Freedom Breaks Out as Australian Crowds Defy Lockdown Directives to Vegetate

“It was busier than the Easter Show. It was crazy. I’ve never seen it like that before, even on school sports days.”

Crowds of people thronged outdoors in Sydney on Saturday, enjoying “lockdown” and ignoring pleas to stay at home as NSW struggles to contain the Covid-19 Delta strain spread.

At one venue, Sydney’s Centennial Park, a visitor told news.com.au it was “mayhem” with cars and crowds and that she had “never seen it so busy”.

Sydneysiders seemed to be at odds with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s advice earlier this week to “Please stay at home unless absolutely necessary”.

She hammered home that message again in her Saturday morning press conference announcing 35 new virus cases in NSW, noting that while “the weather is great”, caution was needed.

“ … if you do want relief from your home today, if you have been staying at home and doing the right thing, please avoid shopping centres or indoor areas,” she said today.

“And if you are exercising with people who are not from your household, please make sure you keep that social distance and where you can, if you want to get exercise, please avoid shopping centres or indoor areas.”

But at Centennial Park, where the park’s centre was closed off, people crowded around the edges and customers crammed into the cafe without masks while failing to observe social distancing rules.

“It was busier than the Easter Show,” one park visitor, identified as Natasha, told news.com.au.

“Cars were honking horns, we were getting pushed off the footpaths and on to the horse track.

“It was crazy. I’ve never seen it like that before, even on school sports days.”

At Bondi, which has had more than 70 “venues of concern” listed by NSW Health, including 20 on the “close contacts” list, maskless people strode the promenade by the beach.

In Redfern Park, exercise groups were below the recommended number of ten only, but there were around half a dozen groups training within close quarters of one another.

At Double Bay, a personal training group appeared to have done exactly what Premier Berejiklian warned against: “If you are outdoors exercising in a group of ten, make sure the ten doesn’t become 20”.

Elsewhere in Sydney, including at Flemington Markets, people crowded in to do their Saturday morning shopping, while a news.com.au reader reported that at Darling Square, “every outdoor table and bench is full”, and that Sydney Park was “packed like a normal Saturday”.

On Twitter, some posters were calling the closures a “Clayton’s lockdown” or questioning why retail stores were still open and adding to the daily expansion of Covid-19 locations.

Locations at Bondi, North Bondi, Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach on the NSW Health list include 39 casual contact listings, six transmission venues of concern and several transport routes.

NSW Police have issued 78 infringement notices to people who have left home for unacceptable reasons, including tourists visiting the Jenolan Caves because they were “bored”.

On Friday, NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant said the exposure sites were “shifting”.

“The message is, please don’t go out and about shopping in retail, in any setting, if you have got symptoms,” she said.

“It also highlights the importance, as people are moving around in shopping centres, please do assume that you are next to someone who may have covid and ensure you are wearing a mask at all times.”

It is very stupid what the CIA have done by creating the illusion of this illness Covid especially at time when there are zero flu deaths to create the illusion.

They are greedy, they are going too far, and they will pay a price for their greed.

They are destroying any governments credibility and even the creditably of the stooges who they are trying to turn into the hero’s of Covid, the far right publications and politicians who give us the real facts but are ultimately fascists. Nobody will survive the anarchy they are creating, even them.

Clearly these idiot cops don’t have enough to keep them occupied.

Here’s Johnny, he wanted to do something useful with his life and contribute to society in a meaningful way.

Instead, he joined the NSW Police Force.

This was inevitable. People are sick and tired of endless lockdowns that do nothing other than destroy freedom and cause misery on a mass scale.

I think people have reached the point where they have decided that they would rather live free and die, than die and be unfree.

“People are sick and tired…”

More importantly, it looks like they are finally starting to get organised against all this Corona Chan BS.

Admittedly early days, but at least there’s a spark…

Meanwhile, if you know anyone who should be hanged at the Nuremburg 2 Trials, here’s a website where you can tag them for prosecution and execution.

I note there’s a good number of Australian politicians already on the list, but so far no-one has named the Chair of CEPI and advisor to the PM on Corona Chan “vaccines”, Jane Halton.

I got a dumb idea from a kiwi , lockdown all the old vulnerable people which is pretty easily done , all the rest are free do as they want taking standard precautions that work , forget the masks , they don’t work . This is the historical method of fighting a pandemic (covid19 isn’t !!!!) You quarantine the sick people not everybody ! If some one gets sick put them in Quarantine and watch the people they were with . Don’t put 1million people in Lockdown because you find 2 people with covid19 , happened in Auckland 2-3 months ago .

Hooray for logic and plain old common sense!

But it’s not going to happen – the Australian political class and medical beauracracy have all sold their souls to creepy Bill.

And what creepy Bill wants, creepy Bill gets.

Excellent idea. However, Australia does not have adequate, purpose built quarantine facilities. Hotels don’t cut it as proven. And locking folks up for a week or two, don’t cut it either. Check out how many have done their two weeks, tested and ALLEGED to be clear, then three days later, after spreading their bugs to all and sundry, all of a sudden become ill.
I need some of our ALLEGED medicos who seem to be doing a lot of grandstanding to explain why this is so.

Tragically, this entire covid scam is far darker than people are suggesting, and by no means simply the result of medical and political incompetence on a scale never before seen.
The latest research from the University of Almeria in Spain shows the vaccine vials to be full of graphene oxide, which causes blood clotting when injected, and which is also responsible for the magnetic phenomena being reported worldwide.
Those supplying, mandating, and disseminating these poisons are involved in a plan for mass genocide; and having placed themselves thereby outside the law, must now be arrested, charged, tried, sentenced, and executed.
Publicly.

As Bart Simpson might say, these “vaccines” are the gift that just keeps on giving.

Who knows what surprises are in store for us when they roll out the “booster shots”?

“Those supplying, mandating, and disseminating these poisons are involved in a plan for mass genocide; and having placed themselves thereby outside the law, must now be arrested, charged, tried, sentenced, and executed.”

Here’s where we can place our early votes for the execution candidates –

If you know the identity of individuals complicit in the Corona Chan crimes against humanity, and have the evidence to support it, name them.
