‘This Is Not North Korea!’ Aussies Revolt Over Vicious COVID Crackdown

Police fire rubber bullets at workers protesting vaccine mandate

Citizens in Australia’s largest cities have taken to the streets in protest of strict coronavirus lockdowns and mandatory vaccination for workers, with police Wednesday in Melbourne firing rubber bullets, stinger grenades and pepper balls on the third day of violent demonstrations.

Residents of Melbourne have been under a strict lockdown for 230 days that includes a 9 p.m. curfew. Police arrested 215 protesters throughout the day, and two officers suffered head injuries.

“I’ve grown up here my entire life in Australia, I can’t believe that I’m seeing this in my state as well,” said Australian journalist Rukshan Fernando in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

Ingraham said that for a moment, she thought she was seeing scenes from China. In only months, she said, Australia “has gone from one of the world’s freest countries to what is essentially a bio-medical police state.”

“China’s looking very rapaciously at Australia but it looked more like something at Tiananmen Square than you’d expect from Australia,” Ingraham said on her program Tuesday night.

Many Australians have posted videos on social media to document the strict enforcement of the country’s COVID policies.

One shows a police officer at a transportation station in Melbourne running from behind a man and slamming him violently to the floor.

In New South Wales, a mother, with a small child, who apparently was staging a peaceful protest on a sidewalk, is seen being hauled way by police as her child cries.

Police in Melbourne on Wednesday are seen in the two videos below firing rubber bullets at protesters. The second shows police firing at the backs of people running away:

In this video, police on Monday warn protesters to disperse “or force will be used.” The protesters, fronted by a “freedom” sign, chant in defiance “Every day, every day, every day!”


Demonstrators in Melbourne on Wednesday chanted “lest we forget” as they stood in front of a World War II monument.


Echoing an FAA order last week grounding a Fox News drone from broadcasting aerial shots of the U.S. border crisis, Sky News Australia reported Wednesday that Victoria police have applied to put a “No-Fly Order” on media aircraft to prevent them from filming future demonstrations.

On Tuesday, some 2,000 tradesmen and anti-vaccination and freedom campaigners demonstrated against a two-week shutdown of the construction industry imposed due to rising COVID cases.

One demonstrator videoed his exchange with a police officer who said he sympathized with the protests but was just doing his job.

“We’re getting paid to do this. I’m just as over this protest as you are — by protest I mean lockdown —but unfortunately, I gotta do what I gotta do. I’m not skilled to do anything else,” the officer said.

Melbourne protesters on Saturday chanted to police officers “Shame on you!”

Police uses pepper spray to subdue protesters in Melbourne on Saturday.


A tradesman took his life at a building site in Melbourne hours after the government announced a shutdown of construction sites as punishment for vaccine hesitancy among workers.

Last November, Australia boasted that its “zero COVID” policy based on “faith in science” had “almost eliminated” COVID-19. But since them, cases have risen more than 19,000%.

Earlier this month, a satricial montage of the many COVID pronouncements of the premier of the state of New South Wales, Gladys Berejiklian, was posted on Twitter.

Last week, Reuters reported New South Wales and Victoria, which comprise more than half of Australia’s 25 million people, are testing facial recognition software that enables police check whether or not people are home during COVID-19 quarantine.

AND we thought it was bad here in California. A lesson for us all to learn…..Freedom means choice.



Also, see the corrupt LAPD Gang members allowed to serve the people. See their tattoos so you are aware of who they are (you will find this info toward the end of the video listed above).

Also, for those of you who are unaware, they plan to let the GMO mosquitos they dropped in Florida, into 12 unknown counties in Cali. We have until the 30th to stop this. DARPA is also going to, or has already begun, unleash aerosoles of who knows what, but the plan is to “off” us, in the air. It is going or has begun to go in our food as well. I wish I was joking but folks, the men in military and police need some bio-identical testosterone hormone to counteract the lithium and fluoride they dump in our water. This is an all out war between good and evil. Good will win but it’s going to get pretty rough out there. You will either go into one of their “smart cities” as cattle or you will find another way. They are burning up NorCal and have burned the towns of Paradise and Clear Lake completely. They don’t want preppers or land owners (conservatives) out there.
If you are not aware of the Noahide laws, get familiar. They were signed into law beginning with Bush and every subsequent president. For followers of the LORD Jesus Christ, this means idolatry to them and calls for beheading… STAND FIRM! This life is but a vapor compared to eternal (unending, forever) life with our Creator:

Matthew 10:28 
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
