Hundreds of Thousands Demonstrate For Freedom from Tyrannical Government Outside Parliament House in Canberra, Australia

Demonstrators, who have been in Canberra over a week, want an immediate end to Covid restrictions. Protesters gathered at Parliament House in the Australian capital, Canberra on Saturday, demanding an end to coronavirus measures. The demonstrators, who arrived by truck, car, and bus over the last week, had camped at a nearby festival ground.

Video footage of the demonstration showed crowds of people streaming into the city and assembling outside parliament. 7News reporter Jennifer Bechwati described the gathering as “one of the biggest protests I’ve ever seen.”

Once outside the Australian legislature, the crowd chanted “sack them all,” referring to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the state premiers responsible for implementing some of the world’s toughest pandemic-related restrictions. In Victoria, for example, face masks and proof of vaccination are required in most indoor settings and employees in most sectors are required to be vaccinated to work.

At least three people were arrested on Saturday, with one detained for driving his truck through a roadblock. Police said the crowd of around 10,000 was “generally well behaved.”

Livestreams of the event struggled to broadcast online with many displaying ‘no signal’ messages on YouTube and Facebook.

Anyone who does not have a booking with EPIC, or are not employees, will be required to leave the area before Sunday or risk being accused of trespassing.

Organisers last weekend put out a call to come back today in bigger numbers, while the mainstream media in Australia continues to refuse to cover their cause.
