25.07.21.  Message to all politicians:
‘You have made a rod for your own back’!
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and police have lashed protesters at a violent rally in Sydney, as thousands stormed streets in Melbourne and Brisbane. Protests have turned violent as thousands of anti-lockdown protesters take to the streets in Sydney CBD. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has said she is “utterly disgusted” by the illegal protestors who stormed the streets of Sydney on Saturday, whose “selfish actions have compromised the safety of all of us”.

Arrests at violent Sydney lockdown Freedom Day rally as Victorians, Queenslanders march

“The protestors have shown utter contempt for their fellow citizens who are currently doing it tough,” she said.
“I want to thank the brave Police officers who put their own safety on the line to ensure the protest action ceased.
“This type of activity during lockdown will not be tolerated and the full force of the law will be brought against anyone who engages in this type of illegal activity.”
NSW Police Minister David Elliott also echoed her sentimants, lashing the anti-lockdown protesters “selfish boofheads” and vowed to prosecute them all in a furious press conference hours after dramatic scenes erupted.
The protesters have marched shoulder-to-shoulder through the streets despite NSW recording its highest number of daily infections since the Covid-19 outbreak started.
NSW Police said Saturday’s protest was “a breach of Covid-19 health orders”. A total of 57 had been arrested so far and 90 infringements notices were handed out. But these numbers are expected to climb.
Police said 22 detectives are being dedicated to find protesters and have called for anyone with footage to send it in.
“What we saw today were 3500 very selfish boofheads,” Mr Elliott said. “People who thought the law did not apply to them.”
Mr Elliott has also called on everyone at the protests to get tested for Covid and announced the formation of a police strike force to identify and track down each of the estimated 3,500 protesters.
Police also alleged that officers were assaulted.
“I’m hoping we issue 3,500 infringement notices, I’m hoping we have people before the courts,” Mr Elliott said.
“If you don’t want to be in lockdown, obey the rules.”
Shock photos from the protest emerged showing the brazen protesters huddled together as they walked through Broadway in Sydney’s innerwest to nearby Victoria Park chanting, holding signs and halting traffic.
Others showed the massive police operation enacted after a massive crowd hit the CBD near Town Hall.
“The NSW Police Force recognises and supports the rights of individuals and groups to exercise their rights of free speech and peaceful assembly, however, today’s protest is in breach of the current COVID-19 Public Health Orders,” it read.
St James and Museum railway stations were forced to close due to the protests.
“Trains continue to operate and for those at the northern end, access is via Wynyard and Circular Quay Railway Stations,” a NSW Police spokesman said.
“For those at the southern end, access will be via Central and Redfern with limited access at Town Hall Railway Station.”
The Tik Tok comedian who shot to fame when he accurately predicted NSW case numbers five days in a row was also spotted at the protest.
Jon-Bernard Kairouz addressed a crowd of thousands who gathered on Saturday in defiance of public health orders designed to slow down the city’s growing outbreak.
The 26-year-old dubbed himself “the people’s premier” as he spoke to a cheering sea of people waving Australian flags and holding signs decrying masks and vaccines.
“I must say I’ve crunched the numbers, I don’t think the cases are going to go up tomorrow,” he said.
“But from what I’ve calculated there’s over 50,000 people here today.”
“This is f..king ridiculous,” one person wrote. “If your aim is freedom — you’ve f..ked up by bringing thousands of people together. Watch the spike. Congrats!”
MELBOURNE PROTESTERS STORM STREETS
In Melbourne, police made arrests before the protest even took place with officers arresting multiple people for not wearing a mask and failing to show their ID.
Protesters gathered about 12pm at Flinders Street Station, before walking up Swanston Street towards Parliament House.
About 5000 people took to the streets, chanting, waving flags and halting trams and traffic.
Earlier on Saturday NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard described the move to protest as “silly”.
“We live in a democracy and I am certainly one who supports people’s right to protest, but I actually think it is really silly,” he said.
“At present we’ve got cases through the roof and we have people thinking it’s okay to get out there and possibly be close to each other.”
Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley said he was “beyond disappointed” at the protests and urged people to rethink their motives to protest amid a global pandemic.
“Please be on the side of humanity, not the side of the virus,” he said.
QUEENSLAND PROTESTS GET HEATED
Queenslanders are not in lockdown but that did not stop thousands turning out to join a lockdown rally in Brisbane.
Many who are anti-mask and anti-vaccination supporters turned out with placards, angry about current restrictions across the country.
Police estimated the crowd at around 7500 people but it is understood that up to 10,000 were present at times.
The protest included an assembly at the Botanical Gardens and a short march through the CBD.
Attendees have been seen carrying signs that read “my body my choice” and “experimental vaccines Australia says no.”
Families brought young children and dogs to the gathering where they listen to speeches.
Protests have been organised across the country in protest of the lockdown in Sydney and Melbourne.
The crowd booed chief health Dr Jeannette Young as a speaker discussed a letter he planned to send to her and the Premier.
One speaker named Max said the pandemic had become “an IQ test” as “people can’t see what’s going on here.”
He said lockdown was “worse than being in a prison.”
Protesters against masks and lockdowns hit the streets of Brisbane.
“Sydney is a prison at the moment, they’re not allowed to leave their suburb to even go to work.”
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said there had been no arrests but officers would review footage to ensure no laws had been broken.
“QPS recognise and support the right to peaceful assembly and protest,” she said.
“Under current restrictions, persons outdoors are not required to wear or carry a mask as long as physical distancing is maintained.
“We will be reviewing all available footage of today’s events to determine if any clear breaches have occurred and consider initiating enforcement actions if required.”

    Well the pushback has begun… it was inevitable ,poor judgement by officialdom alround has caused this.Where will it end is the biggest question.
    The governments have lost control and a big change in direction is the only answer. Jackboot control attempts will only worsen the situation.
    Stay safe folks.

  • GTD 25/07/2021, 5:58 am

    Seemed like the crowd was pretty peaceful until word from up high told the NSW cops to start arresting.. IMO.
    People have had enough.
    The 🐷 headed powers that be should also start to use alternative therapeutics like Ivermectin and HCQ in conjunction with zinc vitamin D and ethromyocin ..
    How ridiculous that the overpaid unelected lisping hospital administrator in QLD fines any doctor $5,000 for even prescribing HCQ..

    Could this be the beginning of the end for our tyrants, both elected and unelected?

  • Bob Ford 25/07/2021, 6:35 am

    Here is a real opportunity for ‘the elected ‘, to save face , sit down and talk and to save democracy !

    Full support to protesters in the face of dictatorial contrived State Govt edicts, police forces that operationally have adopted a role as thugs. Evidence of Covid as a non-existent pandemic is absolute, evidence of collusion and fraud by alphabet organisations is revealed of the scam. I’m 71 years old, were I not so far away, now agitated enough with this rubbish, would join the protest. Conversation with others in my age group reveals of the same position. It’s the outcome of irresponsible brandishing of “citizens don’t matter” behind the farce of this is about your health and we are all in this together.

  • Jim 25/07/2021, 7:20 am

    Police Minister David Elliott called them ‘selfish boofheads’. Looking closely at the majority of the idiots involved, I would replace the ‘boof’ with ‘rag’.

    • Lorraine 25/07/2021, 9:58 am

      did Police Minister David Elliott consider they are voters, how dare he deem them as Boofheads. 3500 he said ,,,,,,,,more like 20,000 reported ,,,,he has lowlifed that many people,,,,The Governments in all States have got to realize we wish to take care of our own health…..build roads coal fired power station, dams,,,,,leave our health to us, we have flu, cancer and all other uglies to fight with the help of Doctors and medicare….get out of our way

      • Pensioner Pete 25/07/2021, 10:34 am

        Good onya Lorraine, you are right on the money.

  • Aktosplatz 25/07/2021, 7:51 am

    I saw some of the signs that complained about small businesses being shut down.

    And these people are ‘boofheads?’

  • Ian 25/07/2021, 7:58 am

    The governments had two options.
    One. As they did, cause a confrontation and cause a split in the population. You are either for them or against them now. The middle ground has gone.

    Two. Do not attend the rally. Let it proceed. Let the masses vent their anger and let them march. The middle ground remains and people will not be hard locked to one side or the other. With reasoned argument you could discuss the claims of the protestors. with the protestors, and the two sides could agree to common ground and if conditions persist, could work to resolve the differences.

    Once you start on plan one, there is very little chance of going back. This is not going to end well.

    Who would of thought someone with an Armenian heritage would push for
    a totalitarian state – goodbye Glad!

      Klinger is only there because it’s female and LINO and currently of use to Photios. A position that can be regarded as temporary thankfully.

  • luk1955 25/07/2021, 8:04 am

    I want to thank all those brave and courageous souls who demonstrated that real people really do have a soul, and these people are fighting to preserve our humanity and fight the evilness of the state dictators, all of whom swear allegiance to Hitler and Stalin, and other foreign powers like the loathsome UN and its agenda 30 extermination of humanity program.
    Don’t pay those fines. Take them to court, overwhelm the industrialized court system that is run by companies participating in the human extermination program. No crimes have been committed. At least those hundreds of thousands of our soldiers who died fighting the forces our premiers now pledge allegiance to will have died for something, like a little breath of freedom.
    The premiers are not the problem. It is the vast majority of the sheeple who are shit scared to take a breath now without a face nappy that are the problem.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 25/07/2021, 8:24 am

    The police have made a rod for their own backs for who will ever step in to help one in the future after these demonstrations of thuggery by them?

  • Mark 25/07/2021, 8:43 am

    What did the idiots in the government expect? There’s alot of angry people with alot of time on their hands

  • JD 25/07/2021, 8:59 am

    This is not a public health order.
    This is a control order by the patsies in government led by the deep state.
    There is no need to pretend that the police are there to enforce any law which is unconstitutional and in denial of basic rights.
    The wool has been pulled too firmly over the eyes of the unseeing.

  • Rubyred 25/07/2021, 9:34 am

    I have been listening to ABC Newsradio on FM96.7o and the announcers there are hysterical in promoting the COVID “vaccine” and the pandemic. They rave on for ages at our expense. I usually just go to another sensible station 2sm where they allow their listeners to talkback radio to say whatever their ideas are. As for the media they are also non stop promoting the same and they are making matters worse. It is no wonder thinking people are now marching in the streets – a change from the left wing protests which are all about getting the Labor Party elected..

  • Aktosplatz 25/07/2021, 11:57 am

    Borders opening and then closing at the drop of a hat; people barred from seeing their loved ones, even at the point of death, hospital cases being turned away because the sick were not from the same State.

    And yet – if you are a movie star- or a sports team – it’s all waived, no problems. Come In Come In, we’ll take your money.

    What is this?

    With such a public display of Double Standards, what do the Governments and Police expect? Really??

  • Philippe Armstrong 25/07/2021, 2:53 pm

    The next protests need to be tenfold bigger. Government and medical officers, your gig is up. Your corruption and your dystopia you are creating is going to lead to a reckoning and is not going to end well for tyrants and Stasi officers. The government is calling on Karens everyday to dob in people who are defending freedoms. Nearly 19 months of this Covid scamdemic, if people haven’t woken by now, and seen what is happening around them, then quite frankly they will always be sleepers and loyal to their government masters.
