Scoop Images: Welcome Home Sue & Nandor

It was all warm fuzzies from the Greens as their MPs Nandor Tanczos and Sue Bradford returned home, after taking part in the S11 protests against the World Economic Forum in Melbourne on Monday and Tuesday.

Both suffered bruising as riot police broke through a blockade the Green MPs were a part of. Mr Tanczos and Ms Bradford were not prepared to show off their bruising at yesterday’s media conference. Mr Tanczos said their injuries didn’t compare to the dozens of protestors who needed medical attention or hospitalization at the hands of Melbourne police.
