    Thanks for these, Dover. They really do need to be gathered somehwhere as a record of events.
    I listed a few the other day on the open thread. Some of them are recorded above.
    But ther was one where the Anti-Terrorism Police in army fatigues floored and monstered a man in hihg vis gear who was a protester which really should be included.. I can’t link to twitter but maybe someone else can gather this one and add it.

    Does anyone know what the increase in the Vic police force has been over the past 4 years? It’s like Dan has set up a mega army. There are swarms of them.

    Anything before Sept 18, 2021, I will add on another post. Just too daunting to do all in one. But please feel free to add here.

    Been sending the video of Avi outside of CFMEU house on Monday evening to various people I think could be swayed to our cause.

    The truth, in real time. Over 90 minutes.

    Setka is a low vile rat. He sold out the rank and file and the latter knew it (in real time). Hence the righteous subsequent anger.

    Will take my allies where I can find them at the moment. They are allies. I live among them, in my “LGA of obsession”, friendly, salt of the earth types who always say hello, when I’m out doing my run.

    My polyglot neighbours are decent people. We will hopefully shortly bring this bizarre stalinist idiocy to a long overdue end. 🙂

    There have been numerous times where trivial news items have triggered split opinions in msm and government. In This situation msm is in lockstep with Vikpol and Government. It is seriously a disturbing situation. The violence inflicting upon Melbourne citizens is appalling. Where the fuck is the HRC? Still sucking on each other’s pronouns?

    There is nothing violent about HOP Time. It is a righteous and long overdue ending of totalitarian idiocy.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but I believe it is referred to as seal clubbing.
    It’s back in vogue, but only for VIPs.

    If VicPol are randomly gang tackling and bashing people I wonder how long before random groups of people start gang tackling and beating isolated Police?

    This is something Victoria can be proud of, they are the best in the world at oppression and police brutality.

    The Tyrannical Scenes out of Australia Grow Darker and More Disturbing

    What’s going on in Australia may be the most disturbing story of the year. A once, somewhat flourishing democracy has been reduced to a tyrannical medical state in which people are violently abused by government authorities for daring to walk outside. All in the name of fighting COVID-19, of course.

    Unfortunately for those that live Down Under, there is no end in sight, and the scenes are only growing darker.

    I suppose Victoria is a fertile recruiting ground for our new “Quarantine “ camp guards.

    The irony of those most outraged about the death of an American serial crim in police custody – George Floyd – being now the same people cheering on police brutality here, like the cop who had a young woman in a choke-hold.
    In fact, double irony, for those people who think it is okay to protest on behalf of a dead American crook (which he was), think it is also okay for police to crackdown in Australia very harshly on those protesting the rights to have their freedoms and jobs preserved, without interference from government and others.

    In one of those links, two male coppers are holding a woman down. One appears to have his knee on her neck, the very tactic which supposedly killed Floyd.

    Sadly, all the videos and stills that Victorians have taken will make convincing ‘evidence’ to be used by the government, media and police, to justify the putting into permanent, general legislation, the extraordinary powers that the police currently hold under this state of emergency.

    Would that explain some the outrageous overreaction and brutality of police? “Photo Ops”?

    On at least 2 occasions, at the end of his press conference, the chief of police seemed to be alerting people to the fact there would be another demonstration the next day. Seemed out of place to actually highlight an event you did not want to happen.

    After the X-Benchers have ‘negotiated’ with the premier and the legislation passes, Victoria will have officially become “Victoria, the Police State”.

    Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison Brags About Human Rights During U.N. Speech, While State Police Violently Beat Citizens in The Streets Protesting to Support Human Rights

    September 26, 2021 | Sundance | 134 Comments

    A remarkable contrast video shows the words the Australian Prime Minister delivered during the United Nations General Assembly, while contrasting the brutality that Morrison’s various police units are unleashing in the streets all around Australia.

    The original version of this video is being throttled by Google [SEE HERE]. However, a Rumble Version has been uploaded. The video used to overlay the speech is actual news footage from the past five days in Australia.

    In virtually every large metropolitan area in the country, State Police, Riot Squads and jackboots can be found beating citizens who leave their homes or refuse to show their approved transit papers. Australians, who attempt to protest the COVID lockdowns and forced vaccinations, are subject to being shot, beaten, arrested and in come cases of female victims, sexually assaulted by police officers. Australia has descended into totalitarianism, and is not easily the most dystopian state in the former free democratic world.

    The Taliban in Afghanistan are mild compared to the police units operating in many cities including Melbourne and Sydney. Checkpoints are commonplace everywhere, and quarantine camps for the non-compliant have been established. It is beyond absurd.

    That video of scomo with the images of the Victorian Gestapo should be played daily during the election period next year to remind people that voting for any of the major parties will inevitably give this result.

    WATCH: Police move in to force HEALTHCARE WORKERS out of protesting in Melbourne
    Masked, vaccinated and socially distanced but banned from speaking out.

    On Monday, dozens of police officers descended on Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy to break up a peaceful, silent protest against vaccine mandates.

    The protest was attended by some 50 healthcare workers and only lasted for about half an hour before a bus full of armed police officers arrived to issue everyone move on orders.

    Protesters, many of them already vaccinated, wore their scrubs and PPE and held placards denouncing the government’s attack on personal choice and bodily autonomy.

    I was on the scene to speak with the protesters and witness the excessive police response.

    WATCH and SHARE the moment police arrived to kick out the protesters:

    One nurse who works at the vaccination hubs said, “ninety per cent of the people I’m vaccinating are there because they want their freedoms back… that’s not the right reason to make a medical decision”.

    One nurse who works at the vaccination hubs said, “ninety per cent of the people I’m vaccinating are there because they want their freedoms back… that’s not the right reason to make a medical decision”.

    That is the take away that needs to be broadcast far and wide.

    This is how much the governments have ground down the people, all the while pretending to be concerned, caring, and solicitous for their welfare.

    Gladys may be better than Sneakers, Stairman Dan, or Palacechook, but as Samuel Johnson said:

    Sir, there is no settling the point of precedency between a louse and a flea

    Well next election lets bring the Purina dog powder to get rid of them all and get the guard dog instead.

    This article is morally and empirically wrong.

    It also claims to be morally and empirically correct.

    It’s offensive, apartheid bollocks.
