Victorians must stand up for their rights

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

As our rights are stripped away, our economic independence weakened, the democratic processes overwritten, and the media, for the large part, telling half-truths in what can only be termed as propaganda, Victorians and all Australians are in uncharted territory.
Yet if we rise up against the establishment and fight for our individual rights, we are labelled as uncaring, selfish, radical. In Victoria we have been threatened by the police that they will crush any protest against Daniel Andrews and his dictatorship. In light of this threat of aggression, how do we stand up for what we believe in as an individual and for our individual sovereignty?
We can only make changes if we stand together in a show of solidarity. And despite the polls (or propaganda) there are many Victorians who do not agree with the status quo.
