Lex Wootton free but under a ban order

 Lex Wotton, a 41 year old indigenous man from Palm Island in northern Australia, sentenced to six years jail in November 2008 for inciting a riot, was recently released on parole.

The riot erupted after the release of a post-mortem examination on a local indigenous man, Mulrunji Doomadgee, who had died while in police custody.

Lex's parole conditions are unprecedented as he is banned from attending public meetings or speaking to the media. Lex's supporters have vowed to fight on.
