Damning police report launched – Beeliar protesters call for investigation

Tuesday, 16 May 2017 - 9:30am to 10:00am

Phil Evans is joined by counterAct's Nicola Paris to discuss policing around the campaign to save Beeliar Wetlands from the Roe8 Highway extension in WA and a recent community report. The report published by the legal support team for the Beeliar protests documents over twenty incidents of excessive use of force, unlawful use of pepper spray, injuries from horses, tasers threatening minors, unlawful arrests, innocent people being strip searched and a culture of aggression and violence towards community activists.

[Warning: some viewers may find the reports of violence by police upsetting].
