Max Brenner 19 Cleared

Wonderful news from the Boycott Israel 19 blog:

"The substantive charges against the Max Brenner 19 (besetting and trespass in a public place) have been dismissed this morning in court. Five defendants are however still in court fighting specific charges of resisting arrest and assaulting police. The decision on the substantive charges is nonetheless a big win for our right to protest in public places in Melbourne. We have beaten back their attempt to criminalise dissent and silence the public pro-Palestine voice in Australia." (Substantive charges against Max Brenner protesters dismissed, 23/7/12)
