NSW Police Force statement on Supreme Court decision

The NSW Supreme Court has prohibited a public assembly planned for Sydney on Tuesday (28 July 2020) due to health and safety concerns associated with COVID-19.

The protest is now unauthorised.

Those thinking of attending – despite the Supreme Court decision and health advice – are strongly urged to reconsider their plans.

While the NSW Police Force recognises and supports the rights of individuals to exercise their right to free speech, large-scale events, such as these, are currently subject to restrictions under the Public Health Act.

As such, police will not hesitate to take the appropriate action, if required.
