The IPA With You Episode 12: Say No To Dan’s New Stasi

Written by

If you think things are bad in Victoria at the moment, you should be really worried about the new Dan Andrew Stasi. Under a bill before the Victorian government, Andrews could soon appoint anybody he wants as ‘authorised officers’ under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act. That means that union leaders, Labor Party officials and neighbourhood spies could soon have the power to detain you indefinitely without trial. We talk about what Dan’s Stasi bill could mean for you, and what can be done to stop it. We also speak to IPA Director of Communications Evan Mulholland, who comes on to share some brighter news from the free and democratic state of New South Wales.
