According to The Age, 10,000 protesters turned out yesterday to object to something or other the state ALP’s done that’s allegedly “killing live music” in the city. (I believe it’s a diabolical CONE OF SILENCE that descends every night at 1am.) Apparently, a lot of progressive people were there – along with some opportunistic Liberal Party MPs whose participation apparently wasn’t enough to make anyone think twice.
And disturbingly, that’s quite a few more than attended the last rally for marriage equality in November.
Which leads me to ask – what kind of progressive person is more interested in campaigning for easier liquor licensing laws to help pubs than they are in fighting government discrimination against an oppressed minority?
