Australian Government Begins Army Patrols to Keep Citizens in Lockdown Until Next Year
Things are really super sketchy in Australia. The covid restrictions have been getting increasingly more intense, as a result two weekends ago massive protests started. However, this past weekend thousands of police were deployed in rings around metropolitan areas to stop people from assembling to protest. At the same time this past weekend, Google blocked Sky News from uploading news feed to their YouTube channel.
Check out this video report. The Australian army have been dispatched to keep citizens compliant and locked-down. The vaccination rate is approximately 20%, and the government intends to keep everyone locked down until the vaccination rate reaches 70%. According to Prime Minister Morrison, that threshold *should be* achieved by the end of the year. That means Australians will remain locked-down for the remainder of this year.
Moonbattery has this:
Australians need permission from the federal government to leave the country—applications succeed about half the time—and Australia’s states throw up their borders against one another at the slightest hint of trouble. Residents of Sydney may leave their homes only if it is “essential,” and not stray more than six miles when they do.
Meanwhile, hardly anyone is dying of Covid in Australia.
Remarks a self-described “born-and-raised Sydney-sider” now living in New York:
I am now embarrassed to say I am from the country that locks up its citizens due to a tiny handful of cases caused by a comedy of errors with hotel quarantine, vaccine rollout and an insistence on “Covid zero” in the land where you are still more likely to be killed by the sun than by Covid-19.
I long for the day that I can visit my friends on Alcatraz, or even better, when they can leave their prison island and visit me on the outside.
If a nation would give up its liberty for anything, it will give it up for practically nothing.
