Premier Burt and Cabinet to Meet Protestors

Noting the planned assembly on the grounds of the Cabinet Office tomorrow (29 June),  Premier David Burt today confirmed that he and the Cabinet will break from their scheduled meeting to greet those assembled.

Premier Burt said: “The organisers wrote to me last week indicating their intention to assemble peacefully in the grounds of the Cabinet Office and to ask if I would be available to receive documentation from them at 11:30 am.

“Peaceful protest and assembly is the cornerstone of a free society, and I respect the rights of those who intend to be there tomorrow as part of this peaceful gathering. The organisers have asked that the government consider their submissions, and I can assure them that we will do so.”
