Passage of dangerous bail laws marks start of major campaign

MEDIA RELEASE

Friday 22 March 2024

The Aboriginal Legal Service NSW/ACT says that the passage of dangerous youth justice laws through the NSW Parliament last night marks the beginning of a major campaign that will not end until the laws are scrapped. 

“We are drawing a line in the sand. We cannot accept an Australia that puts children in jail instead of evidence-based policy that actually makes communities safer,” ALS CEO Karly Warner said.

"This is the beginning, not the end of our advocacy."

“Time will show that these laws will increase crime and make communities more dangerous. We won’t stop until this betrayal of vulnerable children and of Closing the Gap is overturned and replaced with the solutions that actually make a difference.

“This is the beginning, not the end, of our advocacy,” Ms Warner said.
