Lord Mayor explains how council may clear Carlton Garden campers

Protesters are planning to camp there as part of the Extinction Rebellion disruption.
Sally Capp told Neil Mitchell business confidence was just starting to rebound after Melbourne’s lockdowns and now was not the time for disruptive protests.
She said council had made that point to protest organisers.
“Over and over and over again,” she said.
“This is a critical time for local businesses to be able to recover.”
