The NSW Supreme Court has ruled that a protest march against Sydney’s lockout laws cannot go ahead in Kings Cross tomorrow night.
The police went to court to oppose tomorrow’s planned demonstration that was being organised by the Keep Sydney Open group, which spearheaded opposition against the laws after they were introduced in 2014.
The laws have forced licensed venues in the city’s CBD and Kings Cross to close their doors at 1:30am and last drinks to be poured at 3:00am.
The measures were put in place after a spate of fatal one–punch attacks in the area.
More to come.
