"Police had urged people to adhere to restrictions on community movement. Four men were arrested and charged with incitement over the so-called “Freedom Day” protests planned for several Melbourne locations."

"It is not safe, it is not smart, it is not lawful. In fact, it is absolutely selfish for people to be out there protesting," Andrews said.

So. It is ok to be on a crowded bus or train but illegal to walk around in the fresh air?

Utter madness...

Odd so many of these modern day 'freedom fighters' chanting 'my rights as an individual', saying 'it's government overreach' (another term used by the alt right along with 'hoax', 'witch hunt' etc.) tend to be people supporting authoritarianism. How are those 'individual rights' working out in authoritarian states?

Ignorant people protesting about being kept safe in a pandemic and ignorant posters who agree that they should be unsafe instead.

Sorry that people are a little "put out" by temporary restrictions but better that than being dead. Astounding that people would rather be dead than alive. Too many people with invincibility complexes and not enough common sense or community spirit.

Sorry that people are a little "put out" by temporary restrictions but better that than being dead.

Sorry that people are so easily frightened into giving up basic freedoms. Ironic that it's because they are afraid of a fraction of 1% chance of fatality when many have willingly gone to certain death for those same freedoms.

Sorry that people are so easily frightened into giving up basic freedoms.

Accepting temporary restrictions on freedoms to help protect others is not giving up freedoms; it’s part of the social contract.

Ironic that it's because they are afraid of a fraction of 1% chance of fatality when many have willingly gone to certain death for those same freedoms.*

It’s not the fatality rate that people need to worry about, it’s the hospitalization rate and long-term affects.

I don't know where you get your false information from but below is listed the correct statistics.

It has NEVER been a fraction of 1%. You must be thinking of the flu or common cold. This is a Pandemic.

World mortality rate 25/4/2020 was 7.3%

World mortality rate 4/9/2020 was 3.3%

Country by country the risk varies but the above are averages figures for the planet.

The police have special powers during the current state of disaster and state of emergency.

The Police were going to arrest him for incitement via face book and he would not open the door because he was resisting a lawful arrest. Of course the Police were not going to just go away. They took the necessary action to make their arrest. As it should be. Some people encourage others to break the law and they should be dealt with by the law. For people who dont like that they need to move to a country with little or no law, ie anarchy.

Unnecessary and non-sensical restrictions that set the precedent for more. It won't be temporary.

I could probably school you in that, but no reason to disturbed your cherished assumptions of "the others."

World mortality rate 25/4/2020 was 7.3% World mortality rate 4/9/2020 was 3.3%

And it will keep dropping as more are testing and figures are corrected.

They’re probably sociopaths too.

You are right. People who think for themselves and come to a conclusion other than the one you like are sociopaths. Perhaps you should lock us up. Oh, wait....

Fascist govts and police states world over are making up new laws almost daily when common sense is all that is needed.

This isn’t about politics. It’s about pubic health. The government is trying to keep people safe - even the morons like these people.

I love how the “FREEDOM!” screamers talk about rights, but never mention the other side of the coin - responsibilities. You exist in a society. You give up your perfect freedom to have the govt. protect your life, liberty and property.

When you endanger public health by not wearing a mask, you’re not keeping your end of the bargain.

This is a discussion about Australia, and people demonstrating against the draconian lockdown.

The lock down is sensible and necessary and describing it as draconian and risking a police state is BS.

If you cant make responsible credible statements you should just stick to reading what others post. Australia's chances of becoming a police state are less than our sun going nova tomorrow. A few boguns defying good sense and endangering themselves is nothing to be concerned about. The government taking action to save its citizens while people object to it is hardly the thing of police states. Seriously do you jump at your own shadow all the time? A responsible government is to be applauded.

Peter14 many believe Aussie is already well down the Police State road. Many States already ban certain types of clothing, and many forms of association . Those laws not only being applied to Outlaw Motorcylce groups now either, even though the muppets in charge assured everyone thats the original target group.

Little by little they erode the rights of law abiding citizens until you only have a Police State.

These are Trump-infected crazy times. Whatever number of thousand online entries you might point to, any number of them could have come from the trailer parks of Hicksville, Nowhere, southern USA (whose residents- suckers ... word of the day... that they are, are too dumb to know that they would be better off with the Democrats). Who knows? The majority of Melbournians still embrace sensible leadership, as demonstrated by Andrews.

Hi carpslidy,

that 'logic' is just astounding to me. You want to support your family, sure I that's fine.

Yet at the same time you are willing to expose them to a virus that has the random possibility of killing one of them, or doing permanent damage to them.

I'm sorry but it just seems bizarre to me.

1 ( +7 / -6 )

If we could resurrect a German male who lived through both the Spanish flu epidemic and Nazism in Germany and told him he had to go back in time to relive one of those times as a young man of 20, I wonder which he would choose? And bear in mind that the Spanish flu was actually killing large numbers of young people and Covid 19 isn't.

Its truly worrisome those who are so sure handing the government all this power is going to end well. And over a disease that mostly kills old people who haven't much life left anyway. As a person who can now be called old and truly in a risk category I believe you young and middle aged people need to take your freedom more seriously than your attempts to keep me getting sick, which is largely my own responsibility rather than yours anyway.

I’m sure all these anti-government protesters are more than happy to take the government financial handouts

They got their own tax money back, and I am thinking of not only income tax but sales tax, property tax and every other tax that was taken from them. Only a fool would not take it because buying power will be reduced because of the mass distribution. Taking it does not increase your position. It only maintains it. Not taking decreases your position.

it’s part of the social contract.

I never signed such a contract. Who did?

I enjoy some of your posts, but I'm genuinely puzzled about what evil long term outcome you see coming from this.

The fact that the authoritarian Andrews regime ordered the cops to arrest peaceful anti-lockdown protestors but left BLM protestors - a far larger number - unhindered says everything you need to know about it’s loyalties.

Where do you get your news from? Portland and NY run Trumps opponents, who support the rioting mobs. The "secret police" that you refer to in Portland were federal police who protect a federal building, which the rioters tried to burn down. Trump is not interfering in the Portland riots, although he did offer help, which the Portland mayor refused.

There is no comparison with the authoritarian government in Melbourne.

What am I missing?

Centuries of abuse of seemingly benign laws. The never ending tendency of government to always take every power to the next level. The never ending lies and cover ups of what governments are ACTUALLY doing. Fascism already permeating the Australian government.

Today its Covid 19. Next time it could be just a worse than usual flu used as an excuse while the REAL reason has nothing to do with that flu. Its just plain easier to round people up if most people are locked in their homes for example. Could be done for an attempt to capture the next Edward Snowden and not having citizens getting in the way. For an Aussie example of abuse please look up Annika Smethurst. Her home was raided over her reporting on government surveillance plans. Or consider what is going on at Manus Island. Evil people are real and waiting.

Another thing that can be done to abuse a seemingly benign law is just change some definition. In the Philippines they just passed an anti-terrorism law. Then they changed the definition of what terrorism is to expand it. Imagine the Australian government changing the definition of pandemic.

All the loss of rights, freedom and privileges seem benign until some evil POS takes the helm and people start going to prison camps. Consider how well Adolf Hitler could have used government cameras on every corner. By the time the evil take over the habit of complacency is set and hard to break. The pace of going downhill from there is exponential. You never want to start.

Peter14 many believe Aussie is already well down the police state road.

Funny that I live here in Australia yer nobody seems to mention us being close or getting closer to a police state. Fantasy, nothing more.

Calling for a democratic protest is "incitement"? Wow, George Orwell would love that.

Calling for an "illegal gathering" in the middle of lock down for a pandemic is not a democratic protest. It is illegal, hence his arrest. George Orwell would have been intelligent enough to understand the difference.

That its rich coming from somebody supporting lockdowns over a at worst 0.6% disease.

Australia's mortality rate is over 2.3% and since I am considered high risk for pre existing conditions your damn right I support the lock downs to get this under control. Excuse me for wanting to live rather than die young.

A responsible government doesnt bankrupt the economy, strip people of their freedoms, arrest people who oppose them, inadequatly prepare the health system, demand zero infections then cockup forced isolation

A responsible government puts saving lives ahead of saving the economy. One can be rebuilt the other is lost forever. Selfish people are everywhere putting their short term inconvenience above the lives of everyone else. No tears here for the selfish.

Thank you for honesty, this isnt about the good of society etc, its the fact you want everyone to stay home so you can be just a little safer. Yo

I hope you get well soon but I would suggest the best option for you as an individual and for your country would be the sick take extra precautions and the healthly work to fund hospitals and pension schemes.

My wife was very ill January through july, did we ask the world to stay home of course we aren't that megalomanic, instead we wore masks and took extra precautions.

Peter14 enjoy the balanced honest realistic news coming from CNN then , no wonder you have a warped view of things.

How about :-

If the Masks Work why the 2 meters ?

If the 2 meters works why the masks ?

If both work Why the Lock Downs ?

If all three work why the Vaccine ?

If the Vaccine is Safe why "no liability Clause"?

Just some questions

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

Sorry to continue but ask yourself how much a major hospital costs to run a day (millions of dollars),

and then who pays (tax payers),

how long we need to lockdown /cycle through lockdowns until a vaccine is effective (at least a year),

how much tax income will decrease (a frightening amount)

then how long that hospital can run on zero funding (not long)

Then, how many people with preexisting conditions will die.

A history lesson is applicable here. In WWII many nations had no economy left after the dust settled, yet today they have functioning economies that serve the needs of their nations well. Look at Japan as a great example of a country with practically nothing left and yet with hard work it now has an economy the envy of most of the world. Your words are false. All economies will be brought back over time. They will be a little different due to experience gained during this pandemic that's all.

Neither of us know the lady's health condition, but if she was not already ill with something else, there is a very good chance that she would not have been affected but he virus.
