Queensland police document pro-Palestinian protesters


Police in Queensland photographed peaceful pro-Palestinian protesters in Logan in December 2023 and recorded the licence plate numbers of cars displaying Palestinian flags. When politicians and others objected, police defended the practice by saying that some threats require "significant threat and risk assessments" and that recording people and vehicles using body-worn cameras, mobile devices, and other means is normal practice.
