Nothing like being at a protest.

Many people take for granted our right to free speech and the right to protest. Today, Judy and I took part in a protest situated in front of the Victorian Parliament house along with a couple of thousand other people.

The cause was to ban the live exportation of Australian livestock. We were able to hear Lyn White, Hugh Wirth and Adam Bandt speak. I held a poster of the steer shown on the 4Corners program while Judy’s poster had an unknown steer.

It was a great morning and good fun. I hope it pays off.

This shot was before things started and numbers did significantly increase.

There were young, old, male, female, a few dogs and a sheep at the protest.
