Freedom of Political Communication in a Democracy

I have been wondering, as I have been reading Twitter replies and retweets this evening, whether the difficulty I experienced when attempting to file an “Application for order to show cause” with the accompanying affidavit, my attempt being denied on grounds of being vexatious and abuse of process under Rule 6.07 of the High Court Rules, actually contravenes the constitutionally implied freedom of political communication.

I have come to the conclusion that yes, it does, for if one is not permitted to file an application in the court, how does one advance the particular public interest at issue, in this case, the detention and treatment of asylum seekers on Manus Island?
