BREAKING: Controversial pandemic legislation has been passed in Victoria
The Victorian Government’s controversial pandemic laws have officially passed the upper house of state parliament.
PANDEMIC BILL COMETH
The Public Health and Wellbeing Amendment (Pandemic Management) Bill passed the upper house 20 votes to 18 this afternoon, just 30 minutes ago.
The laws, which replace the state of emergency powers, were allowed to pass with support of four crossbenchers.
Transport Matters MP Rod Barton, Animal Justice Party MP Andy Meddick, Reason Party MP Fiona Patten and Greens leader Samantha Ratnam voted with the government.
It comes after days of debate and a sitting that lasted 21 hours.
Debate on began in the Legislative Council about 3pm Tuesday and ended shortly after midday on Wednesday. MPs worked their way through each of the bill’s 58 clauses and 83 amendments before it returned to the lower house, where the changes were approved just after 7pm last night.
The bill will now go to the lower house for final approval, where the government has a majority. This all but ensures the legislation will become law by the end of the week.
The state’s current state of emergency powers were set to expire on December 15.
This bill comes into effect from December 16, when the current state of emergency expires.
Under the legislation, the premier and health minister will have the power to declare a pandemic and enforce orders such as lockdowns, mask-wearing, vaccination mandates, and quarantine.
The pandemic orders can differentiate between cohorts of people based on characteristics such as age and vaccination status, relevant to the public health risk.
Several amendments were made to the bill to secure the support of Rod Barton, including the creation of a joint parliamentary committee that can review public health orders and recommend they be overruled by a majority of both houses of parliament.
Labor has chosen Ivanhoe MP Anthony Carbines and Eltham MP Vicki Ward to sit on that committee, while Lowan MP Emma Kealy and Rowville MP Kim Wells will represent the Coalition.
The legislation has become a key focus for pro-choice groups, who have occupied the steps of state parliament for weeks in protest.
The government initially thought the bill would pass last sitting week, but it needed an additional vote after former Labor minister Adem Somyurek declared he would return from a self-imposed absence to vote against it.
However, Rod Barton was all that was needed to tip the vote back in the government’s favour.
Ms Patten said this passing will set a “benchmark” for jurisdictions across Australia.
A benchmark for indefinite, perpetual virus warfare, we assume she means.
With the ‘arrival’ of Omicron on Australian shores, the Victorian government now have the power to play with the lives of citizens in the state at their sole discretion.
Interesting times to come in the future for Victoria.

Just wanted to say Thank You to who ever TOTT news is… thank you for the Great videos and facts of the Australia wide demo updates and what people really think and are doing.. Truckies in and around Hobart were driving with horns pressed, from Brighton /Bridgewater over the Bridgewater bridge.. guessing into Hobart NIL in the local papers?>? ANY idea what they were up to??? Kind regards… J
Today marks the darkest day in Australia’s history. We no longer live in a democracy and the government of Victoria has declared war on its citizens. If I were one of the 4 cross bench MP’s I would be in constant fear of my life for eternity, they will go in down in history as the totalitarian enablers of the Communist Coalition of Victoria. Now is the time for united mass non-compliance.
Here is the link to Gene Sharp’s blueprint to remove a totalitarian government – From Dictatorship to Democracy. This was used to remove governments during the Arab spring.

This is do or die for yours and your children’s future
Including “Health and Wellbeing” in the name is an insult to those of us who work for actual health and wellbeing. They should call it what it is: the Public Harm and Suffering Bill.
Your comments are excellent,it’s an insult to call these people medical experts,they are bullies who work for a hideous religious cult, they don’t even know what health means!
This is your democracy and freedom! What a joke, why would we possibly say we’ve got democracy, when the people’s voice doesn’t matter in the end!
The great irony is that if they can pass a law as bad as this then they don’t actually need to. Already they can do exactly what they want. Lawless times.
This was political bribery at its best. As I have stated in the past comments I have made on TOTT news, we are living in the midst of an ‘epidemic of crime,’ at which thoughtful, God-fearing men everywhere stand aghast. The corruption that prevails, it is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Every day brings fresh revelations of political strife, bribery, and fraud.
Every day brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide. Who can doubt that satanic agencies are at work among men with increasing activity to distract and corrupt the mind, and defile and destroy the body?
Again, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. And against those, humans alone are powerless at winning.
“The Great Controversy” is playing out in front of our eyes and earth is the battle ground as Lucifer maintains that he is the prince of this world. But one day soon it will end, and I know how it ends, I have read the good book. It just depends on which side each one of us is on. Choices have to be made.
I’m on your side LEGITANO7. Gee, 700,000 Victorians on the streets of Melbourne last Saturday clearly made no impression whatsoever on this travesty of a “government”. Don’t stop doing that, people, but there now needs to be additional activity aimed at every MP (Lower & Upper House) who voted for this totalitarian Bill. Forget about the next election…as someone suggested to me recently, there are probably sufficient spongers, grifters, moronic leftists (and I don’t mean they have the latest scariant…their mental deficiency is permanent and profound, not the transient manifestation of a fictional “mind virus”) et al to vote KJD Andrews and his bunch of unAustralian traitors back in at the next election. And in any case, in a State as corrupt as Danistan, can the voting system be trusted? it is probably worse than the bluest State in the US, and look what happened there. Life must be made very uncomfortable for these traitors…
Thank you Graham. Well as I also stated in the past, all roads lead to Rome. If you want to see who is behind all of this, look to Rome and more importantly the Vatican and the papal system and the papacy. The agenda has not changed since the dark ages.
The papacy using the Jesuits, is doing Satan’s bidding to conquer this world and have the worship he wanted to have in heaven, to be like the most high and to ascend to the mount of congregation. It is not hard to look and research and instantly the penny will drop, that the papacy intends the bring back the dark ages to rid the earth of the sabbath keepers and the plan that was laid out decades ago, is currently being ushered into action, through this covid planned-demic.
There is not one political leader, not one mainstream or social media director or owner, not one global institution owner or leader, not one famous music entertainer, not one famous actor, not one banker or major institutional investor ( Vanguard comes to mind ), not one top level judge or Attorney General, not one Health officer or Medical Advisor, not one youth activist ( Greta Thunberg comes to mind ), not one Spiritual leader that has not been to Rome and not met the pope in the last six months or so. Why? So they can further his agenda that will soon transition and be under the guise of climate change.
I also believe, that the purpose of the gobal uprise, which is also planned, is to further the next item on the agenda, which is the introduction or Martial Law on a worldwide scale,as it was during the dark ages followed by the inquisition but this time using modern technology and warfare. Some may not believe, but the good book never lies. The video below seems to agree with me. Very interesting to say the least.
