Chief Minister Michael Gunner
Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner says his wife and son had to flee their home over the weekend as anger over his vaccination rules hits fever pitch in the Top End.
Demonstrators yelled out Mr Gunner’s home address and threatened to attack him at a rally held in Darwin on Saturday — after the leader introduced some of the world’s toughest mandate laws last week.
Mr Gunner told Sky News Australia he was extremely worried about his wife and son’s safety.
“The priority was obviously people knew where we lived, it was at a rally it was on the internet, you had no idea who was watching and my clear instinct was obviously don’t be at the house, the advice we received was don’t be at the house and so Kristy and Hudson got out of the house,” he said.
It’s understood the NT police Territory Response Group was sent to patrol Mr Gunner’s house on Saturday night, but the Chief Minister would not comment on the security details.
“I think people understand for good reasons I can’t provide details on what the security precautions are or have been to make people safe,” he said.
“We don’t want people knowing how we’re making sure that myself and my family are safe but obviously precautions had to be taken because of the threats that were made and my address was given out - and not just given out, people were encouraged to go to my house.”
Police say at least 1000 people were at Saturday’s rally, while organisers believe up to 3000 people attended.
Anger spilled over after the NT Government announced mandatory Covid-19 vaccines for anyone working in contact with a vulnerable person.

These despots, both home and abroad, should cut their losses and simply declare the pandemic as being over. Period. No more mandates, masks, lockdowns, etc. If they don’t wise up, there might be a Ceaușescu remedy in their future.
Ours don't. Maybe someday, ...
The minister’s claim: “Hey Ted Cruz, g’day from the Northern Territory in Australia. Here are some facts. Nearly 70,000 Texans have tragically died from Covid. There have been zero deaths in the Territory. Did you know that?” he wrote.
Hat tip to Bracken.
Piano wire was very popular in Europe after WW II - and not for fixing pianos.
Chief Minister Gunner has everything he deserves coming to him in the future.
I woke up to this and it was the start of a beautiful day. Y’all tyrants out there paying attention?
“toughest mandates” is a nice euphemism for “tyrannical diktats.”
Should leave the family out of it. The target is this Nazi.
Unfortunately, this is what needs to happen. These tyrants need to run scared.
Australia's Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner didn't spare any of his targets' families from the consequences of his Pfascist diktat.
His family can testify at his trial at Nuremberg II. They can list all the things they kept that were denied to others starting with food, clothing, and shelter.
Sadly, it won’t end anywhere until they pay with their jobs and are shamed into oblivion. I fear that people will start killing them out of hand for their crimes against humanity.
What happens in the real world is that when the tyrants break the rules, those who are their victims stop paying attention to the rules.
