Massive Protest Today in Melbourne Australia Against Proposed COVID Laws and Opposition to Mandates
A massive protest is currently underway in the streets of Melbourne Australia (State of Victoria), where it is currently Saturday morning. Thousands of people are protesting the efforts of the Victoria government to codify COVID regulations into permanent law making the outrageous lockdown rules a permanent part of the toolbox for oppressive government control.
The State of Victoria, Melbourne area, led by Premier Daniel Andrews has been the epicenter of some of the most brutal police action against protestors. However, due to the scale of the crowds, it appears the police are no longer going to attempt to beat them into submission again or use rubber bullets.
It appears the international spotlight, provided by alternative media breaking through the control of the government media, has led to shame upon the political establishment. The police no longer seem willing to participate in the government efforts to stop voices of opposition.
“Police are aware of protest activity planned in Melbourne on Saturday. There will be a highly visible police presence to ensure there are no breaches of the peace and the community is safe,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
Protesters carried signs including ‘kill the bill’ as they also called on Premier Daniel Andrews to resign.
