Many years ago women went to protests with their babies in prams for the suffragette movement and were treated like hero’s. My daughter is in the police force and I would be absolutely horrified if she would ever be any part of something like this.
I don’t agree with the way the police handled with situation but do want to point out that protesting without a permit is illegal. Well in Queensland at least. So even if she was abiding by COVID restrictions doesn’t mean that what she was doing was legal.
