Labor wants fines increased for people who attend a second COVID lockdown protest in Sydney | 7NEWS

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Labor wants fines increased for people who attend a second COVID lockdown protest in Sydney | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

NSW Labor MP Walt Secord wants new fines introduced to deter people from attending this Saturday’s planned lockdown protest.

He says increased fines will “smash those who operate on the fringes through their anti-vaxxer and far right-wing networks”.

His proposal would have protest organisers fined $20,000, those sharing protest information online fined $11,000 and attendees hit with $5000 fines.
