In 1979 truckies blockaded the roads in to protest against horrendous road taxes and won against the government of the day.
Tomorrow, August 31, 2021, the truckies in the eastern states (at least) are planning to do something similar. At the same time there has been planned another protest, this time a silent protest across Australia at Government Houses and local council offices. This time the stakes are much higher — our freedoms and the right to live in a free democratic society.
Right at this moment the Australian federal government (not North Korea) has passed a bill in the parliament, the Identify and Disrupt Bill 2021, which when assented to by the Governor-General, will give the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and all those other surveillance agencies the power to remove any of your social media content, to read and delete your emails, and even to alter and send emails and messages from your accounts. Sounds a lot like a communist regime doesn’t it. Well, that is because it is. (Even this post would be deleted under that legislation.)
