Freedom fighters Billy TK and journalist Vinny Eastwood arrested at Anti-lockdown protest in Auckland
Freedom fighters Billy TK and journalist Vinny Eastwood arrested at Anti-lockdown protest in Auckland today outside TVNZ's HQ on the corner of Victoria and Hobson streets.
NZ Herald reported:
Anti-lockdown activists and Covid-19 deniers have gathered in Auckland's central business district to protest the snap lockdown - with its organiser being arrested 43 minutes into the event.
And the nation's top police officer says his staff will not hesitate to deal with others flouting lockdown regulations and having unlawful gatherings.
Wow, what a heroic Police officers! They seems to be following all the COVID mandates except social-distancing of 2 meters.
Why the Police never follow this rule? The virus doesn't seem to care as well! Are Police immune from the virus?
Prime Minister Jacinda Arden was asked on the incident and she responded:
Speaking after his arrest during her 1pm Covid-19 update, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was quizzed about the event, responding: "I don't want to let the action of small numbers actually characterise everyone, because that's just not the case.
"It is disappointing that some choose to put others at risk".
There are countless people lives (AND livelihoods) at risk from the lockdowns. Only a criminal like Jacinda Arden can say what she said and keep a straight face. Truly disgusting.
Oh and media totally failed to cover another high-profile arrest which is the ONLY true journalist in New Zealand; Vinny Eastwood.
Here's the livestream of the protest including the arrest of Billy TK and Vinny Eastwood (around 1:00:00 mark into the livestream):
