On Monday 11 February 2013 Bob Carnegie will be appearing in the Federal Magistrates Court in Brisbane on 54 charges of criminal contempt arising from his role as community leader of the 9-week strike at the Queensland Children’s Hospital construction site in August-October last year.
Construction company AbiGroup, part of the giant Lend Lease group, has brought these charges against Bob in a blatant attempt to victimise anyone lending support to trade unions in disputes with employers. These charges are a clear threat to any community activist.
THE BOB CARNEGIE DEFENCE CAMPAIGN CALLS ON ALL SUPPORTERS OF TRADE UNIONS AND WORKERS’ RIGHTS TO RALLY IN SUPPORT OF BOB AS HE FACES COURT.
Bob’s case is scheduled for 9.30am so people are urged to be outside the Magistrates Court by 8.30am sharp to hear Bob and others (details TBA) speak about the charges he faces and the significance of his case to all those who fight for social justice. The Federal Magistrates Court is in North Quay
TOUCH ONE, TOUCH ALL – BOB STOOD UP FOR US, NOW IT’S OUR TURN TO STAND UP FOR BOB!
