There are calls for harsher penalties to combat the spread of misinformation online, including huge $11,000 fines for posting on social media, amid reports of a second anti-protest rally being planned.
As Covid-19 case numbers continue to surge in NSW, the State Opposition wants tougher, targeted public health orders to crack down on anti-lockdown rally organisers and viral social media spruikers.
These include $11,000 fines for people sharing information on social media about illegal rallies and inciting others to illegally attend.
Under the plan, protest organisers would be slapped with whopping $20,000 fines.
