Silenced!! ‘It’s fear-mongering’: Pregnant woman arrested over anti-lockdown FB post speaks out
Im glad she is ok and can say everyone is quite nice.
Its worth mentioning she did not resist arrest.
Its sad the world has come to this.
Victoria is finished. This is ridiculous.
Protests Australia wide today
Unmasked protesters have clashed with riot police at an anti-lockdown rally in Melbourne, while other Freedom Day gatherings have also been held across Australia.
Protesters targeted landmarks across Melbourne, resulting in 15 people being arrested and more than 150 infringement notices issued for breaching the chief health officer’s directions.
One police officer was also injured, suffering cuts to the head after allegedly being assaulted by a protester.
Police in helicopters circled overhead, while officers on horses also worked to disperse crowds.
“Despite all the warnings, it was disappointing to see individuals turn out to protest in the city today, putting the lives of Victorians at risk,” police said in a statement.
“Our investigations into this protest will continue and we expect to issue further fines once the identity of individuals has been confirmed.”
Melbourne police turn out with riot teams and helicopters to quell free speech from people protesting COVID martial law!
