ABC News Daily; “COVID, conspiracies, and ‘confronting’ threats to MPs“:
“Australian politicians are being threatened with violence in volumes never seen before, with the Australian Federal Police receiving more than 500 reports of threats to MP’s safety – a number that’s tripled in three years. It’s been partly driven by the ‘Sovereign Citizen’ movement, with COVID-19 providing the perfect breeding ground for their conspiracies to spread. We speak to an expert in extremism about the role COVID’s had to play and an MP about her own experience.”
