Taxi industry silent protest – TODAY 11:30am
Taxi drivers, owners and operators will descend on Queensland’s Parliament House today for a silent rally to protest the State Government’s ham-fisted new regulations that will lower taxi safety standards and affect over 16,000 small business operators. Taxi Council Queensland has offered its support to this protest.
Where: Parliament House George St Brisbane
Media spokespeople available at rally – including Bill Parker, General Manager Yellow Cabs.
This is a silent rally to show strength in numbers, and disruptive noisy attendees will be asked to leave. Drivers on shift have been asked not to attend so customer services are not disrupted.
