If you’re having trouble reading the list, here’s a larger version. #springst  #COVID19Vic 

Even during stage 4, even during the curfew hours of 8pm-5am you can leave your house to escape family violence. You will not be fined. If you’re in immediate danger call 000. Supports are always available for you here:  #springst  #COVID19Vic

There's no doubt that #COVID19  has had a huge impact on student’s mental health & readiness for exams. So, this year, every Victorian student will be individually assessed & COVID-19 impacts will be reflected in their ATAR. More info here: #springst 

Everyone has done an extraordinary job this year. But it’s also ok to recognise that it’s taken a toll. Mental health services and supports are available, so if you or someone you know needs it, then please make use of them: #springst  #COVID19 

To every #VCE  student preparing for exams. I know there’s nothing worse than people telling you not to worry about your results. So I won’t say that. But please know that we’re all so desperate for your success & wellbeing. Use these services if you need to. They can help.

This pandemic has shown us all just how important it is that we look after ourselves & the people around us. But we also need to make sure our mental health system can get people the support they need during #COVID19  & beyond. More info here: #springst

Time's up. Survivors of abuse have suffered enough. 24 hours to commit to Redress. No ifs, no buts. We’ve already said no funding for institutions which do not sign up, & we’ll explore every sanction available for those evading their responsibility to survivors #springst  #auspol 

Members of the Order of Australia are meant to be about recognising the best of our nation. The most dedicated, those who serve their communities, the explorers and the leaders, the inspirers of us all. #springst  #auspol 

Tomorrow it will be against law for disclosures of child sexual abuse to be protected in a confessional. And the rights of children demand nothing less. #springst  #auslaw

Absolutely appalled at reports Malcolm Turnbull would cut whooping cough vaccine & put babies lives at risk #springst  #auspol 

Gay conversion therapy should always be condemned. It’s damaging. It’s not real. It’s cruel. It’s prejudice & hatred dressed up in quackery. It should be condemned. Always. #Auspol  #Springst 

The Rosie Batty’s, the Chrissie Foster’s, the fighters for what is right and just. Those who speak up for the victims when they can’t speak up for themselves. Yesterday I wrote to the Governor-General and asked him to strip this honour from Bettina Arndt.

Hmmmmmm. You can take down article.... but you can’t remove the facts of inequality, wage growth is too low for too many yet some get to live the low/no tax life of Riley. #auspol
