Salt of the earth Australians are rising up en masse against their criminal government.
Anti-lockdown protests have become more common in Australia since the latest round of “snap” lockdowns began two months ago.
Initially, those lockdowns were supposed to last a week. But months later, with tensions running high, millions of Australians are fed up with the government’s lockdowns and vaccine requirements.
And although Aussie health authorities have at the very least acknowledged that their “COVIDZero” approach isn’t actually feasible, frustrations among the Australian people are running high (perhaps intensified by the country’s latest diplomatic faux pas, which angered France and made PM Scott Morrison look like he stabbed President Macron in the back).
On Tuesday in Melbourne, authorities were forced to confront this blazing public anger as protesters executed an “extremely dangerous maneuver” by marching onto a busy freeway and blocking traffic in a tactic that some Americans might remember from last summer’s BLM protests inspired by the killing of George Floyd.
Right now in Melbourne, Australia the most severe clash to date between workers and the state over mandated jabs as thousands of unionized construction tradesmen take the streets.

Thousands converged on the city for a second consecutive day on Tuesday, with shocking footage capturing dozens moving onto the West Gate Freeway into the path of cars. Traffic on the freeway, which is the busiest stretch of highway in Australia, was forced to a standstill in both directions as police tried to disperse the crowd.
Footage circulating on social media showed protesters tossing glass bottles and flares toward police, while some approached officers with their hands up, chanting “you serve us”. One was heard shouting “this is our bridge”.

The police responded by deploying tear gas and firing off rubber bullets. They were filmed telling protesters to move on via loudspeakers around the area. In response, a huge chorus of men could be heard shouting, “everyday” in response, implying they would show up every day until their demands were met.
“F*ck the Jab!” God Bless Australia!

Organizers of the event, who mostly relied on the messaging app Telegram, said the “Victorian Workers Rally For Freedom” said the rallies would continue until victory had been won.

Protesters didn’t even flinch in the face of police’s threats:

Citizen: Why are you doing this?
Cop: I agree with you. I’m just doing my job…I’m just as over this lockdown as you are mate, but this is my job. I’m not skilled to do anything else.

Regime media is trying to shut down the protests by labeling those involved as “right-wing extremists and neo-nazis” (are you noticing a pattern?).
Protesters were seen overrunning a police barricade last week:

Cops responded by macing a “70-year-old lady” while she was on the ground:
