Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Mask of Freedom

Today in Mullumbimby I witnessed a woman blowing bubbles on people. She was walking with her dog and blowing bubbles over passers-by. What is usually the magical work of the fairy tribe, today it had a kind of aggression. The bubbles weren’t by accident. This was a ‘Fuck You’ to mask wearing. A fuck you to people wearing masks. A fuck you to the existence of this coronavirus.

Police are appealing for information from the public after a girl reported being approached by a man in Murwillumbah yesterday.

About 5.40pm (Wednesday 25 June 2014), the nine-year-old girl was alone on the front lawn of her home on Murwillumbah Street when a man crossed from the opposite side of the street and grabbed her by the arm.

The child pulled away from the man and ran inside. She was not injured.

The man has been described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his late teens to early 20s, about 185cm tall, and with a thin build.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing a white woollen hooded jumper, with hood pulled over head, and grey tracksuit pants.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
