Thou shalt not annoy on Youth Day SMH July 1, 2008.

Extraordinary new powers will allow police to arrest and fine people for "causing annoyance" to Catholic World Youth Day participants and permit partial strip searches at hundreds of Sydney sites, beginning today.

The laws, which operate until the end of July, have the potential to make a crime of wearing a T-shirt with a message on it, undertaking a Chaser-style stunt, handing out condoms at protests, riding a skateboard or even playing music, critics say.

Police and volunteers from the State Emergency Service and Rural Fire Service will be able to direct people to cease engaging in conduct that "causes annoyance or inconvenience to participants in a World Youth Day event".

People who fail to comply will be subject to a $5500 fine.

The president of the NSW Bar Association, Anna Katzmann, SC, described the regulations as "unnecessary and repugnant".


Catholic World Youth Day will be held in Sydney from

Tuesday 15 to Sunday 20 July 2008.


As listed below, 93 NSW State Schools in the Sydney metropolitan area will be home for World Youth Day 2008 pilgrims.

(As at 20 June 2008)
