“We the undersigned call on Abigroup to drop the proceedings against Bob Carnegie”.
Bob Carnegie, community protest organiser in the August-October 2012 dispute on the Queensland Children’s Hospital construction site in Brisbane, is being sued by the main contractor, Abigroup.
Abigroup is suing for contempt on the grounds that Bob defied a court order which they got, instructing him to stay away from the community protest. The next court hearing is on 11-13 February 2013; legal advice is that the case will run for several months. The charges could lead to fines of up to $400,000, and maybe a jail sentence. Abigroup is also bringing a separate court case for damages.
The secretary of the campaign is Tom Bramble, who can be contacted at P O Box 298, Corinda, Qld 4075; email@example.com; or 0413293101 (+61413293101 from outside Australia).
Please return petition to Secretary, PO Box 298, Corinda, Qld 4075
