CRACKDOWN UNDERWAY MASS ARRESTS IN MELBOURNE DETAILS LATER IN POST...
THE AUGUST 31ST ARREST OF REIGNITE DEMOCRACY FOUNDER MONICA SMIT HOURS AFTER SILENT PROTESTS OPPOSING LOCKDOWNS AND FORCED VACCINATION
Its now Wednesday morning in Melbourne Australia with the Victoria Supreme Court's 10 am hearing (8 pm Tuesday Eastern US time)...HEARING VIDEO..
This hearing is the appeal of Monica Smit, founder of Reignite Democracy Australia, arrested in Melbourne hours after dozens of silent protests occurred on August 31st in opposition to lockdowns and forced vaccination.
She was accused of "incitement" and is being held under bail conditions that would require her to give up her activities opposing lockdowns and forced vaccination.
Smit staying in prison because of those bail conditions often in solitary confinement because she is refusing COVID-19 testing.
But there's more happening in Melbourne than that it all started last Friday with construction workers setting up their "tea room" for work breaks on the street in Melbourne.
That's because the government of Victoria state had ordered the "tea rooms" shut down because of the coronavirus.
There was the other Saturday protest in Melbourne but on Monday the "tradies" as construction workers are called in Australia back on the street confronting union leadership in lockstep with Premier Daniel Andrews on forced vaccination for workers in the construction industry in Victoria.
And yesterday others joined the construction workers with a crowd said to number some two thousand according to mainstream media reporting.
The protest in the streets in front of the state parliament building and eventually onto the major streets and the M1 freeway as well as the Westgate Bridge.

If the police choose violence using their weapons at the Shrine they will desecrate the site possibly damage it with their weapons the mainstream media is not live at this protest from what I see.
I see an umbrella in one of the livestream videos and yeah that can repel the pepper spray.
One man at the shrine notes the use of the Anti-Terrorism Squad on the protesters today an elite force designed to combat terrorists. He said the police tactics today forced the protest to move to the shrine.
