Mayor condemns rider’s actions

Isaac Region Mayor Anne Baker has this afternoon condemned the actions of a lone horse rider who injured a woman while attempting to disrupt a Stop Adani Convoy protest rally at Clermont’s showgrounds.

“This act is deplorable and I condemn it in the strongest of terms,” Mayor Baker said.

“We made it absolutely clear from the outset that disruptive behaviour from any party or person would not be tolerated.

“This rider has ignored the shared expectation for an environment of mutual respect.

“I expect they will face the full force of the law for their actions and the injury caused.

“Our thoughts are with the injured woman and we wish her a speedy recovery.

“This rogue act by an individual does not reflect the community of Clermont or the wider Isaac region.

“Council remains in contact with the Bob Brown Foundation as this situation continues to evolve.”
