No Curfew will be hosting three coordinated, peaceful assemblies to ensure Queenslanders have their voice heard in response to the State Government’s plan to introduce a statewide 1:00am venue lockout and 3:00am cessation of drink service.
The Save Our Nightlife assemblies will be held on Saturday the 19th of September in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, Gold Coast’s Surfers Paradise, and Airlie Beach. The assemblies will include speeches and performances from industry workers, musicians and politicians who oppose the proposed legislation.
No Curfew spokesperson Alex Ghiculescu says it is important that those who responsibly enjoy the nightlife, as well as those who make a living from it, are heard as these proposals come before parliament.
“99.99% of Queenslanders enjoy a night out without either committing a crime, or becoming a victim of crime. The State Government’s proposal is set to punish the majority of late night venue patrons, who do abide by the law.”
A parliamentary petition will also be launched at the assemblies, giving further voice to those who oppose this type of legislation.
“Local councils in Brisbane, Cairns, Airlie Beach, Townsville and Gold Coast have all come out strongly against these proposals,” says Mr Ghiculescu.
“We want to celebrate our nightlife, and stand up for the Queensland community, young and old, who enjoy a night out, and those who have built their careers around this important part of our local fabric.”
