Red and purple

As I walked to work at 8am, I saw more and more people wearing red shirts. Around Fed Square, groups of three or four were smiling and drinking coffee.

A block later, four police men in fluoro yellow jackets walked towards me. Then a crowd of police in fluoro poured put of the police station on Flinders Lane. They all headed to Fed Square.

By mid-morning, it was clear what was going on.
