Report reveals 'shocking' anti-Asian racism in Australia during coronavirus pandemic https://t.co/zG1B5RgA3h via @SBSNews
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across the U.S., here’s how the disability community has been hit especially hard. https://t.co/35OQDZMHyv
It’s no accident that Blak Australia has survived the pandemic so well. Survival is what we do. Powerful pice by my sista #melissalucashenko ⬛️🟨🟥 #Covid_19 https://t.co/lE8BsuEEt4
- How quick was the deploying 100s of cops.
- How slow is the the testing and hygene procedures.
- How too slow was the suppy of daily needs, "some of it expired - (check media reports)"
March 27: Stonnington (Toorak etc) had 58 COVID-19 cases (10% of Victoria's total), the Mornington Peninsula had 39, the second-highest number. Very little testing was being done compared to now.
Where were the repurposed booze-buses, police foot patrols and lockdowns then? https://t.co/khOB5AifJS
thank you for the comparison pic of the office-based Premier who locks brown people in towers vs the sporty PM who locks brown people in detention, it helped me figure out where my loyalties lie
There's still no evidence Black Lives Matter protesters caused Melbourne COVID-19 surge https://t.co/wmILCjHrk4
About half of California prison inmates killed by COVID-19 were disabled, advocates say https://t.co/O6a0LH573n
“I live alone, I was seriously going crazy, I was sick and all I could think about was my daughter.”
A piece I wrote for @HuffPostAU about the experiences of residents not receiving adequate health services during ‘hard lockdown.’
Just video proof of the type of people we are dealing with this is the DHHS worker in charge of the building. Laughing at us after these officers were violent. (This took place when we went back with out AMSSA reps to grab the badge numbers and information for complaints). https://t.co/DjD6AejWPQ
This disgraceful woman isn’t taken into custody, but people in the flats are locked inside their homes with 5 police to a person stopping them from leaving? Right. https://t.co/ADNam6oXW7
The same NSW Govt that runs protest organisers to court and condemns us as reckless is defending pubs despite multiple COVID cases. The right to drink trumps the right to protest in Aus. Unless your Black living under the Intervention - then you can be locked up for both!
When 1 in 4 #covid cases were in the Mornington peninsula or Toorak and South Yarra or 1/4 of deaths from Ruby Princess, the Bolts & Hanson’s of this world never raised the race of these communities. So when they do now know it’s just filthy racism, gutter racism by racists.
One example from last night
A mother in Alfred Street has been awaiting FOUR DAYS to get Panadol and Nuroften for her 10 month old and 11 year old child.
Wtf Victoria, wear a fucking mask. Walked 5ks in nth suburbs, ppl wearing a mask: zero. Cafes: full. Someone just walked past me: “gday”. I said, “gday please wear your mask”. Meanwhile... not-wealthy ppl in the towers are surrounded by cops. We’re not all in this together 👍 https://t.co/nViQFa2Ot2
Someone else called out to us from several storeys up ‘We’re hungry! We have no food.’
The tenants didn’t know who to call to get food. No-one had told them.
Oh shit! Is this the moment? Did it take a global pandemic for racism, as a thing OUTSIDE the imagination of Black and brown folx, to FINALLY take center stage
Don’t get tired or lazy white folx...this is just the beginning...”many hands make light work” https://t.co/tdwNPDM02p
