What even is this news story! Members of the Communist Party1 running a Sunday soup kitchen for the homeless in Adelaide’s CBD, told to stop by some DHS senior bureaucrat who tells them they’re “creating dependency” among Aboriginal people as if she thinks they’re fucking wild native animals and not real, actual human beings who need to eat on Sundays. Oh, and she runs a pub in the local area, and is concerned about rough edges around the gentrifying area being bad for business 🤯

  1. btw in Australia this is not the Communist Party that existed during the Cold War, but a more recent reboot ↩︎
