Stop & Search: Drugs, Cops, Music Festivals and You! (UPSTAIRS)

FREE ENTRY. Doors 6.30 PM

If the Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville gets her way, then music festivals are about to drastically change for the worse.

She wants to extend police powers to make our festivals less safe, less common, and less fun.

Unharm!'s Nevena Spirovska will be hosting an evening upstairs at The Gaso to address the Police Minister’s proposal and teach you about your rights and responsibilities in the context of police searches.

Joining us on the night will be RMIT Legal Studies lecturer Dr Peta Malins; she’ll be speaking about her work around drug policy and police accountability.

As well as Nicholas Ward, who wrote a paper discussing the impact of Operation Safenight on the community.

This event is free but spots are limited (upstairs at The Gaso).
