This from Sarah Joseph in The Conversation is perfectly argued. Says everything I think on the issue and more. I really love the way she framed the issue.
I note that criticisms being made about this protest action by artists were remarkably similar in nature to criticisms made about feminist activism, generally, in Australia in recent times. Why the preoccupation by some in the left with constantly tearing down actions by others in the left? The consistency of the targets for attack have begun to reveal some interesting inconsistencies in the framework of the critics. It looks personal.
