🙄 people lovin' The Project. Don't forget on the show about racism in AFL & the Adam Goodes doco Waleed said..."I deliberately didn't have an indigenous voice, because I felt that we needed to reflect the media as it was, and that doesn’t include indigenous voices”.
libraries here are opening back up this week and already I've heard library workers talk of "policing" patron limits and whether libraries might need police to enforce distancing or stop ppl entering and all I can say is wow. oh and also LIBRARY WORKERS STOP CALLING THE COPS
Like many Australians, I’m extremely distressed by the death of George Floyd and what is unfolding in the USA right now.

@riotersbloc I did a little research on the meatpacking plant in question, this is a job vacancy for them; they use a labour hire agency that specialises in temporary work and doesn’t require PR. I would say for sure heavily staffed by people without PR
The Brooklyn (Melbourne) meatpacking plant with the cluster of COVID-19 cases appears to have been staffed by highly vulnerable workers with few leave rights, most likely migrant workers
