Australia: Tens Of Thousands Marching For Freedom Fill The Streets In Major Cities

Fact checked
Melbourne Australia protests

Massive numbers of people took to the streets of Australian cities on Saturday, demanding an end to the “tyranny” and “oppression” of covid lockdowns, vaccine mandates and the proposed expansion of the government’s pandemic powers.

Despite the huge numbers no violence was reported from any of the events.

RT reports: In Melbourne, Sky News reporter Sophie Elsworth described “tens of thousands of people streaming through the streets” The march came after a week of smaller protests aimed at Victoria Premier Dan Andrews’ controversial pandemic bill, which if approved by the state’s legislature would allow Andrews and Health Minister Martin Foley to declare an indefinite state of emergency and issue public health orders by decree – including “any order… that the minister believes is reasonably necessary to protect public health.”

Should the bill pass, it would allow Andrews to target certain classes of people with these orders, categorizing them by age, occupation, or vaccination status. Fines for noncompliance would range from up to AU$21,800 for people and AU$109,000 for businesses.

Alternative media sources claimed that more than 100,000 people showed up to protest. However, the demonstration remained free of the violent clashes seen at protests in Melbourne in recent months.

“Australia has been willing to send troops to all parts of the world to help people become free,” one military veteran told a crowd of listeners during the protest. “To now be fighting oppression here in our own country, it’s saddening.”

Huge numbers of protesters also turned out in Sydney, and although more than 600 police officers were deployed to watch over the gathering, no arrests were made, 9News reported.

Holding signs decrying state “tyranny,” the demonstrators chanted “freedom” and called for the firing of state politicians who have implemented a two-tier system where the unvaccinated are denied many of the privileges extended to the fully jabbed.

Similarly massive gatherings took place in Adelaide, Brisbane, and Perth, with no notable incidents of violence or police action. Further afield, protests are taking place in more than 120 cities around the world this weekend, in a loosely coordinated event dubbed the ‘Worldwide Rally For Freedom’ by activists.


  1. And while the media are all looking at the vax the aussie government is meeting to introduce freedom of religion laws that no one’s reporting on That’s the real deal and you must know what religion they’re giving freedom too There’s only one that hasn’t already got freedoms here.

    • And the religion laws are a sure thing but the integrity of government laws are looking unlikely to have time now to be passed

    • Billions. But people are scared Basically it’s the reign of terror again. Police state powers and Secrecy and neo nazi ism style activities It’s all repulsive hypocrisy of any real free open democracy.

  2. over 1 million people protested in the cities…
    400,000+ in Melbourne… thousands of people were still turning up 2 hours after the event started because all the car parks and public transport in the city couldn’t handle the volume

    • I doubt it Aussies are spineless They’re best at sneaking about in the dark and doung back door deals and all that sort of stuff.

  3. … all these people to indicate that what the govt is doing is wrong and yet the govt will tell them all to go and pound sand… it is peaceful until that day that it isn’t and that day approaches, God Speed to all you Ozzies, take your country back I say…

  4. Good. Now they need to organize armed militias. Hopefully they can remove the parasite puppets in their government without violence.
