LNP gets tough on animal extremists


The LNP makes no apologies in going into bat to protect our farmers and their families from extreme animal activists who take advantage of Queensland's weak laws.
Labor's 'soft on crime' approach to protecting our farming families and other lawful businesses from these extremists has failed to address the rising tide of criminal activity.
Sustained public pressure from the LNP over the last 12 months culminated in the Palaszczuk Government finally caving in by increasing the penalties for those extremists who choose to break the law and terrorise our farmers.  However, these new laws still fall well short of what most Queenslanders would consider adequate.
The LNP want to make it very clear – it's ok to protest lawfully and have different opinions, but if you choose to trespass and terrorise our hard-working farmers or choose to block a coal rail line than you can expect to be whacked with the consequences.
It's that simple.
The LNP is serious about protecting Queenslanders from unlawful extremists who do not represent the values of our great state.
The LNP still have a pragmatic and practical private members Bill before Parliament that will bolster of the state's trespass laws with three new offences:

  • Aggravated trespass with a maximum penalty of $13,055 fine or 3 years imprisonment;
  • Serious Criminal Trespass with a maximum penalty $391,650 or 10 years imprisonment; and
  • Organised Trespass which has a maximum penalty of $391,650 or 10 years imprisonment.

It's time for the Palaszczuk Labor Government to get on-board and support our tough new trespass laws.
