It is about 1/2 a k from my work. Those poor people
Absolutely rediculous that things like this are happening in our country. Thoughts are with everyone involved in the situation today.
We have been told to lock our doors etc...which is a massive over reaction if you ask me
Isz - I work down at King Street Wharf and we've been advised to stay inside. We are a long way from Martin Place.
I had to pop out quickly and it was pretty quiet for 12 in the city
Better safe than sorry mate
Stay safe people.
We are not too far, maybe 400 m or so and access to our floor is locked and we cannot leave. I didn't have breakfast and didn't bring in lunch!!!!
Anyway I can't see this ending well. Poor people in the shop.
Hope all is resolved peacefully soon.
I hope this ends well for all, though it seems unlikely. The world we live in stinks.
Thoughts and prays to everyone affected by this. Please try to keep safe everyone.
We are the same now, but there is talk we can go soon
2 hostages died Rip
Amazing that this grub was on bail in the first place
Garts what time did you end up getting out?
Well thankfully it wasn't the terrorist attack that everyone was getting all worked up about. Just some complete and utter nutjob. Still little consolation for the families of the victims. How he was allowed out on bail is mind boggling given his history.
I left around 1pm as I had a lift and told work I wanted to take it otherwise transport home would be a nightmare.
Thankfully it was not a terrorist attack to the degree that everyone initially thought but imo it is still a form of terrorism. Some are saying IS had nothing to do with it but I disagree. Whilst he may have had no connection to IS they had been asking followers to commit these kinds of acts in Aus, US, UK etc. That helped drive it.
But yeah, how he was allowed out is baffling.
