This Is Enough – The Anzac Spirit

I am 64 years old and I was a midwife in the State Of Victoria for over a quarter of a century.

Today I witnessed one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen a woman do.

In state parliament, MP Catherine Cumming, stood to tell the story of horrible mistreatment of a kind, gentle, deeply loved, homeless man by 6 Victorian police officers.

She stated that this man “was asleep in a sleeping bag. He was forcibly dragged out of his sleeping bag by six police officers and dragged around the steps of the parliament to the side of the parliamentary precinct. Roughly handled. The footage is there. This is not on. This is not the way that you actually treat Victorians. A homeless man. A young, homeless, articulate man.”

“This is enough.” Dr Cumming insisted emphatically. “Enough of the way that you talk about these protestors, but disgusting the way you’ve treated them on these steps while we were in here debating yesterday.”

To those of us long suffering Victorians who want to see democracy protected and human rights respected, these words are wonderful.

The ten years that Catherine Cumming spent in the Army Reserve may be one of the best investments in its people that Australia has ever made.

God Bless you, Catherine.

I pray that you are given the strength to work to save Victorians from their sufferings under one of the worst governments in the Western World.
