The Civil Liberties Co-ordinating Committee (Queensland) (C.L.C.C.) was formed shortly after the Premier of Queensland, Joh Bjelke-Petersen, introduced a ban on marches on 4 September 1977. It began as a small university-based group (University of Queensland). On 15 September 1977 a meeting of 700 people at The University of Queensland resulted in the formation of the C.L.C.C. It aimed to directly defy the ban as well as other forms of action to improve civil rights.
