“Now the message has been put out there, that if you’re a social person that enjoys vibrancy that enjoys going out, making new friends, working hard, playing hard, that Sydney’s not the place for you. It’s really really sad. What makes a city is all these things, it is nightlife, it’s having a vibrant music scene.
The State Government has a responsibility to let the people know that, both tourists and residents that Sydney is open for business. There is still the message that you’re not welcome on the streets of Sydney at night time.”
