The Melbourne woman, named as Sally, was approached by A Current Affair as she sat in her car on Tuesday, unable to pass through the Extinction Rebellion crowd. “Dad passed away 10 months ago and Mum passed away on Sunday at home in that building,” she said, fighting back tears. “I’m supposed to be there having hospital beds picked up, mats picked up, lifting machines picked up. I heard that these d**kheads were here yesterday so I rescheduled it, and I’ve come along this morning (and) they’re here again.” She added that she could try do a loop and park further away and walk but leaving her house that morning she fell and dislocated her knee. “I don’t know what I’m going to do,” she said. “I just want to get to the home so I can start organising all the clean-up, medicines and drugs that are there from the palliative care and the hospital bed that Mum died in, and I’m sitting here. D**kheads, I don’t even know what they’re on about, what’s it for?” Reporter Reid Butler told Sally it was “for the environment” and “civil disobedience” was the tactic.
