Tipper Truck Convoy Brings Melbourne to a standstill over the cost of diesel

A convoy of tipper trucks converged on Parliament House in Victoria bringing parts of the city and adjoining freeways to a standstill as the group protested against the government’s lack of interest in implementing a fuel levy to ease the pressures being put on tipper business operators and their families by the high price of diesel.

An excerpt from their call-out to protest reads:

“We can no longer be expected to shoulder the extremely high price of diesel all on our own. It’s already unprofitable to run a tipper and we know the price of diesel will rise by 22 cents per litre on the first of September. Plant hire companies and clients must start paying a fuel levy to help us cover these costs.”

  2. Soon to be classed as terrorists…
    We let the take our freedoms now they take a mile…say no to renewables
    Co2 is not a problem…goverments rich elites and media brainwashing is the problem

  3. Cars should be out there too blocking the roads.
    Fuel over $2 a litre is BS, there is no reason for it but greed.
    This is far from over, as Elon Musk's driverless AI trucks will be hitting the road soon and taking truckies jobs.

  4. Yayyyyyyy.
    Goosebumps. The truckers are our spine. If they talk, government needs to listen!!!!
    Love to all the truckers 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

  5. When will people realize that the government couldn't care less about the people, they don't now and they never ever will.
    The people who work in the government at the highest Echelon including the prime minister don't pay for anything so why would they care about us. They see us as eaters nothing more nothing less just give us your tax.

  6. Commo Dan is not going to care just like last year, ,he is CCP owned and wants to dictate like tge CCP China leader treats the people, goid on you truckies
