Locals Stand For Choice In The Park
With the looming mandatory requirement for staff to be fully vaccinated by 17 December 2021, citizens of Queensland have become increasingly concerned for their future freedoms regarding choice surrounding the vaccine and their ability to be employed, conduct their business, or indeed just to take their child to the cinema or go to a cafe if they remain unvaccinated.
We were recently invited to come along to a gathering in the park to hear these fears voiced by regular community members.
Members of the group were keen to make clear that it was not about being vaxed or unvaxed, but instead it was about ordinary people being worried for their loss of choice and what all of the mandates mean for them in terms of financial stability – and freedom. They wanted to be seen as a support group where people could come along, feel safe and respected no matter what their choice – and to be heard!
