30 members from NT Police have resigned in the past week – the organisation is now facing its worst employment crisis ever. These resignations come only a short time after the force lost around 200 members because of the vaccine mandates, and NT Police were already dealing with critical under employment issues prior to that. According to members of the police force, reasons for resignation are not due to pay or working conditions, but from lack of support from upper management. The NT is already crippled by crime, and staff shortages are likely to exponentiate this issue in the future.
It comes amid a time in which the NTs current COVID cluster has allegedly increased to 40 active cases. The ADF is forcibly transferring Indigenous members of remote communities to quarantine facilities and there are reports of forced vaccinations occurring on these communities. ADF personnel are mentally suffering due to the inhumanity they are witnessing first hand.
On top of this, NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner recently made an emotional speech in which he visibly appears to be angry and upset. He goes on a rant about anti-vaxers, stating; “If you’re anti-mandate, you are absolutely anti-vax, even if you are vaccinated.” This is in complete contradiction to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who recently stated that Australians have done the right thing by getting vaccinated and it is now time for state governments to ease restrictions. Unfortunately, it does not seem like any of them are planning to do so.
Let’s hope that with the recent mass exodus of NT health and emergency workers, more members of the community unite to support freedom.
