A Party at Parliament.
Crowds gathered on the steps of Victorian parliament to celebrate Daniel Andrews’ resignation as Premier of Victoria yesterday afternoon.
The ecstatic group joined together in a countdown to 5pm, which signified the moment Andrews officially stepped down as leader of the state after almost a decade in power.
Afterwards, revellers listened to music, danced, sung chants, wore party hats and even drank champagne and beer to mark the occasion.
A large police presence was established in central Melbourne as trams and traffic had to be diverted to make way for the afternoon demonstration.
Many of those attending sported t-shirts or banners demanding justice for lockdowns, for which Victoria was subjected to the longest periods of any location in the world under Andrews.
Some crowd members brought down signs, T-shirts and banners to mark their feelings on the occasion.
Others wore ‘Make Australia Great Again’ merchandise and held banners which included the words ‘Ban Dan’ and ‘Dictator Dan wanted for crimes against Victoria’.
‘This is just the start, we are pushing for justice,’ a lead organiser told the crowd of an event.
‘The system isn’t working in the interests of the people,‘ a man addressing the crowd said.
The celebrations would continue after the sun had gone down, with many soaking in some positive energy after three years of hell in #OccupiedVictoria.
Andrews announced his resignation yesterday, after winning three elections for the Victorian Labor Party.
He will leave a divisive legacy for many reasons, but many are left wondering just how Victoria will ever recover, and if his replacements aren’t just more actors cut from the same cloth.
Either way, there was certainly no fond farewell for the departing Premier from those who packed the parliament’s steps, and Dan might go down as the most notorious politician in the state’s history.
Enjoy, Victorians! You have earned it!
