Labor too late in responding to multicultural communities

A funding announcement for multicultural communities across Victoria by the Labor Government is an acknowledgement that they have let them down during this pandemic. The Andrews Labor Government is now scrambling to sort out the issues arising from its previous neglect of these communities.

Members of our multicultural communities are amongst some of our most vulnerable people and they have been caught up in this pandemic since the beginning.

The sudden “hard lockdown” of thousands of residents in the North Melbourne and Flemington public housing towers last month by Daniel Andrews left many of our vulnerable members of our multicultural communities without help and in fear.

Even after so many months, information being provided to our multicultural communities has been lacking, outdated or translated incorrectly, with many residents still confused or unsure of what is happening and what they need to do to protect themselves.

Victoria’s multicultural communities have been bitterly let down during the COVID-19 crisis by this Labor Government and Daniel Andrews as Premier wears responsibility for that.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, Neil Angus:

“It is very disappointing to learn that, despite a lot of talk, the Andrews Labor Government has clearly failed to adequately assist Victoria’s multicultural community during the COVID-19 crisis.”
