Occupy Melbourne 2.0- What Goes Around Comes Around

And so it begins. A few days after what may have been the largest protest in Melbourne history (estimates run from between 75000 to 100 000) against the Andrews government and their horrendous and insane “Pandemic Bill” we now find ourselves occupying Parliament. Exactly 10 years and one month to the day after the Occupy movement took over the world in 2011.

Many may not even remember the Occupy movement or Occupy Melbourne, which inspired the creation of this website one year after it’s inception. But the Occupy movement was a worldwide protest against bank bailouts ,corporate theft and political corruption – in other words a protest against fascism.

While the New York protest Occupy Wall Street originally gained some decent numbers for several weeks, the Occupy movement itself slowly faded after weeks or months or police evictions that wanted to prevent protesters from “camping”. Here in Melbourne we had a massive eviction from what used to be City Square and then we played cat and mouse with the police , the council and various groups of drug addicted homeless people (who were welcome in the movement but also had a somewhat disruptive influence at times).

The far left (represented by Socialist Alternative) tried to take over the movement initially, but were shouted down fairly quickly, leaving a motley crew of protesters from all persuasions and a small group of thinkers who were too far ahead of their time to be believed by the mainstream population who largely ignored them.

Despite those obstacles, Occupy Melbourne was one of the longest running “Occupy’s” in the world, running for 2 months and culminating in the famous tent monster parade where tents became clothes and could therefore not be moved on. Later the movement morphed into a Free Shop in 2012 and a Free Kitchen, which ran until 2014.

Then we were asked what we were protesting about and now , here today, the answer has finally occurred to tens of thousands of people : Something is wrong when ordinary people are not allowed to have control over their lives due to massive corporate and political interference.

Then it was the bank bailouts that governments supported with taxpayers money (mainly in the US and Europe) and the fallout from the GFC (Global Financial Crisis) which came about through corporate greed , now it is a pandemic of which many are not too sure that it actually is a pandemic, where the only winners appear to be huge corporations and the political class and democracy has gone out the window , possibly for good.

Not only does Occupymelbourne.net wish all the luck in the world to the brave souls who are now venturing on this very tricky path of occupying, we also wish that you have the numbers this time and that this time we the people can actually win, because this time it actually seems possible.

How does it feel to be on the right side of history ?

30 000 Protest Pandemic Bill

The usual spin and misrepresentation from the mainstream media about the protest in Melbourne yesterday, where 30 000 turned up to peacefully demonstrate against the Draconian Pandemic Bill. “Preaching human rights as those among them behaved like animals” “Unvaccinated cohort shrinking by the day”was the verdict by Channel 9. “1000 protesters” was the spin by Sky News. The channel 7 clip was muted , so no idea what bullshit they claimed.

Half my family has been vaccinated, the other half hasn’t, but we are not divided over a medical treatment like so many appear to be, there are bigger issues at stake here. If this bill passes you will have no rights, vaccinated or not. I dare say a good number of the protesters were themselves vaccinated.


In the city shops are empty, cafes and restaurants are mostly empty. It may be different in the suburbs, but it looks like people do not want to show their papers to be given the privilege to shop. The ice cream shop (Spring Street Grocer) next to the Imperial pub near Parliament made a killing serving thousands of protesters who brought their kids and dogs to this family friendly event, which appeared to be happy and peaceful with smiles all around, despite the seriousness of the matter.

A few Trump flags. Maybe he would like the job once we sacked Dan?

Kill The Bill- Sack Dan Andrews – Make Victoria Great Again

Real Rukshan Protest Highlights

After protesting on and off for the past year, those who did not support the Victorian government’s handling of the pandemic (To  put it mildly) , came together for a big showdown yesterday against the permanent pandemic legislation the Andrews government wants to install once the temporary state of emergency expires for the final time sometime in mid December. 

 

The issue is, that once the state of emergency has expired , with it go the mandates : no more masks, no more lockdowns and no more mandatory vaccines for workers. This means that while the pandemic is far from over, the Andrews government would have no more control over managing it and people would have to decide for themselves, how to manage their health and make their own decisions as responsible adults. Wow, what a concept!

Of course the MSM will labels these protesters as anti-vaxxers  of the lunatic conspiracy fringe, when clearly these protests are not just about vaccines, but about freedom from government coercion and interference in general. Many of those who are protesting are in fact vaccinated, but want the same rights  for all and no segregation on the basis of medical status or any other status and  the right to free speech and free choice. The bill that Dan Andrews has introduced would give him ultimate powers without checks and balances and if this is voted in by brainless MPs, then civil war is a possible outcome for Victoria.

 

Because mask mandates have been lifted and freedom of movement has been restored (for now) in the world’s most locked down city, the police yesterday did not interfere with protesters, bash them or shoot them with rubber bullets and many commented on how lovely the officers were. Lovely? These are the same officers who will restrain you and put you in government specially built camps for the non-compliant if this pandemic bill passes. So please check yourself and do not trust the police simply because they are playing nice now. They are not nice. They are willing to sell their soul for a government paycheck. These are not good people, if they can even be considered people.  None of them .   If they were , they would not have done what they did, simple. The good ones resigned, and that is all there is to it. 

The good people are those who fighting for their children now, the people who are fighting for freedom and the people who refused to take the jab to keep their job, the people who turned up yesterday and will continue to turn up every day until this fight has been won.

 

The world is watching Melbourne  now.  How does it feel to be on the right side of History?

House Of Cards

Despite governments all over the world telling us that the only way out of Covid restrictions is mass vaccination (with a non-approved gene therapy that has not completed it’s stage 3 trials), we now know that this is impossible, as the so called vaccines do not prevent the spread and have possibly created the infamous “delta” variant and will create future vaccine resistant variants..

Endless re-vaccination with endless boosters while keeping restrictions or using “vaccine” passports are the government sponsored consequence. And while many perceive this as a threat, the fact remains that these measures are not enforceable, not in the short term and certainly not in the long run. The virus will always get out.

Modern Medicine cannot stop the spread of a respiratory virus. And neither can politicians.

A year ago we all knew that the only way out of the pandemic is herd immunity, which is why the original lockdowns were about “flattening the curve”

Then, as the possibility of a vaccine became tangible, the lies started. Unreliable PCR tests, useless mask and social distancing rules, people that died with Covid rather than from Covid, and most of all the political and media suppression of drugs that work like hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin.

The reason is, vaccines are big business and they are an even bigger business when every man , woman and child on this planet will have to get the jab indefinitely.

Here in Victoria, we have had the most weeks of lockdown anywhere in the world (About to enter week 35, which is more than 6 months overall, not counting mask mandates and other ineffective bullshit). Most of last year’s lockdown of Melbourne was in pursuit of a virus elimination policy (whatever happened to flatten the curve?) UNTIL we got a vaccine. Another goalpost has been shifted now, because although most at risk people had their shots early, now it’s suddenly about EVERYBODY getting the jab.

It is therefore no surprise, that Victorians, especially those under 40, who are at least risk form the virus, are getting “sick”, of the restrictions. They have lost complete faith in their government who has lied to them for 17 months and who are now saying”If you just stay home, we will open up”. Yeah, sure, tell me another..

Young people are now saying to the government “You are always going to find another reason to lock us down or force us into restrictions, no matter what we do, so why should we comply ? The result is mass protests that will continue and grow, as well as secret gatherings and street parties, not to mention the ridiculous “singles bubble” or the “partner bubble”, which cannot be enforced and have been “misappropriated” from the beginning. Sure, there are (sadly) dobbers, but they can only dob after an event, by then it’s too late and the superspreader event has already occurred.

The result: the virus will continue to produce mystery cases and therefore eternal lockdowns and eternal border closures by governments that have painted themselves into a corner with their unrealistic policies.

Hopefully people are waking up while this house of cards is falling down all around them . Now an increasingly desperate Dan Andrews has brought back the dreaded curfew between 9pm and 5am, as if that will stop increasingly popular street parties. Every so called health measure the government has implemented has been completely useless. What good is a lockdown if it only kicks the can down the road ? Some us us could see this trainwreck coming a year ago, some people can see it now, others will wake up next month or at Christmas. Most will wake up eventually .

This only stops when we say no.



The Real News – Police lose control of massive Melbourne rally to end lockdown

Around 15 000 protesters came together in Melbourne on Saturday, many of them were first time protesters who came out because they “had enough”. For the first time since the lockdown protests started a year ago, the police were vastly outnumbered , as protesters broke through police lines , the police ultimately conceded defeat and blocked off roads so protesters could march through streets unhindered. Despite this, after the march finished and people had dispersed, a few arrests were made, one of them Avi Yemini’s security guard.

Stairman Dan Andrews claimed he didn’t know what they were protesting against, but he still ended the lockdown three days later? Coincidence? I think not.

Sydney and Melbourne kick off Worldwide Freedom Demonstrations

Crowds of up to 15 000 gathered in both cities and despite police presence and arrests, they have made a good showing against the ongoing lockdowns and taking of our freedoms.

Despite the politicians clamoring on about safety, lockdowns are a failed health policy that achieves nothing apart from kicking the can down the road and ensuring that the virus keeps mutating in a way that forces us to play endless catch up to reach herd immunity., even with a vaccine available.

To force the young and healthy to stay at home or vaccinate against a virus that is of no danger to them is unprecedented in human history and potentially dangerous.

Politicians love to lock down as it keeps them popular, but lockdowns were never meant to be a longterm measure. The fact that they keep happening is proof that things have gone completely out of control and has left some to speculate that there is a more sinister agenda than “health and safety”.

Of course the media are all over it and blaming “violent clashes” on protesters rather than the police who were out in droves and on horseback.

But with the delta virus spreading like wildfire in Sydney, despite lockdowns, it looks like the chickens have finally come home to roost and the Australian fantasy of virus suppression will soon be squashed.

Stairman Dan’s Comeback Message

Melbourne Freedom Rally 20/3/21

VicStapo harassing innocent flag bearers

They were accused of protesting at the Shrine of Remembrance, but in reality they were detained on the basis of their political affiliation, as Daniel Andrews has declared war on “far-right” dissenters (meaning everybody who disagrees with Chairman Dan and his American counterpart Beijing Biden)

Vicpol clearly wanted their names and addresses for the data base of potential “terrorists” they are building.

As the discussion heats up, the flag bearer yells at the police officer : “You would shoot us if you were told to.”

Australia 2020 or the German Democratic Republic 1980, you decide.
