People who have lost their jobs, suffered adverse reactions, and lost loved ones have laid out work uniforms, toys, signs, flowers, and photographs on the steps of Parliament house in Melbourne. Such a powerful message being sent to our government to show how much destruction has taken place in what used to be a beautiful state, which is now seeing people desperate to have their lives back to some level of normality.
School uniforms, what looks to be a deb dress or wedding dress, a guitar, other uniforms with signs and chalk drawings in the mix, a powerful reminder of the level of impact the lockdowns and mandates have had over the past 21 months
Children’s toys and shoes mixed in with more uniforms, signs, and messages. The items are spread across a wide section of the steps. The sombre feeling while looking at this is intense. It raises thoughts and feelings and makes this writer determined to keep fighting alongside all these beautiful people.
A sign left by someone tells the story of frustration and despair and shirts belonging to two former nurses send a clear message that this was never about health. If nurses and doctors are walking away to avoid an injection, one must realise there is a reason for this, and then question the honesty of the main narrative.
The lingering question that I hear so often is, “When will this all end?”
I was asked today by one man who felt pressured to get an injection to keep his job, and then lost his job anyway, “How long will it take to fix this? When will all the protests and the letter writing make the problem go away?”
My only answer is that we are seeing very slow changes and we can only keep our spirits high and have faith that in the end, the love and the light of the majority will prevail over the evil we are experiencing.
