"The police have given broad support for the Wikileaks protest. We are not trying to waste police time, or taxpayers' money or inconvenience city users," Serkowski, who is also secretary to the Pirate Party, said.
"We have lodged a notice with the police well in advance of the required time to notify them of a protest."
The organisers missed the seven-day deadline to notify NSW Police of the December protest, and Serkowski said that the document, lodged four days before the event, was misplaced by police and only discovered 24 hours in advance.
Central Metropolitan Region assistant commissioner Mark Murdoch then sent a letter (PDF) to Serkowski stating the police opposition to the first protest.
