The ongoing lockdowns and other restrictions imposed on residents of Australia's states of Victoria (largest city, Melbourne) and New South Wales (largest city, Sydney) continue despite just 74 coronavirus deaths this year in the entire nation of 25 million people. 

Also continuing are protests, in those areas and even in parts of the country not under lockdown. See the 27 July TJ article, "MORE LOCKDOWN UNREST DOWN UNDER."

The Telegraph reported on 21 August that the protest in Melbourne, which started peacefully, turned into the largest and most violent that took place on that Saturday, with at least seven police officers injured and more than 250 arrests.

TRENDPOST: Regardless of the extremely low number of COVID deaths in Australia, the politicians and the media keep pumping “increase COVID cases.”  

However, as Trends Journal has pointed out (see 2 February's "2 MILLION PEOPLE, 1 CASE: WESTERN AUSTRALIA LOCKDOWN LUNACY"), the restrictions still seem unnecessarily harsh to the actual seriousness of the situation. Case numbers are routinely reported without the qualifier of how many required hospitalization, the efficacy of the tests or how many cases resulted in serious illness or death. 

Indeed, unreported is that none of the rallies seem to have turned into the "super-spreader" events authorities warned they would, and the entire nation's death toll from COVID-19 is still under 1,000.

    I was at the protest. It was brutal.
    First they blocked all exits so that on one could go anywhere. Then the super independent gave the order. One cop pulled out his hand gun. A number of others opened fire with rubber bullets. When they brought out that M40 gun and dropped a few people to the ground it was all over. Poor fellow trying to shield the women in the crowd now has internal bleeding. While over 1000 police arrested the first 200 people the rest escaped. The paramedics wouldn’t even help the injured people who were sprawled out on the ground because they didn’t have their masks on.. I recon that they were only there to help the police.
    Most of the protesters were mums and dads who had lost their business and were on the verge of loosing their houses. Right now it is lock down or else. Next it is get vaccinated to stay locked down.

    (my opinion)

    I am so amused by all those who think we keep our freedoms, liberties w/o violence, peacefully

    that is so dumb.

    the history of the world is thus: he who is willing to kill WINS! PERIOD!!

    get it?

    w/o weapons and using outright viscous violence we are doomed….because they will kill us and imprison us in camps already built and harvest our un vaxed organs for the elites (since the spike protein will not allow harvesting of vaxed organs, capisce?)

    unless we fight to the death we are finished right now…..and if you believe differently you are so a naive its ridiculous.
