Mid-Late September has seen extraordinary reactionary mayhem in Melbourne. Anti-vaccination to anti-lockdown to far-right forces smashed the  CFMEU office, took to city streets and were repressed by riot police. To make sense of these events, we hear from long time anti-fascist, unionist, writer, Arrernte woman and Greens candidate, Celeste Liddle. We also hear more broadly about the left, the need to be critical of policing, failures of the state's responses to the pandemic, community responses and where to from here.
