Thousands Join Anti-Lockdown Protests In Australia Amid New Restrictions

Thousands of anti-lockdown demonstrators took to the streets of Sydney
and other Australian towns on Saturday to protest new lockdown
measures amid a surge of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Dozens were arrested and charged after crowds broke through barriers
and clashed with officers, hurling bottles and anything they could get
their hands on.

The unmasked protesters marched from Sydney's Victoria Park to Town
Hall. estimates 15,000 people took part in the march. Many
chanted anti-lockdown slogans and held signs calling for "freedom" and
"the truth."

Footage on social media shows thousands of demonstrators marching
through Sydney's downtown area.

There was a significant police presence, including mounted police and
riot control officers in response to what authorities said was an
"unauthorized protest."

    Americans, when you watch Australian cops bashing the crap out of
Aussies for exercising their right to protest, I just want to remind
you that Australians are completely disarmed.

    That's all :)

The demonstrators defied restrictions on non-essential travel and mass
public gatherings that could be extended through October.

The Greater Sydney area has been locked down for a month as infections rise.

Protesters were also seen in Melbourne and Adelaide.

There's discontent with Australians being forced into lockdowns again
as an outbreak of the delta variant began last month.

Protests are not limited to Australia. New COVID rules have been
implemented across Europe as Delta infections flare-up, which
demonstrators in France and Greece recently took to the streets. The
UK has even triggered widespread panic through a new app that notified
tens of thousands of people they must quarantine for ten days because
of possible exposure.

Multiple US cities are now requiring people to wear masks indoors amid
surging cases.

Riddle me this.
If the tests work - why the false positives?
If the masks work - why the 6 feet?
If the 6 feet works - why the masks?
If all 3 work - why the lockdown?
If all 4 work - why the vaccine?
If the vaccine is safe - why the no liability clause?
