‘Get a real job’: NSW deputy premier lashes out at Blockade Australia protesters

“The New South Wales…police made 10 arrests across Sydney. Blockade Australia protesters were among a group of 50 to 60 activists who converged on Hyde Park about 8am on Monday, before marching towards the harbour, chanting, playing drums, with some pulling down signs, dragging wheelie bins onto the road and blocking intersections. One of those arrested was a 22-year-old woman who allegedly locked herself to the steering wheel of her car and blocked the harbour tunnel. Blockade Australia live-streamed a video of the car as it blocked all citybound lanes of traffic for about an hour.”
