Dear @cityofmelbourne @SallyCapp_
I am a doctor at the Royal #Melbourne ICU.

I worked 56 hours over four days in helping look after some of our state’s sickest patients.

At 10pm last night, I left work to find a fine on my car dashboard.
The day before lockdown, my bike was stolen from outside this hospital.

Public transport is off-limits to prevent exposure to the virus, and transmission to colleagues and patients.

Your “free permits” are long gone. There were too few to begin with. Many missed out.
In lockdown, who do you think is parking in the streets by the hospital?

It is the doctors, nurses, orderlies, pharmacists, physios, technicians, cleaners, cooks, ward clerks.

So when you send a parking inspector to Parkville, know that it is these people you are targeting.

@realDonaldTrump visits #WalterReedNationalMilitary Medical Center.

Only reason why he would wear that mask for **R the kids** that's my opinion...!
No he isn't playing with y'all..
He is just a good chess player that's all...!

Long #MedEd #publichealth 🧵 might be applicable to where you live but is directed at my home town #Melbourne 🇦🇺

Melbourne’s R0 is now up 2.5 as per @JennyMikakos

That means every person with #COVID19 #COVID19Vic is infecting another 2.5 people. 1/…
Back in March Dr Angela Merkel used her communication skills & #STEM background to eloquently explain what R0 is and why even just a rise above 1 to 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 is significant.

Worth watching interview 👇🏼which has subtitles for nonGerman speakers. 2/
Recapping: the current R0 of 2.5 in #Melbourne is very alarming.

Every person with #covid19 (test proven or not) will infect 2.5 people.

Fabulous gif by @siouxsiew @xtotl of @TheSpinoffTV shows the exponential increase well & what happens if we #StayAtHome 👇🏼H/T @simonahac 3/

Hello. Today's #VirtualRailfanning trip is a bit different: the end of roller destination blinds on #Melbourne trams in the 2000s. 1/ Here Z3 229 is on Melville Rd West Coburg with an inbound Route 55 service on 3/5/2006. In November 2007 229 would receive LED indicators.
2/ On 16/5/2006, Z3 141 is on Swanston St in the CBD with an outbound Route 16 service bound for Kew. It is about to pass St Paul's Cathedral and its central spire which was being refurbished at the time. 141 also received LED destination indicators in November 2007.
3/ The 2nd prototype B1 class articulated light rail vehicle, B1 2002 crosses Spring St with a St Vincents Plaza-bound Route 31 shuttle on 22/3/2006. Trailing end blinds show destination 'City' rather than 'Collins St West End'. Converted to LEDs while stored at Southbank 2006-8.

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

I am excited to arrive in #Melbourne to take part in the first-ever Asian-Australian Leadership Summit, which aims to highlight and address the under-representation of Asian-Australians in political, business, government and civil society leadership. #AsianAusLeadership
@Asialink_au @PwC_AU @OrgAALA @Austrade @BankofMelb @Committee4Melb @dfat @AusUnlimited @asiacapable @AsArticulations The Leading for Change report highlights the lack of #CulturalDiversity in senior leadership. While Anglo-Australians represent 58% of population, they hold 76% of senior leadership positions. Those from non-European background are under-represented by 16%. #AsianAusLeadership

1) Gah. OK. Here's a thread on the Australian neo-#Nazi groupuscule (see Roger Griffin, 'From slime mould to rhizome: an introduction to the groupuscular right', @POP_Jrnl, Vol.37, No.1, 2003) Antipodean Resistance ...

2) First, a coupla general obs. This disclaimer in James Hearnes' analysis of 'Siege' is worthwhile, but its application is not straightfwd, & raises a no of difficult issues.
3) In general, if I document nazi agitprop, it's typically w a view to using this material to actually identify those responsible for its production & distribution. So: Antipodean Resistance (AR) has developed a media strategy predicated on attracting attn, & its use of >

Right-wing extremists were already on spy agencies' radars… via @canberratimes
1) A reasonable analysis, to which I would add a few things. First, ASIO notes that: 'Individuals motivated by other ideologies [than Islamist extremists] – such as an extreme left or right-wing ideology – may consider conducting an act of terrorism.'
2) That's why a no of ppl in some way assoc w anTEEfa stuff in AUS have received visits in the past few years. Further, concern over left/right extremism is not brand-new; it was also noted in the agency's 2010--2011 report. See :

At risk of repetition, inre ths map via… I thought I might add a few more deets (another bloody thread).
1) 'Cooks Convicts' (MEL) emerged c AUG 2018. It incs Neil Erikson & Ricky Turner, but also a smol no others, inc (Eurydice Dixon memorial vandal) Andy Nolch, Rino 'Bluebeard' Grgurovic & Logan Spalding. L to R : RG, NE, AN, LS, RT. The hand signal may be familiar to some ...
2) Prior to CC, the grouping around Erikson he previously named 'Patriot Blue' after the white nationalist grping depicted in Stan's 'Romper Stomper'. The name was dropped after legal action, triggered by the Sam Dastyari incident (NOV 2017). See :….

1) Hey it's time for me to goto bed, but one final thing inre #eggboy/#eggboi. As noted, neo-#Nazi Neil Erikson was one of the 5 or 6 men who, er, restrained the teen; Erikson has criminal convictions for antisemitic (FEB 2014) & anti-Muslim (SEP 2017) actions.
2) Perhaps in order to complete the trifecta, last year (MAY 2018) he was also charged w disrupting a church service -- which involved him & some of his thuggish mates invading Gosford church & scaring some elderly parishoners.
3) He's due back in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on MAY 13 to face charges of riot/assault/affray stemming from the Melbourne date of the DEC 2017 Milo Yiannopoulos tour; joining him in court on same will be his sidekick Ricky Turner & old nazi chum Richard Whelan.

TBH, shocking as it is, I'm not that surprised at the #Christchurch massacre, or that the alleged killer livestreamed his assault on @Facebook. There's literally thousands of pages dedicated to spreading murderous Islamophobia on the platform, w an audience of many millions.
You can gain some insight into the nature of the milieu by examining the joyful responses to the massacre; useful insofar as it helps explode the Ordinary Mums & Dads™ myth that leading sections of Australian media have been/will continue to propagate. #ReclaimAustralia #auspol
The killer wrote slogans on his guns. Among them is a reference to
Josué Estébanez, a neo-Nazi who stabbed a teenage antifa, Carlos Palomino, to death in Madrid in November 2007. The murder was ofc celebrated @ the time by local neo-Nazis, including Neil Erikson.

Congratulations to Ralph Cerminara on finally succeeding in his decade-long campaign to get himself locked up for being a racist kvnt in public.

Former leader of far-right movement jailed for foul-mouthed attack on neighbour… via @smh
1) As noted, Cerminara was once Der Fuehrer of one iteration of the anti-Muslim 'Australian Defence League', est 2010 & modelled on Yaxley-Lennon's EDL (Yaxley-Lennon is being toured, along w Gavin McInnes & Milo Yiannopoulos, by @PenthouseAU in April).
2) That ADL didn't get v far, but did serve as the avenue by which Shermon 'The Great Aussie Patriot' Burgess was 'radicalised'. Burgess is now, perhaps inevitably, a Hitler fanboy; in the last few years Cerminara has been vociferously denounced by him as a violent drunk. Sad!

#invasionDay #Melbourne Ricky Turner ('Cooks Convicts', below) & Garry Hume tried to cause a scene @ Flinders Street today, w/o much luck. You may remember Turner from when he accosted Police Minister Lisa Neville a coupla weeks ago (…).
Turner is also #BFFs w Andy Nolch, who was convicted last year of vandalising the memorial to murdered woman Eurydice Dixon -- Turner though Nolch's action was brilliant & a total yuk fest. Other claims to fame include paying a nocturnal visit to Catherine Deveny's house >
> last year & another to the house of rival right-wing provocateur Dave Pellowe (who organised the tour by AltRight figureheads Stefan Molyneux & Lauren Southern). Turner will be joining Neil Erikson & Richard Whelan in court in May over charges arising from the MILO stoopid.
