The world’s sharpest lockdown and the massive intervention of the police against protests over the corona measures in Australia have now led to US Republicans wanting to resort to a means that is otherwise reserved for political opponents of the US: sanctions.
American Republicans urged the United States to impose sanctions on Australia this week in response to several cases where Australian police officers violently attacked “unauthorized protests”.
On Sunday said in an article Ben Kew – the English editor of the Florida Conservative magazine El American – That the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison “has to pay for such shameless human rights violations”, which happened against protesters as well as against other Australians through the strict COVID-19 lockdown measures.
What is taking place in Australia is unprecedented. This once thriving liberal democracy now more closely resembles a tyrannical regime. Whether it be through sanctions, boycotts or mere diplomatic warnings, the world must act.My column for @elamerican_https://t.co/7XDzCObXhd
