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 ?
“There is a situation ow , where MSM pundits, sleazy corporate billionaires and other assorted dregs of society are telling us we need to upend the way we do business because of one specific riot that lasted two hours as opposed to all of the other riots we have seen that in some cases they have explicitly endorsed.
The capitol riot is a single event involving a few thousand people as opposed to the BLM and Antifa riots that were all over the country for a protracted period and probably involve several hundred thousand people.
And now finally the leftists have found protesters who were shot that they won’t stand in solidarity with. What is the unifying feature?: which kind of hats they were wearing. They said MAGA instead of BLM, so their lives don’t matter to the Democratic party.. And they are called terrorists instead of protesters” Styx666
In addition to Biden’s surprise overnight wins in some states where Donald Trump was leading comfortably, he also won the popular vote of illegal immigrants and Zombie ghosts. And even if voter fraud is never proven, aproximately half of America will believe that it has occurred.
So if Joe Biden actually wins the US can look forward to coronavirus lockdowns, which will cause a great depression which can only be remedied by a war. As you were.
Meanwhile President Trump, who was declared literally Hitler, ended up being the most peaceful president since Clinton (or possibly even Carter) and presided over a booming economy. His Covid response was widely criticized as too lax , but he did give the states what they wanted in terms of financial and medical support. The jury on what is the best response to covid. is still out of course. (Even though it isn’t, Sweden won and Trump was right, you should not make the cure worse than the disease.)
Mostly, Trump ended up being demonized by the left and the media for how he spoke, not for what he did. Now he is being censored on both Facebook and Twitter, his election day broadcast was interrupted and taken off the air by a number of lamestream media stations. Apart from being incredibly disrespectful to the office of President, they really are showing their true colours now.
The media has called the election (which is not their place to do), and it did not happen when Al Gore asked for a recount in 2000.
Either Trump will prove voter fraud, which will destroy the Democrats or Joe Biden will actually take office, which increases the chances of the presidency being handed to Kamela Harris in due course. Mind you, being a puppet for the elites, all Joe Biden needs is a pulse.
The Sheeple will come to regret their stupidity.
This is how it’s done : A bunch of German protesters walking through a shopping mall without masks without being stopped because they have safety in numbers and keep moving.. However, they only have to wear masks indoors anyway and the curfew they are protesting about later in the video means that pubs have to close at 11pm. (Berlin is famous for pubs staying open all night!) Lucky bastards, I wonder what they would make of the Melbourne situation?
Shared from an unknown author :
That’s how long you’ve been voluntarily locked in your own homes.
And every time the government extends that end date you nod your head wisely and agree “it’s for our safety”.
You spent two decades calling out the corruption in the government and now you suddenly believe that they have a vested interest in keeping you all as safe as can be.
“Well it’s a pandemic” you say. Somehow that seems to mean that they’ve had a change of heart.
We went from “flatten the curve” to some sort of brutal elimination strategy and you agree that it needs to be done.
You ignore the scientific fact that a virus cannot be eliminated, it can only be managed.
You feed on the fear like it’s giving you life. You refuse to acknowledge the fact that unless you are over 80 and have a compromised immune system, it has a 99.9% survival rate.
You refuse to acknowledge the fact that in spite of EVERYTHING we are doing supposedly to protect the elderly, it is still the elderly who are dying.
You walk around with bacterial-infested face diapers over your mouth, without any proper fitting or training in how to wear them, and believe that it’s an effective safety measure. Ignoring the science that shows that they do not work. It’s the new tinfoil hat.
You discredit the thousands of medical experts, scientists and researchers standing up all over the globe to say that we’ve gotten this all wrong, and go back to believing in your government and their select group of “experts”.
You ignore the doctors in aged care facilities telling you that these people are not dying OF C0VID, but WITH C0VID.
You ignore the elderly people telling you that they feel like they have been abandoned and left to rot and have nothing to live for, and keep telling yourselves that you’re “keeping them safe”.
In fact, if they dare to go out in the streets and protest to be free, you label them “crazy old bats”. “Somebody come get their grandpa, he escaped the nursing home.”
You laugh when it’s pointed out that we are turning into a police state and a dictatorship, while you watch Daniel Andrews and Victoria Police openly abusing the extended powers they have been granted and nod your heads again – “good on you for keeping us safe from the DANGEROUS CRIMINALS”.
Never mind that actual convicted criminals are being released onto our streets and having their prison sentences reduced.
No, you must be kept safe from those dangerous people who just want to take their dog for a walk and breathe in fresh air.
The data is freely available and yet you don’t have a problem with the fact that you don’t talk about the daily recovery rates, you don’t talk about the daily negative test rates.
You don’t want to hear about the flawed models, the fraudulent data, the empty hospitals, the inflated numbers, the inefficacy of the tests, the mislabelling of deaths, the medical malpractice, the underlying health conditions, the co-morbidities, the case-fatality ratios, the gag orders, the financial incentives, the problematic treatment protocol, the hundreds of variables that have contributed to the numbers held up in this “pandemic”.
Not even if it’s an epidemiologist, a structural biologist, a professor of medicine, an Italian Parliamentarian, who’s talking about it. Are members of Yale, Oxford, Stanford and Carnegie-Melon, some of the world’s most renowned universities, simply producing “junk” science from “nut-job” scientists and researchers?
You want it to be “scientific” but don’t have an issue with the fact that in NO country has there been a valid control group to extrapolate the data for the relevant population as far as these lockdowns and restrictions and their efficacy goes.
In fact, you ignore the scientists telling you they don’t believe it has had any effect.
You ignore the surgeons with decades of experience and experts in peer reviewing scientific studies who point out the holes in the “new research” that has quickly been done to demonstrate the need
for masks. Even when experts tell you that it is not credible, you still repeat “ScIenCe”.
You say “trust the experts”, but “not THAT doctor, not THAT epidemiologist, not THAT expert. It has to be science. But not THAT science”. And frankly, this narrative is getting old.
You don’t know about the investigations that they’ve done into the deaths in Italy, in the US, and you don’t even want to.
You don’t want to know about the number of people who have died because they were refused medical care for their primary issue, while they were tested or treated for C0VID.
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death worldwide, but there’s not even a possibility that any of these deaths have anything to do with that. Oh no, it’s ALL the C0VID virus.
You threaten those suggesting the fear is overplayed, with being hospitalised and put on a ventilator, ignoring the fact that ventilation is playing a huge role in people dying from COVID, and that they have no intention of going to a hospital if they get sick.
90% of ventilated patients die, but if you know how to treat your immune system you have a much better chance to fight off a virus.
You won’t even consider treatment protocols as a factor. You won’t even consider natural health and methods of boosting and strengthening your immune system.
You trust in immune suppression and call it “healthcare”.
You believe those who tout models that have turned out be imbecilic, but dismiss the testimonies of those who have nothing to gain by coming forward.
You refuse to follow the money. You refuse to look even a fraction deeper beyond the daily news and government press conferences on your television.
You refuse to do anything but repeat the mantras that you’ve been taught.
You don’t want to hear about the people breaking down because they’re being kept from their family members in their final hours. The people who can’t even say goodbye, are not allowed to bury them.
You call people losing their businesses, their livelihoods, everything they have worked their entire life for, even their friends to suicide, “childish” people throwing a “tantrum” that they can’t “go drink at the pub”.
You don’t even have the time to listen to what they’re actually trying to say because you’re too busy filling your head with media panic and ignoring the facts.
While people are literally taking their own lives as a result of the C0VID panic that has been instilled in them.
You just plan to sit at home, forever if need be, until a magic vaccine is found to shoot the virus you’ve been avoiding this whole time straight into your veins.
While the economy crashes down around you, while thousands lose everything, even their lives, labelled some sort of “sacrifice” for “the greater good”.
The greater good being sacrificing the lives and health of the many, for the sake of the few who are DYING ANYWAY in spite of every measure that has been taken.
While you repeat “It’s for our safety, it’s for our safety, it’s for our safety” like mindless individuals who have lost the ability to think for themselves.
You don’t want to hear about facts. You want to hear about fear.
And you say that WE’RE the conspiracy theorists” – Author Unknown
The ABS consistently forecast wage growth, blissfully unaware of the effects of illegal immigration driving down wages an conditions. A more cynical mind might assume they were promising paradise while mixing the cyanide into the cool aid. Not sure where this chart was from, but its based on ABS data.
So what happened after 2007 you might ask…
Immigration jumped to more than double, almost triple the previous 30 years average rate.OF course this was coupled with illegal work permits and other rorting of the Australian taxpayer.
20% of the workforce are migrant guest workers
10% of the work force are migrant guest workers are in breach of their visa.

Worst of all this problem has been well publicized and nothing has been done, because government officials are complicit in the scam. All of this feed corporate profits by reducing wages and driving up bank profits by creating demand for housing.
Another good artile about this and with specific reference to the IT 457 visa rorting:
After watching the video of Zoe Buhler’s arrest I have to sincerely thank VicPol for doing what no protest could ever accomplish:
By arresting and cuffing a pregnant mother in her pjs for making a post (about organizing a protest) on Facebook, they have shown the rest of Australia and the world, what is really going on in the people’s republic of Victoria: It’s a dictatorship and a police state.
The optics betray the true situation, in which Zoe was only cuffed briefly and not shipped off to the Gulag. But it looks bad, so bad.
By livestreaming this video, she singlehandely beat the government and the media at their own game.
We will spend years, nay, decades trying to come to terms with the fact that we allowed our freedoms to slip away like this and much will be written. But yesterday was the day it all turned around.
Arrested while pregnant in front of her 2 kids in her own home…for a Facebook post. welcome to 1984.
