Real world examples - a discussion

Examples of a sit in at a bank, a protest outside Coles, and the previous protest within temporary WestConnex barriers are discussed. All could be prosecuted under the Bill.

It is clarified that partial fencing does count as "enclosed land", including with regard to state parks.

The Hon. Trevor Khan raises again the issue between differentiation between interference and hindrance.

Ms Wright gives the example of sitting in front of a cafe. She says that while this action may not aim to cause interference, it does cause hindrance and thus could be prosecuted under the proposed laws. She adds that because there are two words used, they will be required to have different legal meanings.

Ms Walmsley adds that if they are to be considered the same, there is no perceived "point" to the legislation.
