Two student activists have won a court challenge to special World Youth Day laws that allowed police to detain people or fine them $5,500 for annoying or inconveniencing Catholic pilgrims.
No To Pope Coalition members Amber Pike and Rachel Evans took the New South Wales Government to the Federal Court, arguing the laws were unconstitutional because they would make their peaceful protest illegal.

Where there’s been an Earthquake
An undersea earthquake has struck the south-eastern coast of Greece.
The US Geological Survey says the quake measured 6.4 on the Richter scale.
It hit 70 kilometres south-west of the Greek island of Rhodes. (Rhodes, hmm. Listeners who know their history may recall a giant statue, the Colossus of Rhodes which stood across the strait to Rhodes, also fell down when another earthquake hit in ancient times.)
