    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.

    Yes, you’re right, not sure why I thought it was Victoria.

    You choose the behaviour, you choose the consequences. I think she was an idiot to even protest restrictions that are in force to keep people safe and see our country through this pandemic safely. We could be like the USA with a complete moron in charge and hundreds of thousands dead.
    Anyone who drags their innocent child into adult issues and poor decisions like this really should have them removed.

    Love it. However the protesters don’t believe there are (or ever were) veloraptors, or that they are just a distraction so the park can take over their minds/bodies with an injectable microchip.
