A Queensland court has upheld the rights of civil liberties protesters to march through the streets of Brisbane on Wednesday morning, after the LNP-led city council attempted to refuse authorisation because it would disrupt traffic.

The Queensland chief magistrate, Terry Gardiner, ruled that he was not satisfied the council’s bid to refuse permission on grounds the protest would cause significant public disturbance “was reasonable … in a democratic society”.

The march was organised by the Brisbane Greens councillor Jonathan Sri in response to proposed state laws and other attempts to crack down on the right to peaceful protest. The court heard the demonstration will be on the roadway for about 15 minutes between the Queen Street Mall and the state parliament.
Sri told the Brisbane magistrates court the case brought by the LNP council was “politically motivated”, citing social media posts by the lord mayor, Adrian Schrinner, that he would not let residents “fall victim to green extremists” trying to disrupt their lives.

“It’s essentially a protest about the right to protest,” Sri told the court.
