Daniel Andrews has re-iterated his calls for unity, despite the introduction of vaccine passports that will see unvaccinated Indigenous Australians banned from pubs, sporting events, restaurants and cafes in Victoria.
The Premier was unapologetic about his stance.
“We’re all about equality, inclusion and diversity in this state, but if you aren’t vaccinated then you have no right to be mixing with the rest of us,” Andrews said.
“I’d like to make the point again that we’re all in this together and we recognise that this is First Nations land. Except if you’re an unvaccinated Wurundjeri or Yorta Yorta, at which point you aren’t welcome.”
Andrews said he was considering a ‘cultural exemption’ for vaccination status and that only demographics vital to his re-election chances, including BLM members, would be considered.
