Dear Humans

As you may or may not know, there have been race riots in Sydney over the last couple of days.

It is an emotional time for me. I never thought i would ever see this.

As a consequence, i will be reconsidering my residence in this country, for as much as i love it, i dont feel safe here anymore.

Forgive me if i dont post, i am just very very upset.

only heard a bit. sounds horrific .... but no place is without xenophobia. i am sure you have heard the slogan: "we are everywhere" == but so are they!

I just got off the phone to my Dad. Cars outside his house near Cronulla where showered with beer bottles and one of his neighbours injured last night.

Since I work at Cronulla, he rang and asked me not to go to work. I feel safe down there during the day...there are more police than civilians including police on horses on the sands of our beaches.

On Sunday night, I was driving home from Bondi and ended up driving right through the riots in Kymeeagh and Brighton. I had no idea it was there and I can tell you I was scared...40 police cars, 10 ambulance and people running everywhere.

Yes it is awful, yes it is SO sad that I have to finish every phone call to local friends and family with "stay safe" at the moment, but this country is still one of the best and safest places in the world to live.

Stay safe,

Frangi xxx

free - i know my dear. i know. its just very disheartening.

frangi - i dunno dear. i dont exactly look australian, and what i saw was really frightening. I just never expected anything like this. I dont want to have to walk down streets and get funny looks and stuff. Its just fucked. Everyone needs a Bex and lie down. Dunno, maybe i just feel alone.
