In 1988 the Hobart City Council banned the Tasmanian Gay Law Reform Group's stall at Salamanca Market. When supporters of the stall refused to leave they were ordered arrested for trespass. Over 7 weeks 130 arrests were made in what remains Australia's biggest act of gay rights civil disobedience. The Lord Mayor on 10 December 2008 hosted a Council reception organised by the Greater Hobart Community Liaison Committee of the Coming Out Proud Program at which he offered an apology on behalf of the Council. In this video, Rodney Croome (spokesperson and arrestee) accepts the apology for himself and the Tasmanian Gay and Lesbian Rights Group and asks everyone else to decide in their own hearts whether to accept it as well.
