& as a country we were doing so well up to today. All out the window now as far as I'm concerned. Nearly all young people as well - selfish. Thank god one day they will get old & realise how badly they got it wrong.

Bit late now, unless the police were told to "go easy". I would blame them.

Morrison said ''it's a free country'' on marches last week. Gladys said this march was fine the other day, her right wing said no it isn't, so off to the Supreme Court at the 11th hour then Appeals Court. marches go ahead right or wrong. Who will they blame if there is a breakout? 

After Morrison totally screwed up the Job Keeper thing, I thought he was back on track but of late he is showing why he couldn't keep a job in Tourism in 2 countries. Total incompetent. Maybe he will pray for a miracle tomorrow.

Meanwhile - i'd still like your thoughts PT instead of pot shotting Morrison. Should the marches have gone ahead or not ?

Interesting ruling by the Appeals Court saying that the original police approval could not be overruled and while there is an emergency Public Health warning in place, the police authorization Wednesday gives the organizers and anyone attending a ''reasonable excuse''out to avoid prosecution.

This is a watershed day, for me, I realise how hopelessly inept our leaders really are. But then I've known for many years, the wrong-headedness of pandering to the "aboriginal industry"

Tens of thousands marched in Melbourne, yet no fines issued. Anyone who has copped COVID fines recently, would be well justified in not paying.

Pushing Covid19 aside, Australia, AGAIN, truly realised how lucky we are to even be on Aboriginal lands.

How many Indigenous people today smashed up Myer, David Jones, to grab some Nike shoes?

Be thankful for how peaceful our Indigenous people are.

The organisers will not pay the fines, they should have taken straight to the slammer and not being released until Tuesday.

If you didn't hate the B's before , most will certainly keep them in mind in the future.      . They are more angry that they have to pay rent shortly and the $750 a week gift comes to an end .
Police did a wise thing ----   Don't touch them , let the Governments and their Judicial idiots sort them out .

400 deaths in custody in 30 years would only be a fraction of the number of kids raped ,murdered , starved etc . Of Women subject to domestic violence .      400 would be the usual suicide rates.

Well over 3000 people die by suicide each year.

Aboriginal Medical Services and Aboriginal Legal Services - provide cost-free medical and legal services. The Indigenous Employment Programme - provides flexible financial assistance to help create employment and training opportunities for Indigenous people in the private sector.
Approx 40 billion is spent per year on Indigenous people.

Please all, refrain from personal attacks against other forum members.

I have been very lenient as I know there are strong feelings but keep personal stuff away from now on.

Some businesses are still not even open - like gyms. Seriously cannot believe it. A lot of explaining required.

Don’t be juvenile djebel. People are really really angry about this. Not with Indigenous Australians or even with the cause itself. But with the timing of a mass protest in the middle of a pandemic by entitled idiots. Can’t you see how much harm they’ve done? All so they could get lots of selfies and make witty signs while giving themselves a pat on the back .It’s disgusting.

It's the end result of gutless politicians who won't bite the bullet and lead, "crash, or crash through" as Whitlam called it. Being led by noisy minorities doesn't work. Pretty easy to see where the priorities lie, even public health and the national economy, takes a back seat to pandering to the the mythology of the oppressed black fella, a battle won long ago, time for the hand-wringers to get another hobby-horse.

I'll put it even more succinctly, "two wrongs don't make a right", and its about time people woke up to it, what happened today, was a grievous wrong. What is past, is past, and what can be changed, already has been, but if you make a living out of peddling grievance based on historic wrongs, you want to keep it on the boil. I suppose if you're otherwise unemployable, that's understandable.

The NSW Court of Appeal over ruled the Supreme Court and said that Gladys/NSW Police order that the march can go ahead was valid. 

What is there to talk about? Gladys screwed up the NSW COA slapped her down.
