Melbourne has spent 228 days in lockdown since since March 2020.

The state is set to notch up a grim world record for the most days spent under stay-at-home laws when it passes Buenos Aires on September 23.

People have lost everything, and the past 12 months have seen unprecedented shifts.

Yet, despite spending more time in lockdown than most of the world, citizens of Melbourne are still unable to exercise their democratic right to protest.

Despite admitting there was no evidence that the last freedom protest spread any virus, Daniel Andrews turned the police against the public today and deprived them of basic services such as public transport, all in the name of ‘public safety’.

2,000 police gathered in a large group, to prevent people gathering in large groups.

Melbourne’s beating heart, the CBD and inner suburbs, became almost silent this morning — other than the sound of police and media helicopters. A Brave New World Order.

Melbourne is already in lockdown, so a ‘double lockdown’ zone applied across up to 360 square kilometres of the city. Tram, train and bus routes that transverse the CBD were shut down.

The agenda was to prevent protesters from gathering in the city.

However, this plan ultimately failed, with protesters determined to have their voices heard.

Demonstrators turned out in Melbourne to protest against lockdown measures, as they swarmed in front of traffic in Richmond, in the Victorian capital’s inner-suburbs.


If you turned on the television last night, you would hear talking heads describing how protesters were ‘angry men’ who were only ‘looking to cause mayhem’.

Police say those who attended today were not fighting for freedom, but say attendees were “angry, aggressive young males” there to fight the police.

“What we saw today was a group of protesters that came together, not to protest freedoms, but simply to take on and have a fight with the police,” Victoria Police Commander Mark Galliott said.

Selective media was broadcast to highlight violent clashes.

However, the larger timeline and story was cleverly avoided.

Were protesters really looking for a fight?

Was everything as ‘violent’ as described across the 2 hour rally?

Citizens, armed with smartphones and cameras, have become the media now.

Here is what the TV didn’t show you.



How it began..

Protesters gathered in Richmond in a peaceful manner, deciding to momentarily block traffic for a few speeches — a common technique employed by most protest movements across the world.

Protesters begin marching up the street, police arrive..

Following a few small speeches on the street, protesters began moving up the street as police began to arrive. As they did so, forces formed a line in front of them and walked ahead.

Protesters begin chanting “you serve us” at police as they walk ahead of the group. A police helicopter hovers overhead, and already, things

Surrounded with nowhere to go.

Next thing, the protesters became trapped as police formed a ring around the group. This is a successful technique that has been employed to herd campaigners in the past, particularly G20.

A father stands with his daughter on his shoulders as they become trapped.

This photo is undoubtedly heading for the history books.

Police begin aggression..

Despite media reports of ‘instigation’ and ‘violence’, it was actually the police that began the hostilities. This is confirmed by an unedited, one and a half hour livestream of the event.

In the media below, police deploy capsicum spray and attempt to subdue protesters in Richmond:

Check out that right hook..

Early ‘arrests’ are made as some protesters are violently singled out by the police force.


Despite being trapped in a ring of police, protesters did not lash out at the authorities.

Instead, they begin to sit on the ground, playing John Farnham and pleading with officers to sympathise with their demonstration. Or at least let them pass and continue the march.

How are police ‘preventing spread’ by bringing groups to a compact standstill?

In the video below, one woman pleads with line blocking the pro-democracy march: “My Dad fought in a war for freedom, and look at what you guys are doing to us.”

Police officers begin taking up more of Burnley Street in Richmond, which is now blocked on either side. As a result, the crowd is singing ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘Waltzing Matilda’.

They also continue “you serve us” chants, while remained sitting and peaceful.

Try to escape and head back home..

Once again, NOT looking to incite violence with the police, protesters head through a side unit complex to escape and attempt to head back to their cars.

Contrary to media reports, protesters claim this gate was already unlocked, not broken for access.

Police continue to stalk the group..

The authorities re-emerge quickly after being foiled by the demonstrators, who are heading back up Richmond. They are moving quickly to ensure no traps are fallen into again.

They are continuously funnelled through Richmond, before ending up on ‘that’ very small (now infamous) residential street. Note that protesters are still peaceful up to this point.

Police block protesters yet again..

However, democracy in action was again short-lived, as protesters discovered the police force had once more blocked them in from both sides when reaching the end of the street.

At this point, residents are far away from their cars and the original meeting spot.

Police FINALLY get their provocation..

After an hour and a half of diverting protesters through the city, the people eventually break through. The police finally got what THEY wanted, and that was a violent clash.

Here is an alternative angle of the now worldwide scenes:

The media say police were ‘forced’ to deploy capsicum spray, before arresting dozens of protesters.

Yet, all the protesters wanted to do at this point was go home, and all of this could have been avoided if the police — with no evidence they are spreading the virus — allowed them to do so.

Yet, this one very scene is here is ALL the media will focus on. Ignoring the larger picture.

Similar to the fake ‘man punches horse‘ or ‘officer hit with ink‘ stories from last rally.

Yes, violence did momentarily ensue — but are the protesters the only ones to condemn for this?

Why are the media NOT showing acts on the other side of the picture?


Old lady knocked down and sprayed.

As most of the protesters head up the road, shocking video and photo shows a police officer aggressively knock over an elderly woman, before hitting her in the face with capsicum spray.

What was the justification for such excessive force?

The officers involved in this incident should be investigated for their actions immediately.

Bystander knocked down

An innocent bystander, caught in the middle of police pursuit, gets knocked to the ground.

Do you think they would come back for her? No.

It was the protesters who checked on her health and well-being.

Authoritarian arrests

The media would have you believe that this scared woman is a ‘crazy, right-wing conspiracy theorist’ and a ‘public health threat’ to you and your loved ones.

Does this look like the face of someone like that? Or an ordinary mother, sister or daughter?

The police force act like thugs and paint the ones they arrest as said thugs.

After the event, Chief Commissioner Shane Patton said police would be patrolling trains to ensure commuters had legitimate reasons to disembark. They also hunted individuals in smaller groups:

Australia in 2021, folks. Tax dollars hard at work for ‘public safety’.

Slow motion tyranny..

Our friend Marty Focker was also on-the-ground for the event, and has provided additional footage that highlights police behaviour during the day. In slow motion for everyone to see.

What has this country become?

The world is watching and the media propaganda stronghold is shattering.

Share this piece with all those who need to see it.

What do you think of the media provided on this timeline?

Does this match what the TV is saying? Or are they lying to us yet again?

  1. Comprehensive report of the Melbourne freedom rally yesterday. Great to see there are still some genuine, courageous Australians living in Victoria. The Victorian and NSW police are a disgrace, and it was heartening to see several of their thugs flattened by the small crowd (after the police had provoked them) in Melbourne.

    So Brisbane had by far Australia’s biggest rally (I estimate ca 10,000) and it was exciting to be part of it. Good talks, a bit of police kerfuffle (when they arrested a bloke in the Botanic Gardens, don’t know why) and were soon surrounded by a sizeable and voluble section of the crowd. Anyway (despite the anger) it didn’t escalate and the police were later helpful during the march around the CBD. There were Kiwis present and the march started with a haka. Much noise made in the Queen St Mall! Good talks and plenty of impressive posters, including:

    “What’s the difference between a vaccine passport and the Yellow Star? 83 years”
    “Politicians, keep your pr…s away from our children”
    “Make influenza great again”
    The secret of happiness is FREEDOM. The secret of freedom is COURAGE”.

  2. No doubt will events like this be used to justify labeling the patriots of this country as domestic terrorists, much like the January 6th ‘Insurrection’ in the US that occurred earlier this year. Given the likely immediate threat of a false flag event to occur in the not too distant future to officially label patriots and free thinkers as domestic extremists. The whole point of increased anti-terror legislation across the world since 9/11 was not protect people from foreign extremists as one may think, but to be used against ordinary citizens to squash disent that was the plan from the very beginning!

  3. Unbelievable to see these uniformed thugs in action…they must be so thick in the head as they are helping to destroy the very society that they will have to live in…same with the disgraceful main stream media.

    1. My partner and friends were ambushed while in their car in traffic, for no reason. Pepper sprayed, stomped on and my partner has a heart condition and became unconscious. Required immediate medical attention. Late last night he was discharged from hospital to be interviewed. Taking all his belongings, including phone and identification to only be told they haven’t got it.

      I have footage of this.

      Would love to be able to tell our horrific story.

  4. Unfortunately, both sides of politics need the scamdemic, and need a politicised police force. The media just goes along for the ride.

    1. THE Media ARE NEVER along for THE Ride. They form The Foundation for Comprehensive Stratagem. WITHOUT THEM, Stratagies Definitively DO NOT get off the Ground, & ARE SECURED PRIOR to Stratagem Launch, AND Regulate Sustained Momentum!
      NOTHING is OFF THE TABLE, Morally, NOR ANY Level of Depravity to Gain THE END GAMBIT!
      Current CON JOB 19 is No exception! Overall Population reduction, the Internal Civil destruction of THE Individual, THE Family Unit [Including Emotional Leverages from Naive Extended or Direct Family Members [PURPOSEFUL DIRECTED STRATAGEM -FULL Media Co operation/E Print & Hard Copy Platforms – Sept 11th/2001 Should have Awoken Folks to this Tactic(Maybe Not) – Sun Tzus ‘Art of War’], And if ALL else Fails, Leverage THE Children against THE ‘Resisters or Stoic!’
      Enter my Fav Observer;
      “It is THE Press above All, which wages a Positively Fanatical & Slanderous Struggle, Tearing down Everything which can be regarded as a Support of National Independence, Cultural Elevation, & the Economical Independence of The Nation.”
      “Generally readers of The Press can be classified into three Groups; First, those that Believe Everything they Read, Second, Those who No longer believe Anything, Third, Those who Critically examine What they read and form their Judgements accordingly!”
      “It took the Press only a few days to transform some Ridiculously Trivial matter into an issue of National Importance, while Vital problems were Completely ignored or filched & hidden away from Public attention!”
      Last THE Last Social Leverage;
      “The State must declare the Child to be the Most precious Treasure of The People. As long as THE Government is perceived as working for the Benefit of the Children, the People will happily endure almost Every Curtailment of Liberty & almost Any Deprivation!”
      Thank You for those Observations – Mssr; Adolph Hitler. – WHAT’S CHANGED?

  5. The levels of violence from our police are of deep concern. Are they also being trained by the Israeli Army like American police where the ‘expertise’ on offer is subjugating men, women and children held under occupation?

    1. Correct. Men and women of (foreign) service corporations that dumb down their held hostages with their outsider ‘expertise’.

  6. Absolutely, the sign Police are Now the ENEMY, to turn against the people, in such a gutless manner, a true description of the “LOWLIFES” who join this corporate gang, !
    Everyone send this footage to the A.B.C

    1. I could not believe what I was seeing!! A group of power hungry, inconsiderate, disrespectful young thugs dressed in uniforms literally pushing men AND woman over – just because they could!!
      This is beyond disgusting – beyond appalling!!

  7. Incredible work exposing this evil and thanks to TOTT news Australia for getting this out so we can show the world what’s going on here.

  8. I am absolutely disgusted!! Totally appalled!!

    These morons in uniforms are nothing but power hungry thugs! REAL police do not act in this manner! So WHO are these thugs dressed up in uniforms?
    spraying people as if they were weeds…..pushing woman over….pushing Women.for the sake of it.!!! just because they could!!! DISGUSTING……harassing and pushing cyclists as they go for a ride…smh…omg…

    As a senior, I never thought I would live to see those who are supposed to protect and serve the public from the ‘boogyman’ – actually become the boogyman.

    They have no respect for self, law or others. They are an absolute shame!!!

  9. Please read and share this 25 page essay. I’m quite proud of this and it has been read over 1800 times in five days. And it does contain some good news: The Ivermectin Protocol could end the Plandemic, the forced vaccinations, the vaccine passports and the larger globalist agenda. But FB has so censored me, over recent months, that my essays barely get read 10% as much as they did a year ago. This is obviously happening to millions of FB writes/activists in order to shut us up as they usher in a Global Government. Last week Biden basically declared war on 80 million unvaccinated and our Bill of Rights. The time to rise up is upon us.
    The first 2 Great Globalist PsyOps of the 21st Century: 911 and the Plandemic
    How the Universal adoption of the Ivermectin Protocol will end the Plandemic

  10. Unbelievable footage and story – of course there are always two sides but the world will only ever see one. The side that the media want to propagate. Several moments spring to mind: pepper-spraying people armed with ‘deadly’ cameras? Four or five cops with batons and pepper spray jumping on one person armed with an umbrella? WTF? How are these acts even allowed? I must admit I am not supportive of these protests due to the potential for being super-spreaders (after all, half the cops had their masks half off) but the people involved have made the decision to risk their lives and health to speak out = brave!








  12. What’s going on in Australia ? Since when did we become Nazi Germany ? I’m shocked at the idiots in uniform acting like criminals against people standing up for their rights. Well guess what pigs, you don’t deserve to be called by your respected profession, you are pigs. You are a disgrace to the uniform you wear. You are acting like pigs. You are PIGS !!

  13. wow, In Australia was in many areas, the big liberal cities control the politics and the policies through votes. So it will be interesting to see how they vote going forward
