That is the question.
Hundreds of anti-vaccination protesters have defied social-distancing measures at rallies across Australia.
Protesters claiming the COVID-19 pandemic was a “scam”. Gathered at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne on Saturday, and carried signs declaring protestors were against vaccines and 5G technology.
Uncle Max opened up the protest with welcome to country in front of more than 500 Sydney protesters. They voiced conspiracy theories regarding not only vaccination, but also 5G telecommunication networks, fluoride and large pharmaceutical corporations.
Michael Sims protest organiser spoke of his sons Vax injury and has been the leading light around the Vaccination conversion. The group convened at Hyde Park in the CBD before holding a singalong of anti-vaccination songs and walking to NSW Parliament House.
With the lock down slowly starting to open up the movement that is known as the Anti-Vaxxers is slowly gaining momentum. Social distancing regulations went out the window and it was back to pre Covid-19.
In a statement, police said those found in breach of COVID-19 directions faced fines of $1652 each but no fines were handed out. They chanted “freedom of choice” and “my body, my choice” on the march, with some attempting to raise the spectre of a “new world order”.
