It was a beautiful moment. Every Australian needs to rise up, like the French have been doing for three years running now.
The Jolly Swagman has arisen.
He warns that some may get hurt, and some may die. There's no easy way through this, but there are no suitable alternatives to freedom.
Prayers up for all who love freedom.
Transcript of Riccardo Bosi's warning to Australians [He prepares them for what is going to happen, and braces them, "No consent. No consent. No consent"

“I was just following orders” was used during the Nuremberg Trials as a defense.
The police have chosen their side. It’s a beautiful thing to see people rush their lines and break through.
We’ll have to wait and see what the Aussie government does with these people…I know that they announced an automatic $5000 fine for protesting, but I’m sure they’re also going to incarcerate these people and persecute their families.
Should not have so willingly given up their guns.
Everyone can deliberately get arrested as many times as possible. That’s how Ghandi did it in both South Africa and India, and how Jim Crow was ended in the US.
There you have the charismatic leader of a liberation movement. Without raising his voice, he puts fire in the bellies of his audience. We need more like him.
Once you give up the guns, you gotta get really violent in new and creative ways, once it comes to that. Always a bad idea.
That’s how Gandhi did it because he had a government that cared about basic human rights. and did not want to appear brutal. The British government also cared about appearances, and the same is true of the other cases you mentioned.
The Australian government doesn’t care at all; human rights and civil rights have ceased to exist. And what’s more terrifying are the rest of the Australian people. The hatred towards the protesters that they were spewing in comments on Twitter threads relating to the protests is blood curdling. They feel the government repression was not brutal enough.
And what’s more terrifying are the rest of the Australian people. The hatred towards the protesters that they were spewing in comments on Twitter threads relating to the protests is blood curdling. They feel the government repression was not brutal enough.
I don’t believe those are the sentiments of the Australian people. Instead, those are the psyops of their version of the CIA. Their intel and government are weaponized, flooding the media and Internet with hatred to divide the people so they don’t unite. Prayers up - Australia can do this.
Non compliance can work - I know it’s popular to say ‘not any more’ but they can’t arrest close to 25 million people or make them go to work each day to sell milk and bread. The truck drivers shut down product deliver - there will be moves and counter moves as the public asserts they outnumber those who are trying to enslave them.
They didn’t just whip out a Gatling gun or Zyklon B gas and let fly, though. So I’d say the Australian government cares, but not as much as they should.
Plenty of people believed firehosing “nigrah”s in Birmingham was a good thing, too, but they couldn’t sustain that indifferent approval after seeing the brutalization time and again on TV. The British government cared about appearances, but only after they breached good decorum by opening fire on the WOGs at Amritzar and other atrocities.
The Aussie government will soon go too far and lose public opinion as well. It’s how this works. That and overcrowding the jails.
The reason those tactics didn’t work is because we have (or had) a government and a population that has a moral and ethical sense and also founding principles that simply do not permit this kind of behavior towards the citizens. People knew it was wrong.
But go check out the comments on any Twitter feed or even article in the Aussie press. The majority of Australians seem to believe that it’s impossible to be too harsh with these people.
And I trust you saw the video of the police intentionally shoving a 70 year old woman to the ground on her face and stopping in their pursuit only long enough to pepper spray and mace as she struggled to turn herself over. One of them sprayed pepper spray directly in her face, aiming the way you’d spray a roach with roach killer, and another leaned over and gave her a spray of Mace. They then ran on, leaving her writhing there, and about 20 more police ran by before even one of them had the decency to stop and try to help her.
She was hospitalized with a broken hip, a fractured wrist, chemical burns to her eyes and face, lacerations and a concussion. The cops who did this are getting no punishment.
Australia surprises me, but not that much. It is considered one of the most non-religious countries in the world. Unfortunately, we’re losing our moral sense too (or maybe we’ve already lost it) and our grip on our fundamental principles.
When you think of it, is this much different from the way the Jan 6th protestors are being treated? Most of them are still locked up, no brutal police have been punished (including the one who killed a protester), and the media and public opinion are savage in their attacks on the protesters. If they could execute all of them tomorrow, they would do so.
# Everyone can deliberately get arrested as many times as possible. That’s how Ghandi did it in both South Africa and India, and how Jim Crow was ended in the US.
That only works if you have a government that is, at its core, fairly decent, with at least =some= sense of shame.
The reason Ghandi was successful was because he used the inherent decency of the British people themselves as a weapon.
His tactics would not have worked in China, for instance.
The Aussies gave up their guns. Now their government can do anything it wants.
I bet the police will not arrest any celebs or politicians there not wearing a mask....
See https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment for the many stories about the Emmys from last Sunday.
The politicians know masks are not needed!!!
“But go check out the comments on any Twitter feed or even article in the Aussie press. The majority of Australians seem to believe that it’s impossible to be too harsh with these people.”
The majority of Australians do not go on Twitter, any more than the majority of Americans, Israelis, Englishmen or New Zealanders do. It does not represent the state of public opinion anywhere, and never has. It does represent a fake source for lazy journalists with an agenda, but don’t be fooled.
