@oscillator atm protests are happening in Australia to release Djokovic. our Australian government is saying that he's free to leave whenever he likes, he won't be allowed back in country for 3 years though because of this Visa bungle.
this story is funny as and most people in Australia just think he's a total idiot. all of this drama could have easily all been avoided if he just got vaccinated but instead he's decided to make a big deal and fight the mandatory vaccination laws.
Melbourne Australia was recently declared the #1 most locked down city in the world. and this rich millionare Tennis Player thinks he's above the rules and thinks he can just fly in and dodge the vaccine rules that the entire population of Melbourne has had to follow for the last 2 years now?
we don't care how good at tennis you are. he needs to follow the same rules as everyone else here if he wants to come to our city and take part in our AUSTRALIAN tournament.

My opinion is that thousands of athletes, musicians, business people, and travelers all are in the same boat as Djokovic, but the onus is on the person entering the country to make sure they have a valid visa and such. This can all be corroborated before you even hit the border. The consequences of being denied at the border are also transparent. From my understanding of the story, he knowingly tried to oppose the rules.
Now, I'm not defending these overly militarized and unhospitable border guards and airports that have plagued the planet since 2001. I absolutely hate that bullshit. But this, to me, isn't some aggressive abuse of power. It's just that someone's international work permit wasn't sorted out properly.
i don't agree with anti vax protesters but this news basically just proves that you just need to be a rich celebrity in order to bypass government laws that the rest of us normal people have to abide by.
that's right GTFO outta here!!!!
Well he's finally being deported
