Marching down the road

What kind of country is Australia becoming? The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

“The Federal Government has warned its workforce of 120,000 not to attend today’s mass rallies against its tough industrial relations legislation, circulating memos that public servants will be breaking the law even if they take a day of annual leave to protest.”

Looks like tens of thousands of workers care little for government intimidation. Protesting is a right in any democracy and some fly-by-night ideologue that tries to remove that right will justly face the wrath of the people.
