‘We built this city!’: Pro-choice tradies bring Melbourne to a standstill
After dramatic scenes yesterday in the heart of Melbourne after the CFMEU turned its back on members of the union, protesters stuck to their claims of returning once again today.
Following the shutdown of construction industry for two weeks, a larger crowd descended upon the city, marching up and down for hours before taking their message to a busy highway.
TOTT provides readers with the full timeline of events below:
10am – Gathering
Demonstrators began gathering early once again in the same location as yesterday.
They begin chanting “freedom” and “f**k Dan Andrews”, as the crowd slowly grows:
At the same time, police form a line at CFMEU headquarters again to block the protesters.
They were in the area early to avoid scenes like those witnessed yesterday:
Police issue warnings to protesters..
Neo-Nazis? Or Propaganda?
The media would have you believe the crowd is entirely made up of ‘right-wing, neo-Nazi extremists’. Setka and the mainstream presstitutes continued to drive this narrative home today.
While crowds were gathering this morning, Bill Shorten appeared on TV to spill a bunch of unfounded claims, calling the group “man-baby Nazis” and “rent-a-crowd” protesters:
Is Bill Shorten reading a script?
Either way, the dinosaur media desperately tried to run with these claims. However, a quick look at the crowd on the day dispels this myth perpetrated by the establishment:
Sheik Indians, kiwis, islanders – sounds like the type of people heavily involved in neo-Nazi activities.
Police fire on crowd to disperse..
Police begin firing tear gas at protesters, as crowd grow near CFMEU.
Some in the crowd put their hands up, chanting “don’t shoot”.
The media are still reporting the crowd as ‘a few hundred people’ at this point on TV.
Marching through the city..
The large group (much bigger than yesterday) began marching through the city son after, chanting and singing, as they begin heading down to Parliament House:
A sea of Hi Vis uniforms take over the streets.
Any respect left for the media has vanished..
Speaking of the media, as the crowd began to march, Channel 7 reporter Paul Dowsley was hit in the back by a can thrown by a hooligan. Trust in the media will never return at this point:
We also haven’t seen any evidence to suggest throat grabbing and urine tipping actually occurred.
Crowd reach their destination..
The large crowd reaches Parliament House after a short walk, where more riot police are waiting for the crowd on the steps of the building. A standoff occurs, with protesters chanting “every day”.
From here, the crowd return back in the direction of Flinders St Station, walking up and down the street for about half an hour before returning back to the CFMEU headquarters.
Once again, police are waiting for the crowd, so they decide to take a different approach.
Begin march to highway, scaring off police..
Construction workers protesting mandatory vaccines and medical coercion continuously move to avoid police lines, getting closer to the Melbourne freeway:
Crowd floods highway, shutting down traffic..
The group reaches their new destination, taking to the busiest highway in Melbourne to get their message across, as they march towards and across the West Gate Bridge:
‘No jab, no job’?
How about: ‘No job, no freeway’, they say.
Lines can be seen as far as the road stretches, as the group shut down traffic:
Amazing synchronicity as protesting tradies pass by sign saying “tradies recruiting tradies”.
They didn’t have to, Dan Andrews did that for them by mandating a two week strike.
Time to sing and dance..
When reaching their destination on the West Gate Bridge, protesters take the time to enjoy the fun things in life after being locked down for longer than the entire world. A foreign sight in 2021.
Does this look like a domestic health terrorist group to you? Violent extremists?
Media in damage control..
While this dancing was occurring on the bridge, 3AW Melbourne — the station that had John Setka on yesterday to give comments that instigated the crowd — were doing their best to spin the scenes:
This caption would lead you to believe that a full scale riot has been occurring all day, with crowds tearing up the city and acting like thugs. You have seen the story to this point, however.
You can judge this bold propaganda by this radio station for yourself.
Police and riot squad arrive..
The protesters continue walking, before being met by riot squad again — who have arrived on the highway and begin firing to disperse the crowd. The group begins heading back to the city.
5pm – crowd head back, area still locked down.
Protesters soon disperse off the highway.
After 7 hours of action, it seems like they are calling it a day.
Some protesters remain in the city. Police have formed a massive barrier around CFMEU.
A few arrests have been made for those who have stuck around the area:
Dan’s press release..
As the protests began to wind down, Dan Andrews condemns the protests from happening, while praising those who remain at home following strict lockdown guidelines.
Dan says: “There’s no excuse for the terrible behaviour we have seen over the last two days”.
You’re right, Dan. There are NO excuses for loss of freedoms and no excuses needed when exercising the important democratic right to protest in a first world, Western nation.
As for the behaviour being ‘terrible’, well, the footage speaks for itself.
Protesters have vowed to return “every day” until their demands are met.
Not thugs, ‘Nazis’ or terrorists, but hard-working men and women, looking for their freedoms.

Well Bill Shorten showed his true colours, didn’t he! And listen to this for a damning indictment on these trade unions – a speaker at the Brisbane freedom rally on Saturday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uw4ITyzPZc
As I have commented in another forum, the CFMEU is repaying the govt the favor that was done to them, when Stekla and another leader were not found guilty of black mail. Both the Govt and the CFMEU are in each other’s pocket from day one. The Unions help Daniel Andrews get elected and in turn he protects them and on it goes even at the detriment of the Union Members. But these members should have known better from past history.
The trades unions and confederacies of the world are a snare. People should have kept out of them, and away from them and have had nothing to do with them.
The trades unions will be one of the agencies that will bring upon this earth a time of trouble such as has not been since the world began bringing about turmoil and confusion that fill these cities. This is clearly being seen. We were never meant to unite with secret societies or with trades unions. We are to stand free in God.
One thing is sure, the Police Union, when time comes, will sell out their members too but since the Police has let down everyone else in the country and taken the position for which others were found guilty in the Nurember trial, namely “that they only obeyed orders and are only doing their job” , no one will stand up for them, when the time comes. They are making their bed and will lie on it. The below tells all.
Great footage and comments. Heartening to see there are still some real men in Victoria. How timely is my current Quaxling of the Week, Sharon Burrows & the ACTU…and let’s throw in Sally McManus and the pathetic Bill Shorten as well. Quislings/traitors to their members and to the people of Australia. Burrows “nominated” by the great old unionist referred to by Healthactivist1 above.
Where oh where were the VicPol ??? These guys left wing and not to be disturbed ? much like BLM, Antifa etc ?? Just reafirms the fact that its all political. Comrade Dan doesn’t give a damn and certainly doesn’t give a hoot about anyone that has a different opinion other than the Almighty Saviours.
Great demonstration fellas, I,m “PROUD” of everyone of you, “WE” all are on “YOUR SIDE” I heard the cars beeping their horns in support, the “ONLY” cunts are the paid of Parasitic thugs in Blue, & the DESPICABLE, RANCID< MEDIA ! CFMEU , "SHAME" SHAME" THE ONLY UNION is FREE MEN & WOMEN STANDING UP TO THE CORRUPT TYRANNY !
Unions have protected workers, and the conditions and privileges that workers enjoy today are a result almost entirely of Unions efforts. They are the traditional enemy of big government and big business in their defence of the worker.
We need more whistleblowers on the inside like this nurse…
What absolute shit some of these talking heads come up with … talking down to people who are courageous enough to stand up against what is a medical state driven aspect of tyranny and abuse of power.
I see how people are having a go at the reporters … I hope it continues the sanctimonious condescending pieces of shit that they are
People should have Zero ILLUSION, per the FULLY PROSTITUTED Media. THE Studio WANKER [SORRY] – ANCHOR, Çomments ‘that throwing a PE Bottle @ the onsite Reporter/ Camera Combo is Çowardly & Unacceptible, but Previous predominantly Non violent [at least by general Masses] Melbourne freedom protests [Antagonistic Police Force Elements WERE in Evidence, AND, PRE Équipped’ to do same], Same WANKER [SORRY AGAIN] Ánchor’ was OBVIOUS BY HIS ABSENCE, on Commenting on ‘Steadfast Moral Fibre’ required for 2 CAPABLE Male Cops to knock a Middle aged Female Citizen to the ground ,AND @ THREAT LEVEL IN THE NEGATIVE ZONE, Doust her with Chemicals [Including straight to Face, Not sure if THIS is included in the Chemical manufacturers SDS/ Recommendations], Then offer THE VICTIM, NO 1st aid assistance! IS THIS what ‘MEDIA’ and THEIR WANKERS [Correct term this time – WANKER acronym- Without Actual Nominal Knowledge Excremental Resources, others may refer to this as THE Bullshit Factor, Apologies to Bovines for Association reference to ‘SUB LEVEL Entities; ‘Media Circus ] describes as ÁCCEPTIBLE? ANSWER = YES!
Honey drips from the Collective Medias Mouths looking straight into your Eyes with FULL SINCERITY, WHILST BURYING AN AXE INTO OUR COLLECTIVE BACKS!
Wellness to US!
I heard one of the protestors died from injuries received from the “crowd dispersal” hardware – does anyone know if this is true?
