On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
Fourteen greyhound trainers linked to live-baiting banned for life
Queensland All Codes Racing Industry Board chairman Kevin Dixon said after considering the issued show cause notices, the board decided to ban the individuals because their conduct meant they were no longer welcome at Queensland racetracks.
Greyhounds that belong to them have been disqualified from competition and will be required to undertake three supervised trials in order to return to racing.
Those banned have been notified of the decision and their right to appeal.
Since ABC’s Four Corners program denounced the live-baiting scandal in February, a total of 20 trainers have been banned as a result of the ensuing investigation.
