Keep Queensland Open Rally says

Due to police concerns for attendee safety we have had to move the location and start time of the Keep Queensland Open Rally.

The Rally will now be held at Reddacliff Place, RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE CASINO AT 2PM SHARP!

We will be able to express our opposition to Labor’s lockout laws in front of the only venue they are willing to protect and foster in the interests of the gambling industry.

More details on performers and speakers to follow in the coming 7 days.


Join us for a peaceful protest in Fortitude Valley on the final weekend before the lives of venue operators, workers, and law abiding citizens are changed forever.

Guest speakers will address the crowd and a march will commence from New Farm Park to Fortitude Valley. The march will descend across the Valley, past The Flying Cock, down to Capulet, over to Sabotage, and GPO.

Lock outs are proven to do only one thing -send venues to the wall in a very quick fashion.

Serious concerns remain as to why the Casinos in Queensland are exempt from these laws. Do we really want future problem gamblers funneled to the casino when there is nothing else open late at night?

We demand intelligent policy from the state government, rather than 'lazy' blanket laws that punish everybody.

I urge venues that are able to trade to 3-5 to to please keep your doors open - we as an industry can show our goverment that we can both trade and party safely.

At this point we are very much in the planning process and are open to any suggestions you might have.

See you on a safe night out soon.
