Melbourne protest (21.08.21) recap from independent media

An analysis of the police, government and media narrative following anti-lockdown/government protests in Melbourne on 21.08.21.

According to Shane Patton, the Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, the protest was attended mostly by young angry Victorian men with violence on their mind. Is there any truth to this statement, or is Victoria Police engaging in misinformation and propaganda?

This is my opinion and analysis based on my eye-witness reporting on the day.

  1. Psalms

    1 Blessed [indeed] is the man
    who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly,
    who has not stood in the way of sinners,
    and has not sat in the seat of evil men.

    2 But his pleasure is in the law of the Lord,
    and in his law will he meditate day and night.
    3 He shall be as a tree planted by the brooks of waters,
    which shall yield its fruit in its season,
    and its leaf shall never fade;
    and all that he does shall prosper,
    4 Not so are the ungodly; —not so:
    but rather as the chaff which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth,
    5 therefore the ungodly shall not stand in [the] judgment,
    nor sinners in the counsel of the just.
    6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous;
    but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


    2:1 Why then did the heathen rage,
    and the nations imagine vain things?
    2 The kings of the earth stood up,
    and the rulers have gathered themselves against the Lord and against his Christ;
    3 saying: Let us break through their bonds,
    and cast away their yoke from us.

    4 He that dwells in the heavens shall laugh them to scorn,
    and the Lord shall mock them.
    5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger,
    and trouble them in his fury.
    6 But I have been made king by him on Zion his holy mountain,
    7 declaring the ordinance of the Lord:
    the Lord said to me: You are my Son,
    today have I begotten you.
    8 Ask of me and I will give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.
    9 You shall rule them with a rod of iron;
    you shall dash them in pieces as a potter’s vessel.
    10 Now, therefore understand, you kings:
    be instructed, all you that judge the earth.
    11 Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice in him with trembling.
    12 Accept correction, for fear that at any time the Lord be angry, and that you should perish from the righteous way:
    when his wrath shall be suddenly kindled,

    blessed are all those who trust in him!

  2. Victoria Police is pushing for a violent riot…..and they’re going to get it. It’s astounding in my lifetime to see a dictatorship government and corrupt totalitarian police force essentially force our nation to do this….it’s absolutely astounding. This has never happened in our history before…and it’s all because of BLOODY DANIEL ANDREWS AND THE CORRUPT VICTORIA POLICE!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  3. I’m fed up I know I’ve said it many times in the past I’m literally at my wits end the clever government has started their planned device now with the upcoming “easement” of restrictions

  4. In my life I have never seen the government ignore the concern of a mental health until now because it will get in their way with their plan

  5. The government and media are bloody full of it. I watched your full broadcast of the protest and it was an absolute shock and sicking how the police escalated the tension rather than de escalate it. Anyone that has been to a live event knows that a massive crowd over 3000 pushing forward into a bottle neck can end in death.
    This was the most disgusting example by the police I have ever seen.
    Thanks for your work mate. The truth needs to be told.

  6. I'd say you know more than the police commissioner because you were there. He was lying through his teeth and your own live stream shows that. Or the police he got reports from were lying, or both. The fact the media only use like, 20 seconds of footage really doesn't show the breadth of what goes on. The violence was so minimal, but the cops kept shooting, even after you turned off the camera, as they chased us to the market.

  7. The only violence i see… IS the police being violent to australian citizens, who are lying on media , and lets not forget police are are supose to protect, but this was not their intent they came with a range of weapons, who were hurting the civilians – who were all unarmed, police came to TO DO Violence , they are the evil bunch of liars . And this is a twisted police confession of what the police intent was, and what their purpose intentional plan was.
    Which was, is to harm the marchers, utterly filthy way to act by police , all evil liars . The police were playing war games, being agents of violence against civilians- just like the Taliban does , against its people, which is against civilians . There was no need for the police to even be there. Police were the only violent ones there who were are the abusers on innocent civilians .

  8. Stuff andrews, dam the steps need to be higher lol , and high time he had more jabs , what a drug pusher, what a lying communist dictator! with a adjenda.

  9. Yes the police are the escalators of the violence almost all the time and have mainstream media portraying its the crowds being violent, so the propaganda is working on what the government is wanting to be believed as unruly unlawful people.
    It's about globalists RESETTING THE WORLD to control the world.
    Dan Andrew's needs to be removed that would be the first thing that should happen.

  10. Yes mr commissioner we are angry, we are fed up with lies that are spoken from grown men like yourself, in positions of power and responsibility,blatantly twisting the truth and outright lying, along with breaching our constitution and human rights charter. You are disappointing VicPol to be in bed with MSM.

  11. Love seeing your calm approach as an alternative approach to the other also interesting coverage by other more "energetic" content creating channels. Well done and thank you for providing a pretty realistic look at what is going on here!

  12. Give a tyrant a fancy costume and and a badge and they will do whatever their superiors request of them.
    We have the same problem here in America, and it will get ugly… Stay safe guys.

  13. Media ARE looking from above and judging people. "…Thank goodness (the police) have military style weapons to fire at the crowd"! As long as they take home their huge salaries, the talking heads will be ok, they don't need to think, just read what's on their teleprompter – they were "just doing their jobs". Bring on Nuremberg II. Looked like more than 4,000 people to me. That was bullshit by the Police Commissioner. We have eyes, we can see who was there. All kinds of people, not just young men and not all angry but peaceful citizens worried about the chaos being perpetrated by the "powers that were".Police are behaving like "Brownshirts" in Germany in the 1930's.

  14. What lies the press is spewing. Presstitute: "What we saw was terrifying" and Stasi chief: "they had violence in mind from the moment they arrived". It's hideous. No wonder lanestream journos are not welcome at these events.

  15. Thank you for your breakdown of the protests & offering a completely different perspective to the mainstream media’s narrative!
    It is overwhelmingly obvious that the protestors make up such a diverse range of Victorian citizens…
    Men, women, families, children, young, old, black, white & all shades in between!
    It’s evident that the people of Victoria have had enough of these ridiculous lockdowns, have had enough of our liberties been taken & are against vaccine mandates.
    Pro choice!

  16. 24.48… the pigs were using automatic weapons.. covered with armor top to toe… !!.. there is no justification for there actions!!… not one!!.. fascist tool of the police state!!….
