MEDIA RELEASE: Successful Anti-Lockdown Flash Protest at Chadstone.
Police were caught completely off-guard today when a few hundred demonstrators descended on Chadstone for a flash protest.
We were able to get in and out in about 50 minutes with so far no known arrests or fines.
However Victoria Police spent many hundreds of thousands of dollars on PORT for today. We consider it their fine for opposing our freedom.
We’re going to relish in this victory.
Organisers attribute their success to careful planning and participants willingness to simply, trust the plan.
We apologise to Victorians on behalf of Victoria Police for their delayed and heavy handed response towards shoppers at Chadstone.
OK, here’s the deal: Victoria is signed up to the charter of human rights and therefore things like moving freely and protesting ARE NOT ILLEGAL. Neither the BLM protest nor the anti lockdown protests were illegal. All the fines are getting thrown out at the review stage because the government does not want them to go to court as they would be dismissed there too.
The government knows this and therefore let the BLM protest slide, as they agreed with the woke agenda. The anti-lockdown protests are much more dangerous to the government , therefore they are fighting them so hard, but the fines are null and void.
This is why the police are cracking down so hard on ordinary dissenters : it’s theatre to scare people off. But the veil of deceit is thin and more and more people are now beginning to see through it.
Basically it’s all a bluff and a charade, so I suggest that people take those health measures they are comfortable with and ignore the rest.
In many European countries the virus is spreading among the young while older more vulnerable people are being careful. Needless to say the death rate has plummeted there. No major lockdowns are in place. You can leave it up to the people, they are not stupid.
What is happening in Victoria right now is growing civil unrest against what amounts to an illegal dictatorship. It appears that this unrest is not just driven by everyday unemployed and isolated people, and not even a minority of conspiracy theorists, but also business owners, leaders and even the federal government.
It will certainly get very interesting in the coming weeks, but I suspect that it will be over sooner than we think.
From a Facebook post by Sarah Mills:
“Today Australians from all walks of life united together in all major cities for a peaceful protest against the draconian laws currently being implemented in Australia, especially for those in Victoria.Men, women and children all stood today for our freedom, our children’s freedom and for all of our basic human rights.Australia is staring down the barrel of a loaded gun and if we don’t take a stand now, before we know it that trigger will be pulled and life will never return to normal.
If you’ve ever wondered what you would have done during times of slavery, the holocaust, or the civil rights movement – take a look at yourself. Because you’re doing it right now.
This is no longer about a virus, This is about reclaiming our human rights and medical freedoms. Your family’s future quite literally depends on it. Today’s protests weren’t aggressive, they weren’t abusive. These men, women and children all stood side by side with love in our hearts and fire in our belly.Yet, despite each of us peacefully supporting each other aggressive arrests took place for no reason at all.
Several members of the community forcefully removed and thrown into police custody. None of the individuals did anything different from the rest of us, there was no justifiable reason for their arrest.Men violently slammed into police vehicles, simply for standing in peace. Women dragged into these cars simply for holding signs
.Let’s take a moment to reflect on the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act.
Section 16 – Peaceful assembly and freedom of association(1) Every person has the right of peaceful assembly.Right to peaceful assemblyThe right to peaceful assembly protects the right of individuals and groups to meet in order to exchange ideas and information, to express their views publicly and to hold a peaceful protest.And to The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
. Article 5.No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. (Victoria’s lockdowns are nothing short of cruel and inhuman)
Article 13.(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
Article 18.Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Article 19.Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Article 20.(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.
How can these men and women be thrown into police custody for simply exercising their human rights?It’s time to start paying attention. It’s time to unite. Will you remain silent? Or will you stand with the fearless freedom fighters who are fighting for you and your children, even in the face of your misguided hatred?As we fight for our freedom, which side of history will you be on?”
No covid related fines have been allowed to go to court, most (all) were thrown out at the review stage. Why? Because they contradict the charter of human rights in Victoria, which has not been suspended. The government does not want the fines to go to court, where they will be dismissed. The fines are nothing but a bluff to scare children.
Arrested while pregnant in front of her 2 kids in her own home…for a Facebook post. welcome to 1984.
Opinions are now illegal.
Trust Chairman Dandrews going too far yet again and making masks compulsory even in suburban outdoor settings, (well, unless you are smoking, drinking, eating or jogging). If he was wasn’t so stubbornly heavyhanded, he would attract less opposition , but he simply cannot stop implementing draconian rules that make no sense, except in the context of total obedience to the state.
The freeman-on-the-land movement, is a loose group of individuals who believe that they are bound by statute laws only if they consent to those laws. They believe that they can therefore declare themselves independent of the government and the rule of law, holding that the only “true” law is their own interpretation of “common law” based on the constitution
The problem is, it’s more a philosophy than law (An “alternative” law) and because the government is armed, their statutes are usually enforced at gunpoint.
Philosophically speaking, Freeman law does stand up as valid, and our society would be better if it did apply rather than our Australian 20+ million statutes and counting.
As it is, though,Freeman law is a game protesters play, sometimes well, if the police are inexperienced, but these day it’s more widely know about and the cops have upped their game. Also, it does not tend to stand up in court.
Still, the lady has a point and I applaud her for her courage: the mask law is probably unlawful and therefore she can just take her fine to court and will probably win, no need to wrestle with the cops.
Alternatively, she can just try to circumvent the law by smoking or drinking while wearing the mask on her head or a more or less useless scarf, which Dandrews declared acceptable and which proves the “law” has nothing to do with virus safety but rather exists to normalize mask wearing in order to create a dystopian society.
Melbourne has been plunged into another lockdown to ward of the spread of coronavirus. In a positively dystopian display of force, the police and the army have been deployed to form a ring of (blue) steel around metropolitan Melbourne, while drones and number plate recognition are used to catch trespassers into country Victoria or worse, NSW.
Chairman Dan is seen on TV urging people to stay home and follow the rules, which amount to nothing less but a kind of home imprisonment.
Have we learnt nothing from the previous 10 weeks of lockdown?
Lockdowns don’t work. Anybody who believes they do is a delusional fool.
What they do , is kick the can down the road while taking a away people’s liberty and running the economy against the wall.
After 10 weeks of lockdown combined with international border control and hotel quarantine , things were looking up in Victoria, but it was only a small window of reprieve. It turned out that while police was busy fining people for fishing or leisure driving, the hotel quarantine for incoming travelers had been mismanaged and the virus got out into the community.
One of the reasons lockdowns don’t work is that people override the rules. The police can not be everywhere and fine everybody. They would be especially reluctant to interfere in some migrant communities where aggressive behavior is common.
They claimed it was impossible to fine the BLM matter protesters, all 10 000 of them who flaunted the rules of social distancing.
Now the “authorities” believe they can contain Melbourne (just like they thought they could contain a few postcodes), but it’s only a matter of time until the virus leaks out into the surrounding countryside and a full statewide lockdown will probably follow in 2 weeks time (and that’s optimistic, it may be less than a week.)
Even if the virus does not leak it will require too many police resources to stop people from leaving Melbourne’s enormous metropolitan area.
And then what? We go for 6 weeks or possible longer as Dan Andrews is already threatening?
Why does the government not understand that we cannot have infinite lockdowns to save a few people at the expense of millions?
Lockdowns don’t work, not only because we can never rely on everybody to do the right thing, but because even when we weld people into apartments, the virus still exists somewhere in the world and will find another way in.
The only way this ends is by reasonable social distancing measures, banning mass events (with huge fines for organizers) and protecting the vulnerable while allowing the virus to spread slowly among the young Working from home and online schooling are also good options for stopping the spread.
It’s ridiculous to say that children are harmed by not attending school. Humanity survived for centuries without mandatory schooling and people still manged to learn and develop.
Children still need to socialize, but a ban on mandatory school attendance is necessary to protect vulnerable parents and grandparents. School could remain optional for those who want or need it.
The young adult population are the ones least likely to be affected by the virus. They are also the ones who are most negatively affected by lockdown and resulting job loss and isolation.
They will rebel and flaunt the rules, thereby causing the virus to burn itself out among them and creating a herd immunity scenario that will allow us all to move on.
They will be the ones to save us from ourselves because they will be forced to save themselves from politicians and their misguided and misinformed draconian measures.
