Where have all the unions gone? …long time passing ……CMFEU members in Melbourne again revolt over alleged $20M sellout by union boss

Mainstream media targeted (about time)

Tue, 21 September 2021, 7:24 am

A second violent clash outside Melbourne’s construction union headquarters has been avoided but hundreds of protesters are now marching towards state parliament.

Just before 11.30am protesters wearing hi-vis gear started moving up Victoria Street and away from the CFMEU offices, following a warning from the riot squad.

They let off a flare and fireworks as they marched up Swanston Street and a news crew was assaulted.

Seven Network reporter Paul Dowsley was grabbed by the throat and a cameraman was thrown to the ground.

“There was a group there who certainly targeted us a few minutes ago, we were standing on a seat trying to get an elevated view as the protest group walked past. A few in the crowd had it in for mainstream media,” Dowsley said in a live cross following the assault.

More than 100 officers were walking up Swanston Street in pursuit of the crowd, which turned down La Trobe Street and appeared to be heading for the front steps of parliament.

Not long before they started marching, police had told them to back down and leave.

“Attention, this is a police public order warning. You have previously been directed to leave,” an officer inside a line of riot police and officers on horseback told the crowd.

“Leave now or force may be used. No further warnings will be given.”

Protesters at the intersection of Elizabeth and Victoria Streets in Melbourne’s CBD near the CFMEU responded with chants of “every day”.

They are opposing a Victorian government mandate requiring all construction workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The group, clad in hi-vis are chanting “f*** the jab”, “f*** off (Premier) Dan Andrews” and other expletives, were blocked from accessing the CFMEU by a line of Victoria Police officers.

On Monday, riot police were called in to disperse a group of about 500 protesters, who threw bottles at Victorian CFMEU construction secretary John Setka and smashed the office’s door down.

Some union members allege Secretary John Setka sold them out for a $20M backhander.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  3. I watched a live feed of Real Rushkan’s Mondays protest outside the CFMEU HO .After 5 hours a union rep came out and said he would give the workers the feedback on what John Setka had to say re their concerns in 1 hr . The hour passed and after a further 30 mins there was no response to the union members who by this time had heard Setka was on 3AW radio calling them far right extremists and that most weren’t union members outside his offices . Well that was the ‘straw that broke the camels back’ and a trigger for what followed .If Setka or the Union rep had come out and spoken to the members I doubt the destruction and need for police to be heavy handed in breaking up those members congregating would have followed. The main stream media totally misrepresent the events of the day and blatantly lying as to the real facts of what is the main issue of members. After viewing all of Day2 of the member’s protest today I don’t see the issue of ‘no jab -no work’ going away soon.

  4. it has to come to this! in older time we would have said: what was happening to make people react like this!? ….so what really is happening? and of course we know.

  5. The anger against the corporate media is understandable, they have been lying to us for decades. I think being booed by every person who walked past would have been just as effective, especially if it was accompanied by ceaseless condemnation of 7 news.

  6. The supine, gutless, propaganda machine referred to as “The Mainstream Media” has no right of complaint. They are in this public manipulation business up to their necks!

    They headline the “brutality” of a man holding out his arm to stop a horse being sicced over the top of him, yet they completely go silent when a defenceless 70 year old granny is smashed to the ground and pepper sprayed by vicious mentally defective cops. Selective journalism in the public interest, no doubt.

    There’s no need to mention the rest of the media lockstep propaganda and manipulation which has been perpetrated not just during covid but over many years. Just look at the record.

  8. Perhaps the MSM might be more accountable to Australians and the truth if the guy who took Paul Dowsley by the throat gave him a bit of a shake. Any journalist who denigrates lifesaving Ivermectin is responsible for many deaths and should be dragged before Nuremberg Ii, tried, convicted and executed.

    I guess we are talking thousands of journalists here, not one of whom will be missed. Rest in pieces.

  11. It’s not exactly as if most of the MSM shills have been on the side of truth and the people, is it! They happily joined the propaganda, disinformation and censorship campaign against the truth instead of keeping the bastards honest. And it’s not because of simple stupidity, is it!

  12. The media’s censorship and cancellation of information regarding treatments for Covid is a crime against the public’s right to information.

    The MASSIVE, manipulative promotion campaigns for the injections are also a crime against the people’s right to informed consent.

    The disgusting government blackmail strategy of lockups until vaccinated is yet a further a crime against the people. No state has the right to deprive the people of their basic human rights so the politicians can enforce their will and agenda.

    Sorry, shills! TRUTH, NOT MANIPULATION AND PROPAGANDA, IS WHAT IS ALWAYS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. Anything else is a crime against the people and must result in serious consequences for the perpetrators.

  13. Ed… please get your priorities allocated at some kind of coherent level. The significant factors are:

    Almost without exception, journalists in Australia are actively complicit in mass murder, including that of children.

    This genocide would be impossible without the journalists and presenters proselytising the lies about sars flu 2, the PCR, and the mRNA jabs.

    As we are resisting genocide, by definition, this is war. We are struggling in the portal of open civil war in our Australia… A WAR FACILITATED BY JOURNALISTS. My values align with the Nuremberg Trials, following which such propagandists were excecuted.

    If you don’t think this is war, just watch what happens to southern construction workers. The Crisis Response police are out to kill.

  15. ED: On the basis of Tony’s contributions to date I believe Tony is simply trying to be helpful and well meaning. I doubt that he was attempting to be deprecating in any way. I would be much surprised if most decent thinking people did not consider you contributions and efforts to be more than well placed and especially much appreciated.
