Daniel Andrews says that he has not seen a viral video of a pregnant woman being arrested on a Facebook update, and has questioned why protesters from Black Lives Matters were not targeted in the same way.
The Victorian Premier has told media that he hasn’t seen the shocking video that has had millions of online views and lashed out at media demanding information.
“If Sky News is advocating that I should change my position and protests should be allowed, well, it’s an interesting day, then, isn’t it? Because my position will not be changing,” he said.
“With the greatest of respect. I don’t quite understand the point of the question. There are rules. We’re not gonna change those rules.
“Protests are not smart, they’re not safe, and they’re not lawful. And that’s where it’s at.”
Melbourne mum Zoe-Lee Buhler says she is now “too scared” to attend protests and described Daniel Andrews as “fear-mongering”.
