Construction Workers in Australia Clash With Police to Protest Mandatory Vaccinations

Protests of a Mostly Peaceful variety, I'm sure you'll feel reassured to hear.

It's been a violent few days in Melbourne, Australia, where construction workers and other demonstrators are clashing with police as they protest the government's COVID-19 vaccine requirements.

Amid the surging delta variant, officials in Victoria state -- where Melbourne is the largest city -- recently announced a vaccination mandate for construction workers that requires each employee to show proof of at least one dose by Thursday.

Some 13% of the state's active COVID-19 cases are linked to construction sites, according to local media.

Construction workers who are opposed to the new restrictions have made their positions known in protests that have escalated in recent days.

...

On Monday, people gathered outside the headquarters of the prominent Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union to protest the mandate, chanting and yelling before attempting to storm the building.

Angry protesters threw bottles and smashed loudspeakers, according to local media reports.


Riot police deployed on the scene allegedly used rubber bullets and pepper spray to disperse crowds, the BBC reported, adding that the headquarters building was damaged and "several people" were arrested in the process.

...

"This crowd was heavily infiltrated by neo-Nazis and other right wing extremist groups and it is clear that a minority of those who participated were actual union members," the statement said.

Others have alleged that neo-Nazis and anti-vaccination groups organized on encrypted social media platforms before arriving at the protest in "hi-vis" clothing to look like construction workers.

Are you sure it wasn't the RUSSIAN BOTS behind it?


Bill Shorten -- the former opposition leader and current member of Parliament who serves as shadow minister for the national disability insurance scheme and for government services -- said in a TV interview that some protesters were construction workers while others were "fake tradies."

"There is a network of hard-right, man-baby Nazis," he said, "people who just want to cause trouble. ... They want to complain about the vaccination, and they deserve to get the full force of everything that's coming their way."

They have the same playbook everywhere in the world, don't they?

That's NPR "reporting," by the way.

Below, all the "fake tradies" protesting.

This is what happens when allow yourself to be taken for granted by a political party or other institution.

37 From Andrea Widburg over at AT:

"Just like the AFL-CIO or UAW in America, the union leadership in Australia is politically corrupt and disconnected from the members they serve. Earlier today (AU-time), the union members organized to confront the union leadership.

This is a very interesting development. If the heavy-hitting labor unions start striking back against government leadership they previously supported and installed, the entire dynamic of power shifts. We must keep watching this closely because this is also the dynamic we could see play out in the United States, only on a much larger scale."

59 Worst part-- the labor union leadership is stabbing its members in the back:

CFMEU accuses its own MEMBERS of being 'far-right Nazis'
Thousands of construction workers rallied outside the CFMEU base demanding to see union boss John Setka after failing to protect members from Labor's mandatory vaccination order.

In an extraordinary move, the CFMEU released an official statement blaming the protest on a mob of far-right Nazis instead of acknowledging the anger of thousands of CFMEU construction workers. . .

I have been to 11 countries and I am sure many have been too many more. It is not a contest, I used to love travel and experiencing other cultures. The country I first wanted to visit, way back in the early eighties, was OZ. Now I would rather see about fifty other nations and that saddens me.

They have been wrong on everything over the last many decades. Their gun grabbing was just the start, but I suppose it was the camel's nose under the tent.

139 You'd think that the Neo Nazis/White Supremacists being so large in number and organized so well and internationally would by now have released some news memos (as all those type terrorist groups do) about what they did at least to take credit. Sometimes they announce ahead of time to alert everyone where to be.

Yet somehow these memos are missing. Also no leaders of these groups has ever been actually named for sure or arrested.

So either they're non-existent (except in the minds of the real terrorists the Gov't) or the Gov't enforcers are doing a piss poor job of finding them and infiltrating them so as to thwart their evil deeds.

159 Societies with representative governments can change course when the people have had enough.

But throughout the Western world the left has taken over the other parties leaving only a controlled opposition as the alternative for the people.

Which means there is no longer a safety valve. This generally leads to real insurrection, and quickly. And frankly, we have to hope it does. A *real* revolutionary movement taking power in OZ or somewhere else is likely to have the governing class fearing the people again quickly.

177 Never met an actual nazi, but did know a guy in my USAF days who went on to be a Texas State Trooper, and sometime along the line, had also joined the KKK.

Well, given the state of the feddle infiltration of the klan, it didn't take long for the Texas Rangers to "catch wind" of said affiliation.

And just like *snap!* that, he wasn't a Texas State Trooper anymore. Wanna take a guess where he finally landed, till retirement? U.S. Customs. The Feds, our Best & Brightest! (yeah, not)

263 I was going to post this in a covid thread.

I live in a large Nevada city - masks are mandatory indoors. Our scumbag governor has had us masked up for about 14 months straight (save that very brief month or so earlier this summer). Went to a popular casino on Saturday - I counted about 150-200 people not wearing masks - walking around.

Lots more seated with their masks off, some holding drinks, others not. No one was apparently hassling the unmasked as near as I could tell - I slipped my off while in the Keno room. No one said anything.

Hoping this is a sign that many people are done with this charade.

No no, it's totally voluntary. You can choose not to sign, but you don't get the vaccine then. And it's not the government forcing anything, it's your employer. So, your employer will fire you, unless you indemnify the company that made the vaccine, that you didn't want. Lots of third parties here, but not the government. The government is an innocent, pure, holy thing, absolutely the driven fucking snow.

343 Golf is very much psychological. The difference between a par shot and not is very tiny by measurement in degrees of angle or force.

Thus if you think you are losing, you will.

It's a very psychologically influences game because your body reflects your current mind state.

And that's the difference between the winners and the also ran. The ability to shape your attitude regardless of your opponents and your own mind set. A headache can mean the difference between winning a million dollars and losing and not being able to play in the next tournament.

345 My guess is that there are plenty of golfers who can match strokes with all but the very best on the PGA tour...when there is nothing on the line. Put their house payment and car payment and kids' education on the line and that number shrinks considerably.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at September 21, 2021 03:54 PM (Q9lwr)


Golf is incredibly zen and a freaking head game. You have to tune out every little thing and somehow enter that zone. (happy place is right) It's almost as much art as it is anything else. That's what makes it so addictive and so frustrating. What "sport" would cause you to throw your clubs into a water hazard only to have a new set 2 days later and be back on the fairways?

It's you against you.

Closest I ever came is a friend of mine who was a boy of 7 when the GIs liberated his village in Germany after the GIs crossed the Rhine.
He is still alive today, he lives in AZ, and collects tanks.
He speaks perfect English with a German accent.

There is golf - and then there is tournament golf. The greens people roll the greens down to an 11 stimp and the second cut rough is allowed grow up an extra inch and the pins are put in sucker positions. I've followed the Boswell spawn around a lot of golf, nothing is more intense, pressured and difficult as tournament golf.

She can easily shoot a 73 on a practice day with papa Boswell driving around the cart drinking beer - and then a week later in a college tournament shoot an 81. Sure, my girl can beat a lot of fat aging range pros - but out there, where money is made? She's a nobody.

Posted by: Fire Lake at September 21, 2021 03:15 PM (oXJmp)

Americans love to say that and childishly worship authority while in too many cases the police happily reward such things by spitting in the face of the public. While the cops have an important job to do, they are just like anyone else: praise them when they do right, slam them when they screw up.

As far as I am concerned, if you have a "Back the Blue" sign in your yard or a bumper sticker on your vehicle, you are as big an idiot as the "defund the police" crowd. Judge people on their character, not on how they get a paycheck.
