Rival gang members have been holding meetings and gathering donations, as bikies put rivalries aside to challenge the state’s anti-gang laws in the high court.
Mongol Troy Mercanti is set to lead the charge.
Opponents from 14 gangs are even considering forming a political party to get around crackdowns on socialising, wearing patches and showing tattoos.
In response to the news, Attorney-General John Quigley said “bring it on”, saying the government was “very confident” about the laws based on “good constitutional advice”.
“To register a political party in Canberra you’ve got to supply the names and addresses and contact details of 1500 members,” Quigley said.
“This is going to keep the anti-gang squad busy for a month.
“We’ve taken good constitutional advice we’re very confident about these laws … bring it on.”
9News understands about 50 bikies have gathered recently for at least two meetings at a hired function centre.
The meetings were live streamed online for those who couldn’t make it.
Members asked to donate to the cause, as revealed by 6PR Mornings Host Gary Adshead.
“What it tells me is that the laws that are in place now are working and doing so much disruption to the outlaw motorcycle gangs that they’re having to come together to try combat them,” he said.
Police have laid 112 charges in 11 months.
