UPDATE — 05/09/20: You can now see on-the-ground coverage from national events this weekend by clicking here.
Following thousands rallying against lockdown restrictions in May, a new Freedom Day event has been scheduled for this Saturday by organisers who say it is time to end the COVID-19 dystopia.
Police have slammed supporters, who have labelled the coronavirus pandemic a scam and are confident the planned protest poses no threat to the greater public.
The demonstrations are in solidarity with other international events. German police attempted to halt a Berlin march by thousands of people opposed to coronavirus restrictions in the biggest of several European protests on Saturday against virus curbs and masks to halt the pandemic.
“The world has had enough and Australia is no different. People aren’t buying into the fake #CoronaHoax any more. But it’s the constant power grabbing and oppression by our government that’s hurting the most. Australia is about to take a stand,” General Maddox said.
The following events have been created by various community action groups across Australia in response to continued COVID-19 restrictions:

Although this will be a national event, all eyes are on Melbourne, who have just been announced to remain under a state of emergency for another six months.
Protesters who plan to rally in Melbourne’s CBD over tough coronavirus restrictions have been labelled “utterly selfish” by police, who have charged alleged organisers of the event.
Police in Victoria have charged two men over the ‘coordination and encouragement’ of an anti-lockdown protest to be held in Melbourne.
Ahead of the rally, Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius urged people to not attend and blasted those who plan to, calling them “boofheads” and “the tinfoil hat wearing brigade”.
“This behaviour is so selfish.
It’s batsh*t crazy nonsense.”
Fanos Panayides was identified as one of the two men arrested on Tuesday on incitement charges over Saturday’s planned rally.
“There is going to be no other day after the 5th,” Panayides said.
“Stand up and be there. They ruined our businesses. They’ve treated us like animals. They’re kicking in doors without warrants and taking people away.”
Victoria Police say they are monitoring the protest and will hand out fines to anyone who attends.
As always, TOTT News will be reporting on any ongoing developments.
