Move on orders as a strategy to criminalise legitimate dissent and protest

Just one day after WA Police and the City of Perth used military like tactics to enforce a move on order against Aboriginal people reclaiming their land at Herrission Island, the WA Police have used move on orders against citizens protesting illegal logging and destruction of flora and fauna near Dardnaup.

This continues the pattern of WA Police and government authorities using move on orders to criminalise lawful protest and dissent to protect and advance the economic interests of the corporate, moneyed and political elite.
