Greg Donnelly said he was ‘disappointed’ more of his colleagues didn’t attend the ‘war on women’ event.
“I am more than happy to be publicly associated with this and to be recognised as a co-conveyor,” Donnelly said
“I am, dare I say it, a little bit disappointed that more of my Labor colleagues wouldn’t join me.”
Donnelly, a Labor Right member, praised the women that spoke as “standing up to something which in fact…is in its essence, quite authoritarian and totalitarian.”
He invited his “male colleagues, in this parliament and all around Australia” to push back and say “this is not acceptable,” and “you will not treat people…women in particular, this way”Last year, he clashed with then-NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard as he raised concerns over puberty-blocking treatment at a Newcastle gender clinic.
