I have never seen so many people in all my life, and I have been to several Grand Finals at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

A gigantic crowd has rallied against Victoria’s vaccine mandate, and against proposed legislation which would allow Premier Daniel Andrews to declare a pandemic at at will. Estimates for the size of the Melbourne crowd range between 200,000 and 450,000.

To give an idea of the ridiculous number of people who turned up in.Melbourne, this XYZ reporter met someone who watched the crowd march down Bourke Street from the vantage point of the Elephant and the Wheelbarrow on the corner of Bourke and Exhibition. The crowd took nearly a full hour before it had finally gone past.

It snaked down Bourke Street from Spring Street to Elizabeth, and then up to Lonsdale. The.crowd marched to Flagstaff Gardens and absolutely packed it out.

This aerial photo does not do it justice, by the time we arrived the gardens were overflowing and people were still coming.

The usual mix of music and speeches were on show at Flagstaff, the most moving moment coming courtesy of an Aussie veteran who pointed out the tragedy that so many of our countrymen have fought tyranny overseas, yet now tyranny has arrived at our shores, courtesy of our own government.

The rest of Australia’s capital cities saw similar crowds. Sydeny’s crowd was at least 100,000:

With similar numbers in Brisbane:


And Perth:

In all honesty, this XYZ headline is probably quite conservative. Even last weekend’s claim of 40,000 at the Melbourne march was hopelessly short.

Aerial shots prove last weekend’s crowd was bigger than Vietnam War protests, so the real figure was likely upward of 100,000, and today’s was much bigger again.

Today, anywhere between 500,000 and a million Aussies marched across the country against the vaccine mandates. They even turned up in regional centres:

This is an insane number of people. As with previous protests, it was ordinary people who turned up. Ordinary working class Australians with their families who don’t want to be forced between keeping their job and taking a dangerous vaccine. The numbers in Melbourne alone obliterate the media narrative of strong support for Covid Tyranny.

Only a handful of the most rabid communists could be bothered turning up in support of Daniel Andrews.

Andrews’ tenure hangs by a thread. He is facing a revolt within his own party to get the Dictator for Life legislation pushed through the upper house. If he can’t get it done by December 15 the current State of Emergency will end, and he will be hard pressed to make a case for it.

This is the tangible political result which these massive protests can achieve. There is every chance that enough political pressure can be brought to bear to defeat the designs of Dictator Dan. The message from the last month is, keep protesting.
