⁃ TN Editor [/su_note] Australia is about to go into full lockdown again which will paralyze the economy, drive more small businesses out of existence. Citizens are completely fed up with their authoritarian government, are demanding change and that their Premier Daniel Andrews resign immediately. ⁃ TN Editor [/su_note]

Hundreds of protestors have stormed Melbourne‘s CBD to rally against the looming five-day lockdown coming into force across Victoria from midnight.

Premier Daniel Andrews on Thursday said Victoria had ‘no choice’ but to enter a snap statewide lockdown to contain a growing outbreak of the COVID-19 Delta variant.

The decision came after the state recorded two new cases, bringing its cluster to 18, which was sparked when NSW‘s outbreak was imported into Melbourne by a Sydney removalist working interstate.

But hundreds of angry residents did not agree with the premier, demanding he be sacked for plunging the state into its fifth lockdown since the pandemic began in March 2020.

Despite the wet weather, Victorians poured into Flinders Street holding up signs calling for freedom, with some reading ‘lockdown kills’ and ‘I have a choice’.

Organisers leading the procession held a huge blue banner with the name of an anti-lockdown website scrawled across it, as they roused fellow protestors through a megaphone.

The lockdown objectors chanted as they marched through the streets, just hours before stay-at-home orders will be rolled out across the state.

Face masks were noticeably absent among the crowd, only visible on the police officers standing guard to monitor the demonstration.

This is despite face masks being mandatory indoors and outdoors when unable to socially distance since 11.59pm on Wednesday.

Some signs appeared to espouse anti-vax sentiments while others suggested the pandemic was not real, with slogans such as ‘government lies’ and ‘a real pandemic needs no advertisement’.

The demonstrators, who have titled their community the Melbourne Freedom Rally, have five main objectives they are striving to achieve through their protest, according to their website.

They include an end to Covid restrictions, an investigation into the handling of the coronavirus response, Mr Andrews’ resignation, no vaccine mandates, and full refunds for those who have been fined for breaching coronavirus-related directives.

Instead of restrictions, they recommend the state adopt Sweden’s controversial Covid strategy, where the virus was allowed to run rampant within the community without lockdowns, with ‘voluntary protective measures’ for those who are vulnerable.

They are also seeking a ‘Pandemic Royal Commission’ to ‘find any evidence of criminal activity, conflicts of interest, corruption, and incompetence in the government and medical system’ and have all doctors who ‘knowingly falsified death certificates’ to wrongly include Covid charged with fraud.

‘Daniel Andrews must resign as the Premier of Victoria, and nominate a successor that will enact all other demands,’ the website reads.

‘[He] must be held accountable for the Crimes against Humanity he has committed upon the Victorian People.’

Covid19 looks to me like a good crisis that will never go to waste. From what I hear. Covid19 could have been eradicated over a year ago with medicines already on the market.

Good for Aussies.
If they’re going to destroy us, make them earn it!!!

coochin kid

In am offended to think you speak of a protest in Melbourne as representing Australia
That is equivalent to saying something that happened in San Francisco is United States.
Australia is a bloody big place I live three thousand miles from Melbourne and I assure that Melbourne doesn’t represent my Australia

Australia is indeed a big place, but most of its comparatively small population lives in a small number of widely separated big cities of which Sydney and Melbourne are the biggest. Melbourne is where Ned Kelly was hanged and where Card. Pell was for a time the Catholic archbishop. What happens three thousand miles away holds less interest for Melburnians than for you.

Sounds like things are not to good there. But this doesnt apply to Queensland for an example! Things seem to be much easier there.

This is a great article! Will Australia, via NSW, be the first country to stop this vile nonsense in its tracks?

I heard today from Senator Rand Paul on Hannity that the Delta variant, while more contageous, is less serious than the original variant. So what’s all the panicing over a less virulent strain of a virus that is over 99% survivable and the risk groups have been clearly identified. Just another stellar example of politcal power over intelligence.

Rand Paul loves the vaccines, too. So…

Elle

YES, Melbourne!!!!! Do what is necessary to extirpate the tyrants.

pamino

Yes, but why are they marching up Flinders St. east of Swanston St.? Where are they going? Or doesn’t it matter?

Jeremy Lamb

There you go, organize everything over the internet, just like good little pawns.
