Thousands of Americans have staged a mass protest to ‘Save Australia’ from mandatory Covid vaccines and never-ending lockdowns by marching to the consulate in New York.
Crowds filled the streets of the Big Apple on Tuesday as they marched to the Australian consulate in Manhattan, carrying Australian flags and signs that read: ‘What is happening in Melbourne?’.
The rally first began outside the Department of Education headquarters on Monday as New York’s own vaccine mandate for public school teachers and other education staff took effect.
The protesters chanted ‘Save Australia’ as they marched through the streets and gave speeches emphasizing their support for Australians who have seen similar mandates enforced in recent weeks, which have sparked angry scenes in Melbourne.
‘What’s going on in Australia is not just going to be Australia. And when it shows up on our doorsteps, we’re gonna punch it right in the f***ing teeth,’ one speaker told the rally, referencing the recent vaccine mandates for authorized workers in Victoria.
The scenes come as Joe Biden’s press chief was questioned over vaccine mandates, with reference to directives in Australia causing ‘disturbing images’ at protests.
