Victoria Police has offered tea, scones and other assorted comforts to Extinction Rebellion protestors, who blocked off the Melbourne CBD today causing traffic chaos.
The protestors, trying to manufacture consent for the destruction of the Australian economy, blocked off parts of the Melbourne CBD and were rapidly attended to by officers bearing refreshments.
Chief Commissioner Shane Patton praised the quick-thinking officers and protestors.
“We’re terribly sorry we inconvenienced their protests by not attending to their needs sooner, unfortunately the tea was a little cold but we got to them in time,” Patton said.
“I salute the bravery of the protestors, as we face one of the greatest challenges of our time.”
Patton announced that they would be considering bravery awards for protestors that had glued themselves to tram tracks.
