WATCH: Australian Protesters Clash With Police Over Strict Lockdown Orders


Countless Australians took to the streets of Sydney, Melbourne, and other cities over the weekend in defiance of the government’s draconian lockdown orders mandating over 80% of the entire population to remain in their homes.

At least 300 people were arrested for violating the prohibition on COVID protests.

“Australia’s police arrested 235 people in Melbourne and 32 in Sydney on Saturday at unsanctioned anti-lockdown rallies and several police officers were injured in clashes with protesters,” reports Reuters.

“About 700 people managed to gather in parts of Melbourne, as 2,000 officers made the city centre virtually a no-go zone, setting up checkpoints and barricades. Public transport and ride shares into the city were suspended,” adds the global news agency.

“To anybody planning to breach public health orders and attend an illegal mass gathering this weekend, our message is clear: Don’t do it,” said an official from New South Wales (NSW) in August.

“We are not opposed to free speech. We are absolutely opposed to a protest that potentially jeopardizes the freedom of the vast majority of the community that continue to do the right thing,” added a member of the New South Wales Police Force. “We are absolutely opposed to a protest that allows people to gather and in doing so has the potential to risk the health and safety of the majority of the community.”

    Marbkecreekmonarch b4 makimg assumptions perhaps get your facts right. Firstly people did protest against the new gun laws, even though all guns should be legal they banned semi auto rifles but we still have acces to allot of guns in Australia but a gun license is required which noone really agrees with.
    Secondly as mentioned above under 30% of the guns were handed back when the bans were applied and most of all hem were from people who needed the money as it was a gun buy back.
    3dly over the weekend in the morning herald it was reported that there is a higher volume of guns in Australia currently than prior to the port Arthur massacre aka the port Arthur government operation which was what led to the gun ban.
    And lastly if you actually do a little research you will find that over the last 12 months numerous full auto rifles have been sized by the Australiam gov there is a videobonline of the cops shooting one showing its accuracy and power during the anon app raids.
    Plenty of guns in Australia, Aussies just don’t want it to get to the point where we have to fight the gov in that manner.

    Don’t forget one minute think think that having a shitcoins of guns will stop your government from doing what they want to you they will just make it look like your a white supremacist or a terrorist or what ever else they want to make up, yeah you can fight back but that’s if you get a chance it’s quite common for the gov to infiltrate and get close to the people or groups they want to get rid of.

    Wake up champ

      If I remember correctly, the Lefty media in the USA pushed the fact that most, if not all, Aussies turned in all their guns. And they showed all kind of vids portraying that. And your right about the government lying to get what they want. Because they could give two shits about you.

    For all those concerned about the fact that Australians have been disarmed. Only 30% of the firearms were turned in for destruction. It would be safe to assume that our Aussie brethren are digging up their weapons and waiting. These people do love freedom, and if camps are next, I am sure they will resist with what ever is necessary.

    Maybe they should’ve protested harder about being largely disarmed with a fraction of this effort. It stands to reason that had they remained an armed and sovereign citizenry that they wouldn’t be at such a situation of overreaching from their overlords today…
