Men of colours stand united in face of bikie bill

THE public relations war between the bikies and the Government has begun in earnest.

Bikies from 16 outlaw bikie gangs roared through Moore Park yesterday to protest against the crime bill that threatens to outlaw them all. The "freedom ride" is the latest attempt to swing public opinion against the State Government's Criminal Organisations Legislation Amendment Bill.

The bill, enacted following the fatal brawl at Sydney Airport between the Comanchero and the Hells Angels in March, is designed to outlaw alleged criminal groups.

Scenes unthinkable six months ago - Finks talking to Hells Angels, Rebels talking to Bandidos - became the norm as the members milled around while photographers and cameramen moved among them. Police in a dozen highway patrol and unmarked cars observed the bikies.

Authorities also closed the air space above the ride, forcing television helicopters to move out of the area.

A spokesman for the motorcycle clubs, known only as Ferret, said: "This bill involves every person in NSW.

"If people get out there and read the law they'll realise what it's about."
