Tim Buchannan, Jason Ray, Samantha Hawker, Hannah Grant, Phil Evans, Chamomilla Hill and Sally Hunter are facing charges of “intentionally damaging commonwealth property”, which carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in jail.

 

Two others, Pat Holmes and Kat Woskett, faced lesser charges from the second day of protests, when they abseiled down the front of Parliament house with a banner reading “Close the Bloody Camps Now #Justice4Refugees”. They were find $1500 each.

For more on why we interrupted, check out our Op Ed published in The Guardian, the statement released by those on trial following our previous court appearance, and our mic check from the public gallery.

 

We maintain our innocence in the matter before the Supreme Court. This is a humanitarian crisis. This is a state of emergency.
