VLAD (Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment)

I know states are able to set their own laws and they are valid until challenged in a higher court (case in point gay marriage in ACT which got overturned when challenged by the government)

The Queensland VLAD (Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment) Bill whilst rather popular also sets an incredibly dangerous precedent and given that my own state is looking to bring in something similar I am concerned and surprised that this has yet to be challenged in a higher court of law.

Whilst I am a law abiding citizen and would fall into the realms of having nothing to fear as touted by this government once upon a time I actually would have. A guy I worked for did house designs for members of a bikie organisaiton (actually pretty good blokes). Now if I went out for a beer with them and there happened to be another member I would find myself arrested and placed in solitary confinement without bail until such point I was tried which I would hopefully be found not guilty but I would be basically branded as dangerous and deprived of my liberty until that point.

Australia is a signatory to the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights of which one key point was the freedom of association.

This law basically controls who is able to associate with whom and where, whilst I know we do not have guaranteed liberties and freedoms in our constitution (most are implied under common law) this does place us against the declaration we are a signatory for.

Given all our effort to get on the security council you would think that we would want to conform overall with the mandates set by the UN, however this and our recent being found guilty of 150 violations of our treatment of asylum seekers I guess not.

We should just start trading with North Korea, about the only real Fuck You we have left.
