Protesters in New York City marched from Brooklyn to the Australian Consulate in Midtown shouting, “Save Australia!” in astonishing scenes that went viral across social media.
Video footage captured by independent journalist Brendan Gutenschwager showed protesters waving Australian flags and carrying placards demanding an end to vaccine passports, mandatory vaccination, and medical apartheid.
‘What is happening in Melbourne?’ read one, most likely in response to the terrifying footage shot in Melbourne Victoria of police counter-terror units firing on Freedom protesters with rubber bullets and capsicum spray.
Mainstream media in Australia painted the protest in New York City as a ‘far-right, anti-vax’ event.
Various personalities in the press took to social media to speak against the protest.
The US is having more Covid deaths DAILY (approx 2000) than Australia has had the whole pandemic (approx 1300).
We may not love lockdown. But we’re saving ourselves OK. https://t.co/Ccds23fVTJ— Ginger fully vaxxed Gorman 🌈 (@GingerGorman) October 5, 2021
According to Gutenschwager, who was on the ground with the protesters, it was an extension of current protests staged in solidarity with the Australian people.
New York City has come under harsh medical restrictions in recent months, resulting in a grassroots protest movement similar to the Australian Freedom rallies. The group was concerned about disturbing footage coming from Melbourne. They handed out Australian flags, made speeches, and then took their protest to the Australian Consulate.
