7pm Wednesday 14 June, Parliament House [NEW VENUE!!], Brisbane ~ Speakers: Mick Palmer [Former Commissioner, Australian Federal Police], Keith Hamburger [Former D-G, Qld Corrective Services], Desmond Manderson [ANU]

“What we now have is badly broken, ineffective and even counterproductive to the harm minimisation aims of Australia’s national illicit drugs policy,” said Mr Palmer. “We must be courageous enough to consider a new and different approach.” On June 14, the Kurilpa Citizen and the Qld Council for Civil Liberties sponsor a discussion on solutions to Australia’s failed drugs policy at Parliament House [NB new venue] by Mick Palmer, Keith Hamburger and Desmond Manderson.
