The episode of The Feed will air next Tuesday

SBS current affairs program The Feed will be airing a lockouts special next Tuesday, as we're days off from another protest to be held in Sydney and the announcement that the NSW government would finally be sitting down with lockout activists.

The special, to be aired 7.30pm on Tuesday, 22 March, will see the contentious issue debated by panel guests such as Keep Sydney Open's Tyson Koh, State Senator David Leyonhjelm, Michael Christie, father of coward punch victim Daniel Christie, and Anthony Lynham, Queensland Minister for State Development and maxillofacial surgeon. 

Also taking part in the forum will be St Vincent's Hospital general and vascular surgeon Tony Grabs and Helen Crossing, Convener of the Kings Cross Residents Association.

Funnily enough, the panel will take place in a Kings Cross pub and will be live-streamed to The Feed's Facebook page. They'll also be taking questions to be posed at the forum.

The discussion is not just pertinent to those living in Sydney but to those in Brisbane, who are facing similar lockout laws from 1 July this year. Sydney's lockout laws are due to be reviewed very soon.
