This protest march around the country is an absolute joke. The whole country has been working towards beating this pandemic - costing the country a fortune - making daily life a misery - only to see thousands shoulder to shoulder around the country today for a cause most folk are struggling to define. Some businesses are still not even open - like gyms. Seriously cannot believe it. A lot of explaining required.

And how could a judge overturn a decision to make it legal in Sydney ?

How would you like to be a restaurant , cafe or other type of hospitality owner. Struggling your arse off for 3 months - still operating under severe restrictions - only to see thousands of people ignoring all social distancing requirements. All with a green light.

I agree, the nightsticks need to be applied liberally, and not just to the idiots marching.

And why would you open a new thread instead of posting your opinions in the Coronavirus thread?

Agree oneone 100%----   Shoot a few of the Mad persons .

What the west will achieve is NON ACTIVE Police ---   Justifiably they will go to work and no hands on.----   issue a few Parking tickets and let the home invaders have a picnic.
I'm ashamed to be an Aussie to day. We should all be complaining to our local member of Parliament. All day , every day.

The American Police are resigning in big numbers.

People have "played the game" wonderfully well during the lockdowns, and now people in authority are giving way to this riff-raff

I have a business that is restricted to a max of 10 people at any one time. Social distancing, tracing logs , consumable hygiene supply - resulting in massive income loss & big cost increases - with the threat of huge fines if we breach. And then we see this ! How should i feel ?

All this bar the Court of Appeal decision has already been comprehensively canvassed in the coronavirus thread.

Maybe 11 is following Boob's example and trying to reach Premium Status on here by opening entirely unnecessary new threads.

We're only about a hundred billion down the hole through the restrictions imposed, and now we have this BS allowed ? My opinion of our politicians can't get much lower, but it has today.

It's just a further extension of the "national sorry day" BS, I declare any day when officialdom panders to minorities on the basic of ethnicity, a sorry day.

I mean seriously - how are Scomo et al ( all persuasions) - going to expect anyone to take them seriously on this issue going forward. All those health workers , all the business owners , all those that want to travel here & overseas but cant. Time to pull all restrictions & hope for the best

Bit of fence sitting from what I've read PT. Should the protest marches been all allowed to go ahead or not ?

It's an inevitable result of years of pandering, they can't turn that "Queen Mary" around in a day, and say, "stay home or else, we don't care what your pet grievance is today, we have greater priorities".

I agree it's a disgrace. And that it deserves its own thread. God know the corona thread has gone off on a million tangents.
I wonder if Trump will find his way into this one.

It’s pretty rare that things on the news get me angry this one does. Bloody idiots marching for their own satisfaction , “ look at me aren’t I sooo woke and progressive” and managing to totally annoy the vast majority of Australians! Most of them don’t even know why theyre protesting! One things for sure indigenous Australians deserve much better than having their cause hijacked by these fools. I think it has to be stressed that the city dwelling idiots DO NOT speak for indigenous Australia. Most of them are at home doing the right thing by their family and health, given the Indigenous are more susceptible than others to this virus. The worst part? Scomo and Gladys will be rubbing their hands together with glee saying “ come in spinner” . This behaviour today will boost their popularity a lot. God the modern left are stupid!

Weak as. This will cost lives for sure. And cause a major amount of resistance to lock-down rules, by law-abiding people. These coots have been told by hand-wringers that they are above the law, and are now acting the part.

What do they actually want ? What changes are actually going to occur tomorrow - or next week or next month ? I get the high incarceration rates - i get the crap health outcomes - i even get the racism bit - but haven't we been trying to address all that for decades now ? Sorry Day , Reconciliation , Government Housing , Government hand-outs , works programs , sporting scholarships, interventions for children in danger - i mean things have been improving surely !
