EDO LawJam5: Development, Corruption, Democracy. What the changes to the CMC mean for you

29 May, 2014

The Queensland Government is proposing to remove long-standing community rights to object to new mines and also proposes controversial changes to the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC).

Earlier this week EDO Qld held a special LawJam, 'Development, Corruption, Democracy: What the changes to the Crime and Misconduct Commission mean for you.'

This free public meeting, featuring Jo Bragg and special guest speaker Stephen Keim SC, discussed how the Queensland Government makes decisions on urban development and major mining projects, the proposed removal of your legal rights to participate and actions you can take.

Environmental Defenders Office Queensland (EDO Qld) gives a strong legal voice to the environment when needed most.
