Australia pushes new measure to detain those who speak out against COVID lockdown

MELBOURNE, Australia (PNN) - September 18, 2020 - Weekend demonstrations have flared up in Australia over the last month, as Aussies have vented their frustrations and attempted to take back control of their communities after a surge in virus cases prompted the fascist government to unlawfully re-implement some of the world's most draconian social-distancing measures.

If there is one thing that terrifies increasingly tyrannical governments, it’s a loss of control of the narrative, which is why the Australian government is getting a jump start on curbing any the voices of people daring to spread information that questions the fear-mongering being used to keep Aussie citizens under lock and key.

A new bill is expected to be debated by the Victorian government in the State Parliament this week. It unlawfully purports to give local authorities the power to detain people who refuse to self-isolate.

If passed, the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) unlawfully empowers the government to detain anyone labeled as a “high risk” or likely to spread COVID-19 negligently.

A state government spokesman said that the rule could be applied to “conspiracy theorists who refuse to self-isolate or severely drug-affected or mentally impaired people who do not have the capacity to quarantine.” Those arrested under the new rule will be housed in quarantine facilities. (Hitler would be proud.)

So far, many of the anti-lockdown demonstrations have been held on the weekends. At least 200 people were fined and 74 arrested at a protest in Melbourne on Sunday. If the bill is passed, some protesters would be rounded up and arrested.

Clearly, the fascist government’s intent to extend powers and detain anyone who speaks out against their policies should be alarming to readers.

Fascist thug officials have already arrested a Melbourne woman for allegedly writing pro-anti lockdown posts on social media.
