COVID-19; good old fashioned Australian racism
ABC News Melbourne leads with a ‘Rona outbreak at one Eastern Health hospital (Maroondah, Angliss and Box Hill hospitals) but doesn’t say which one. Naturally they had a reporter outside Box Hill Hospital though, despite there being no evidence that it was the location of the outbreak.
They also reported that a China Bar was fined for serving customers. Betcha that just happened to be the first restaurant that the Police walked into.
documentary review: Crip Camp
Newly-released doco on Netflix about Camp Jened and the fight for disability rights in America from the 60s through to the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990. Has a slight liberal tinge to it (it was executive produced by Barack & Michelle Obama, go figure) but it’s a good watch regardless, especially if you want to learn about the history of occupations and other non-violent protest methods
