The West Gate Freeway, Melbourne, Australia
Via The Age:
Police have confronted thousands of protesters on Melbourne’s busiest freeway, appearing to fire pellets into the crowd outside a service station. Traffic has been blocked on a large part of the West Gate Freeway for hours.
Protesters reached the centre of the West Gate Bridge about 3.30pm AEST, then started their descent back down the bridge, and began heading back into the city.
When protesters reached a service station past the base of the bridge, they were met with lines of police who appeared to fire pellets into the crowd…
Every so often in hostile dark times, we sometimes witness a bit of good old Aussie larikanism that makes us smile or laugh.
This is important.
Im giving the “Larikan Legend Of The Week Award” to this guy on the bike.
