At #OccupyMyerDepartmentStoreCBD in Melbourne Victoria. At least the cops didn’t shoot, as they are wont…

This is not Singapore, this is not Syria, this is not Libya, this is not Egypt, this is frackin’ Melbourne! As the crowd was chanting “the world is watching,” four hundred (400, count ’em) police and riot squad moved in on ONE hundred (100, count ’em out) sit-in protesters to drag them away and demolish their tents.

Aiyah.

Could mean the end of the current Liberal (as in conservative) party government – I hope.
