More and more studies are confirming what we know: lockouts around the world shuffle the problem around, and punish us all instead of making us safer.

The evidence is with us, the tide has turned, even members of the NSW government are agitating to roll lockouts back. Vote Keep Sydney Open at the next election to put an end to the scare campaigns once and for all.
