Musicians, entertainers, artists, teachers, nurses, police, paramedics, fire fighters and the general community, will unite at the #ReclaimTheLine rally at key locations across Australia this weekend.
The events will oppose vaccine mandates and passports – with plenty of music along the way.
The creative arts industry has been significantly impacted over the past 18 months by lockdowns, vaccine mandates and other restrictions.
The December 12 #ReclaimTheLine, the third to be held across Australia in recent months, will support the nation’s musical talent in a very special ‘Face The Music’ edition.
It will be one of about 20 Face the Music rallies across the country.
#ReclaimTheLine has grown into a vast movement of industry workers, frontline workers and the wider community standing against vaccination mandates and vaccination passports, with crowd numbers growing exponentially at each rally.
A #ReclaimTheLine spokesman Christian Marchegiani said as the push for freedom gained momentum across Australia, the event on December 12 would be bigger, better and more important to attend than ever.
“Each rally we’ve held has brought more and more people together to stand against medical apartheid, and to protest against their livelihoods being threatened in what can only be described as a devastating and disproportionate response to a virus,” he said.
“We are in unprecedented times. Face The Music is about supporting the creative arts and music industry, which has been decimated due to lockdowns and is now facing the scenario of discriminating between patrons who are vaxxed and unvaxxed.
“Throughout history, music has been a vehicle for freedom, for revolution and change. Face The Music keeps the spirit of this tradition alive, as we unite through music and love.”
Mack said Face The Music couldn’t come at a better time as State Governments across Australia were more divided than ever in their approach to vaccinations and other mandates.
“New South Wales, for example, is expecting significant easing on restrictions for all on December 15 while neighbouring Queensland is taking a heavy-handed approach. Those who are unvaxxed will be shut out of participating in many aspects of society,” he said.
He added: “Queensland has also announced harsh new vaccine mandates for people who work in schools, early childhood centres, youth detention facilities and airports.”
“The disparity between approaches across the country is creating confusion and chaos, not to mention profound negative impacts on the health and well-being of our communities on many levels.”
The Face The Music rally is an inclusive, peaceful and family friendly event.
As always, people are invited to wear a white T-shirt with #ReclaimTheLine on the front, and their profession and years of service on the back.
Participating locations include: Adelaide, Albury, Alice Springs, Atherton, Bendigo, Cairns, Canberra, Central Coast, Darwin, Dubbo, Forster-Tuncurry, Hobart, Melbourne, Mudgee, Newcastle, Perth, Shepparton, Sydney, Queensland-New South Wales Border (at Tweed) and Wollongong.
Sydney has just announced a bigger and better location with the route starting at Hyde Park, moving across the city down Elizabeth St, past Haymarket and into Surry Hills to end up at Prince Alfred Park.
