We don't want to work with these thugsWe don't want to work with these thugs
SCORES of factory workers say they don't want to work alongside the thugs who bashed cameramen outside a court where nine men were facing terrorism charges. Three of five men who savagely beat a Channel 7 cameraman and hit a Herald Sun photographer outside the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Tuesday work at the Safeway distribution centre in Broadmeadows. The centre, which employs more than 500 workers, has twice been brought to a standstill this week as management tries to ease rising tensions. At a crisis meeting yesterday dayshift workers were warned they faced the sack if caught bullying or harassing the men. But one angry worker told the Herald Sun he could not understand why parent company Woolworths was protecting them. "We don't want them here," he said. "Not all Muslims are terrorists, we know that. But beating up television crews . . . that's just un-Australian. "This is the country I love . . . the company needs to take a stance to protect us."
