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.

This Friday’s Mullum Farmer’s Market has been cancelled due to the decimation of the site by rain.

Mullum Farmers Market is sunnier times

With Mullumbimby receiving the state’s highest rainfall over the past 24 hours, the town’s normally resilient showground has been reduced to a quagmire.

All outside activities have been cancelled until the ground recovers.

‘Mullum Farmers Market will look forwards to seeing all of your smiling faces next week and thank the community for your continued support,’ market manager Allie Godfrey told The Echo.

The town has already copped more than 200mm of rain in the first week of April, including 83mm on Tuesday alone.

According to forecasters, the skies are set to start clearing on Friday, providing a much needed break for local storm and waste water infrastructure as well as people’s homes.
