Sky News host Paul Murray says by Tuesday evening it will be clear whether Australia is a country of laws or one of “finger waving” as the Sydney Black Lives Matter protests look to push ahead. “One where you must do what the police or the courts say, as opposed to whatever you feel like doing,” he said. It comes as Black Lives Matter protest organisers lost their appeal to hold a rally in the centre of Sydney on Tuesday. The NSW Court of Appeal today upheld the Supreme Court’s decision to block the protest, meaning those who attend could face fines and possible arrest. Mr Murray said these protests are no longer about the George Floyd murder which originally fueled the global movement. “It is about trying to use it as a Trojan horse to get their favoured politics over the line”.
