Anti-lockdown protesters have marched in major Australian cities, calling for an end to ongoing restrictions, media deception, and anti-democratic government control.

Powerful scenes show crowds stretching as far as the eye can see, with an estimated 40,000 people turning out in Sydney and Melbourne alone for peaceful rallies.

Tens of thousands of people marched through central business districts this afternoon, as part of ‘worldwide march for freedom’ events that are currently sweeping the world.

You can find compiled footage from the rallies, including a multiple-state Livestream, all below.

SYDNEY COVERAGE


In the heart of lockdown, Sydney, thousands took to the streets today. People in Greater Sydney and its surroundings have been living in lockdown for exactly four weeks (now entering fifth).

A crowd stretching as far as the eye can see moved through the CBD towards Town Hall amid a massive police presence — estimates suggest as many as 15,000 people taking part in the march.

Footage on social media shows the demonstrators walking down Broadway, one of the main arteries through Sydney’s inner-west, as part of the worldwide rallies.

Entire families can be seen among the crowd and few people are wearing face masks, making their voices heard against lockdown madnessvaccine coercionloss of livelihoods, and more.

Protesters marched to Town Hall, where many stayed to have their voices heard:

There were reports of police isolating protesters in small groups and arresting them, both before and after the larger rallies, however, everything remained largely peaceful.

These rallies follow community demonstrations in Sydney’s southwest earlier this week, in which two citizens were arrested for taking their voices to the streets.

They were protesting an ongoing “police compliance operation”, which is choking the local regions placed in lockdown, many of which were already struggling before the restrictions.

NSW Police say the march is unauthorized due to public health orders and many on social media are not happy about the mass gathering.

Speaking at a press conference today the NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard called the protests “silly” given the rising number of Covid cases in NSW.

“We live in a democracy and normally I am certainly one who supports people’s right to protest, but I actually think it is really silly,” he said.

A bit ‘silly’? Sounds like you’re really concerned about a ‘virus’, Mr. New World Order.

Sydney was not alone in their efforts.

MELBOURNE

In Melbourne, thousands of protesters turned out in the central business district chanting “freedom”.

Initially, the crowd was blocked by a police barrier when gathering in the CBD

However, shortly after, protesters broke through the barricades due to sheer numbers in the area and began marching down the street towards Parliament House.

Protesters held banners, including one that read: “This is not about a virus it’s about total government control of the people.”
