canberra and accused of trespass. They have been politically protesting against the so called “democracy” we live under, abiding by the rules laid out.
They were not on the lawns to camp, but to protest. They have been targeted by having their vehicle taken, their possessions also taken and trumped-up charges placed upon them.
They both just recently faced court against these charges. It has now been adjourned as the Attorney General has decided he would like to prosecute them with ‘trespass on commonwealth land.’
A Sydney based lawyer has now jumped on board and will help them with this fight. The federal government is looking to make an example out of these two who have done nothing but voice their opinion.
On the 19th of April, Kane and Ilaina will have a fight upon not just their own hands, but one for all of Australians.
A fund is being set up to help the costs to fight this battle. This battle is one that will affect everyone of us.
If we cannot voice our opinion without being arrested or charged, it will be the end of democracy and the end of freedom for all.
The end of protesting, the overreach of government control of our lives and we might even end up like countries who are not keen on dissent towards the ruling elite.
Making a stand in your personal beliefs is a part of a democratic country. Once we lose that part of society, we have lost what makes us a free country.
