During the coronavirus lockdown in Australia’s largest states you were only allowed to legally leave your home for what the government considered “essential reasons”. Free speech and assembly, our basic civil rights, have not been considered essential. My featured guest on the midweek edition of WilmsFront is Victor Tey who’s been exercising his rights every Saturday outside NSW Parliament House.
Then a little later I am joined by online commentator and regular WilmsFront contributor Joel Jammal to interpret the upside-down nature of the US civil unrest, rioting and looting triggered by the death of African-American man George Floyd in an incident of police brutality.
