Civil Disobedience is a necessary element of bringing about positive change and standing up against the wrongful behaviour, secrecy, deceit, and non-transparency of Government, big Corporations, Multinationals, Arms Dealers, Environmental Vandals (refer back to the Govt, Corps, MultiNats, Arms Dealers, etc). Our SlutWalkHobart 2012 was technically an act of Civil Disobedience — as Tas Police told us not to do it, that we did not have their support, that if anything went wrong or if anyone got hurt that it was all going to be on the shoulders of one young 22 y/o organising committee member because she was the liaison person, that we had no permit, etc….and yet we had the support of organisations and people such as Amnesty International Australia, Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner Robin Banks, and Minister Cassy O’Connor. Sometimes, Civil Disobedience isn’t just necessary, it becomes a Civil Obligation of Responsible Citizens!!!
