Did you know there are acts of protest happening every weekend in #Naarm/#Melbourne in solidarity with the women of #Iran? Yesterday this group, who come from different walks of life in Iran, stood for 10 hours. Their first silent vigil.
#MahsaAmini #WomanLifeFreedom
They invited others to stand with them, and in the time I was there, I listened to:
- frustration with the low visibility in Aus of this major intl issue
- observations that the Iranian community is quite small in Aus, and unlike eg NZ, no/few pols with Iranian heritage in govt
They also talked to me about:
- frustration at how media coverage is not capturing the extent of the repression these protests are being met with in Iran
- one, visibly shaken, showed me photos texted to her daily, of faces, eyes, bodies ruined by small caliber ammunition

1/Thinking of #trees #peat #carbon and #nature and #fires. When are Victorians (without hysterics @theage ) to be made fully aware of the State #auslaws over fines in State Parks for picking up a rock, walking off track and so on. @DanielAndrewsMP/2
2/As it is now there are hundreds of shooting licensed people walking off track. Hundreds of thousands of feral deer, xrabbits,x pigs (latter two a food, anti #poverty source that cannot be culled by shooters) already damaging #native wildlife.Protecting #Indigenous locations/3
3/ @DanielAndrewsMP is key but to lock up (by fines) large areas is #segregation and discrimination. To lock up but then ok if you pay — is a cynical misuse of power. It would be good to hear from #Indigenous Victoria as we already know the value of the birthing trees was/4

June home builder sentiment and survey results are in. Top themes: 1) A lot more new home buyers cancelling. 2) Price cuts becoming fairly common. 3) Drop in demand finally cooling construction cost pressures (builder layoffs also happening). Market commentary to follow…
#Atlanta builder: “Someone turned out the lights on our sales in June!”
#Austin builder: “Sales have fallen off a cliff. We’re selling 1/3 of what we sold in March and April. Trades are more willing to negotiate pricing since market has adjusted significantly past 60 days.”

In post I mentioned #Aerosmith's "Pink". Said it symbolized drug prized by elites. Here band member hints that it refers to something "all rock and roll is about". Lady parts comes to mind. Given rock's Satanic vibe same could be said of the drug tho.
Watermelon Sugar High by Harry Styles is another example. On one level it's obviously all about the ecstasy of mad shagging. But for "those in the know" the allusion is to this pink drug, I reckon. Harry even sings that "he can't do without" it.

The violent rhetoric and symbols on display at the #pandemic law protests in #Melbourne are incredibly concerning. I hope that Australia doesn’t make the same mistake as the USA. Peaceful protest is right in a democracy - but threatening violence is not. 1/5
There is a lot that can be said about the diverse composition of the protests, their grievances, the no good pandemic legislation & the heavy handed pandemic approach by #VicGovt that drove people to protest, but first and foremost we must condemn this violence because … 2/5
there is only one way this goes - and it’s not anywhere good. The menace on display will metastasis if it’s not triaged. Even if a limited component of the overall protests were using violent symbols and rhetoric it’s enough to be of concern. 3/5

This is a seminal moment. The police hold power through illusion, they are only bestowed moral authority. Once it’s gone it’s gone - and it has gone, openly now. The issue now for Australian coppers is where do they go from here? #Australia #Melbourne
We must restore authority to the institutions of state, such as the police and government. But how can we do that - how do we safely restore law, order, respect and stability?
This is the same engagement, shot from the other side. Politicians forget we only agree to be policed by consent. There are some mining-strike communities in the UK where the police are still loathed forty years on. Scale up that hatred across cities.🤦🏼‍♂️

Boy oh boy are there a lot of cops out on the roads leading in to Melbourne CBD this morning. Saw two big roadblocks on a short bike around the outskirts this morning #Melbourne #melbourneprotest. Livestreams from #sydneylockdown #sydneyprotest also showing heavy police presence.
Some protesters have suggested using Waze to mark police presence for each other.
The plan in Melbourne seems to be to walk in from nearby places like Richmond or South Yarra.

Speaking of 'Nazis Next Door', imagen being neighbours with these psychopaths. 🤢
Prolly worth noting that these Very Stable men are mostly from #Melbourne, but NSN has members in ADE, BRIS, PER, SYD et al & around the country.
*You may remember Dan Newman et al from such protests as 'Reclaim Australia' in Melbourne, April 2015.

I know there are people curious about TikTok but see it as inacessible for a variety of reasons: unfamiliarity, what's the point, their own self-view as being non-tech, security concerns...but are still curious. The content is really good for the soul imo. Quick guide:
1. Download the app and make an account. Enter as minimal information about yourself as possible. I keep a separate email account for online shopping (to reduce spam) and use that. Don't use real birth date. Then...
2. Down the bottom of the screen, you'll see a magnifying glass or the 'discover' tab. Go into it and type in a topic that interests you with a hash in front of it. Suggestions: #melbourne, #sydney, #medicine #dancechallenge, #indigenous

Here’s on the ground local home builder commentary from across the country per our April survey. A lot of builders are pressing the pause button &/or slowing things down until construction costs moderate & they can catch up with sales. Worries about buyer price ceilings too...
#Chicago home builder commentary: “We sold all of the homes we had in early 2021 & haven’t started anything new, & may not due to the cost of construction. Can’t hold pricing for clients longer than 45 days with rising material pricing.”
#Nashville home builder commentary: “Pray for lower lumber prices.”

#Djokovic llegó, definitivamente, para reescribir los libros y elevarse en el monte de los Dioses del #tenis. Minimizó a una máquina de ganar como #Medvedev (7-5, 6-2 y 6-2, en 1h53m) para lograr su 9° #AusOpen, el 18° trofeo de #GrandSlam (a 2 de #Nadal y #Federer). Va por todo.
En plena premiación del #AusOpen, #Djokovic le agradece especialmente al #ARG Ulises Badio (…), su fisioterapeuta personal que lo ayudó a rehabilitarse de las molestias abdominales durante el torneo.
#Djokovic da la vuelta olímpica con el trofeo en el Rod Laver Arena y de fondo suena 'Gonna Fly Now', la canción de #RockyBalboa.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

1) #ScoMo recently seen in AAP photo with Aussie flag face diaper on upside down. Various theories about that. Laughing at our demise, or cry for help? I think prolly the latter. #Auspol
2) Reason I say this is because he posted another highly symbolic photo on Instagram, also taken in #Melbourne. #SymbolismWillBeTheirDownFall
3) He looks like utter doofus next to 2 expert chicks. Often happens these days. It's part of globalist man-bashing psyop. He wears Oz flag on face (right way up now). It's his 2 arms against their 4. Evokes #Shiva #symbolism Dr Tedros the Mega-Flog shared in Jan 2019.

Hi Twitter, my name is Jessie Moritz. I’m another of Kylie Moore-Gilbert’s colleagues and friends involved in running this campaign. I’m new-ish to Twitter, but you can find my alter-ego over here: @JessieMoritz 1/
When I first met Kylie, I was so excited to finally meet somebody else in Australia who worked on #Bahrain. We already had many mutual connections, including Bahrainis who for years had been telling me about the smart, kind, and humble Aussie researcher Kylie from #Melbourne 2/
I graduated in the same year as Kylie – we were both freshly minted PhDs, eager to put our stamp on the world. We connected over our curiosity and love of learning about foreign cultures 3/

#Australia #Melbourne #Coronavirus #Protests

The Australian police arrested more than one in three protesters during a demonstration against corona requirements in Melbourne. The police said there were 74 arrests at the rally with 200 to 250 participants.
176 people have been fined for violating health protection regulations. There were also scuffles between riot police and demonstrators. Melbourne is the focal point of the otherwise relatively moderate virus outbreak in Australia.
On Monday, a strict lockdown in the metropolis that has been in place for weeks will be relaxed slightly: people will then be allowed to stay outside for two hours - instead of the previous one hour.

1) I'm glad that #GiveDantheBoot and Vic Police are trending. Obviously the malignant, stunted little control-freak needs to GTFO of #SpringSt ASAP. But what's happening in #Victoria is waaay bigger than #DictatorDan himself.
2) Remember, *all* establishment pollies are not free, empowered leaders representing our interests. They are muppets of #globalistelite. All enthusiastically signed up to, or reluctantly acquiesced to "one world govt" push that's been advancing slowly in shadows for yonks.
3) This #NWO utopianism is opposite of organic, bottom up phenomenon. It's top down, driven by insanely rich, corrupt, depraved scumbags bonded by batshit cult. Many high up in #Auspol, MSM are members. Think of 'em as *ghouls*. Others, controlled by it, are *zombies*.
