How to make a lawful protest in the State of Disaster

Give Dan The Boot!

As I have indicated in my blog on various occasions, whilst I am far too conservative to participate in demonstrations, I do very strongly believe in the right to protest as part of what makes for a healthy democracy.

That people (bogans are people too) have been arrested in their own homes for simply advocating holding protests in the current state of disaster in Victoria, under emergency powers which suppress freedom of speech, makes me very concerned about the conduct of the technocrats currently ruling Victoria.

So, I am not going to do anything to break the law, or to encourage bogans to do something stupid.

What I am going to do is express my dismay with the technocratic and authoritarian conduct of Premier Andrews by placing my boots at the front of my home. “Give Dan The Boot” is a civilised and lawful way of protesting, as it is to discuss such passive protests online.

Whilst we still have some freedoms, let’s use those that we still have to advocate for the return of those which have been taken (hopefully temporarily) from us as soon as possible. Especially the freedom of speech and the right to protest.
