Sloboda Is Freedom

Monica is an Australian Christian of Greek Italian heritage, who cares deeply and thoughtfully about freedom.

Yesterday in Melbourne outside the Federal Court of Australia, among clean-living God-fearing Serbian people seeking justice for their mistreated national hero Novak Djokovic, I saw Monica’s confidence in her ability to stand up for freedom blossom. It was a wonderful sight.

She and I both learnt that Sloboda is the Serbian word for freedom.

Under the beloved colours of the Greek flag and holding a Serbian flag in front of her, Monica chanted the Serbian nickname of the best tennis player in the world “Nole. Nole. Nole.”

Djokovic himself is embarassed by the attention that has been focussed on him.

After suffering from the trauma of false imprisonment in a cheap hotel, he has the right to step back from the limelight to recover.

But those of us, like Monica, who care about freedom and who crave its restoration, have the right and responsibility to speak out against injustice.

Human rights matter.

Freedom matters.

Australia has to stop degrading itself with irrational acts of tyranny.

Fairness is a fair dinkum Aussie value which Australia needs to reclaim.

The world is watching.

The Australian Open Is Closed

Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world and the 2021 Australian Open tennis champion.

He has been excluded from the 2022 tournament because he has tried to exercise his rights to medical privacy and to withhold his consent to being injected with a medication he did not want.

It is a lie to call this year’s tournament “open”. It is closed to its own champion by stupid government tyranny.

This sort of disregard for fundamental human rights is now what characterises Australia.

It is no longer the land of the fair go.

True sporting values are dead.

I hate this tyranny with every ounce of my Australian born being.

The False Imprisonment of Novak Djokovic

The best tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, came to Australia last Friday to defend his Australian Open title and now he is imprisoned in a cheap hotel.

This is false imprisonment.

That is a crime.

I have demanded a police investigation into that crime from the police in front of the Federal Court where Novak’s lawyers are fighting for his rights.

Acting Seargeant Bonnie Heazlewood of Collingwood Police Station took my phone number.

Will the crime be investigated?

As always Boze Pravde, (Serbian for God Of Justice) is watching.

Today the world is watching.

This type of injustice in Australia has to stop.
