Tas police search for adrian pickett; warn public to not appr ‘unexpected’ pickets
PICKETERS are urging people to avoid blocking traffic at Melbourne’s city centre af강남출장마사지 강남출장샵ter an unexpected traffic mob blocked traffic for almost three hours earlier in the day.
Picket lines at the intersection of North and Victoria Streets were so strong that police took immediate action to clear them away, and even told the crowd they were “unexpected” picketers.
The group, known as #StopThePickets, staged the walk-out because they want to show the Labor party they stand with them against the Abbott government.
