Protesters get personal

The protesters caught up with the Premier at his electorate office and he was not impressed. Photo courtesy of Channel Nine.

A man jumped the Premier's fence and chained himself to the gate when Aboriginal protesters set up camp outside Colin Barnett's house while his wife was inside. Howard Sattler challenged the group’s ring leader Marianne Mackay to give out her address on air.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Maybe a group of protestors should go around to these protestors homes and see how they like it. Pretty bad form going to the Premiers house just because he wouldn't meet with them. Why did the papers have to be handed to him directly anyway? It doesn't guarantee he will look at the documents. Also bad form giving away where Barnett lives. They have named the suburb on their tent embassy website and the photos have basically given away where he lives. I noticed Marianne from this interview has put her phone number up on the website but still wouldn't answer Howards question of where she lived. Bit hypocrital and gutless.

  • Once again, protesting on a work day and also saw some school aged children in the photos on another website and their Noongar Tent Embassy facebook page. So still getting handouts from the Government/Tax payer and not having to work and also children being taken out of school to protest.

  • What a joke and absolute disgrace for these protestors to go to the Premiers house. They really have overstepped the mark here. This Marianne Headland (her real name)didn't even have the guts to say where she lived when asked by Howard. Good point there too by Howard. How would she like it if a group of protestors showed up at her home and harrassed her family? How come all the Heirisson protestors have gone back to their homes now that the weather is cold and the rain has arrived? Fine weather protestors? Also the Premier of the state does not have any control of a law made by the Queen, so they are wasting their time. Why did the documents have to be delivered to him in person? These could have been emailed, faxed or posted which is the correct way of doing things.
