The country of Australia is quickly proving the fears many in America have that are pushing back against vaccine mandates. The country down under has turned into a police state punishing those that violate public health mandates.
Officials in Australia aren’t backing down either despite lifting some of the strictest lockdowns on the planet now even the vaccinated could be arrested.
Premier Daniel Andrews of Victoria has announced that unvaccinated people will remain excluded from society well into 2022 and Victorians could be arrested if they don’t take their booster shots.
Andrews was attacking the other Australian provinces that are easing restrictions on everyone (including the unvaccinated).
“That doesn’t make any sense to me in any event and we won’t be doing that here,” he said.
“Why would you get the system going, have the thing up and running and then essentially pull down all of the architecture that you’ve built, the culture that you’ve changed – why would you change that four or five weeks later?”
Andrews said he won’t put a date on when unvaccinated people can take part in society and a 90% vaccination rate would not be enough for him to remove restrictions.
“I’m not going to say to someone, just wait it out, just wait for five weeks and then you will be able to the pub,” Andrews said.
“I cannot put a day on it … it will not be when we reach 90%. It will not be anytime soon. That is going to function for a period of time, well into 2022.”
Andrews declaration is a violation of Australian guidelines that state “citizens must be free from coercion and threat when making their decision to take a vaccine.”
The harsh plan being imposed by Andrews means that the state won’t be opening up at 90% vaccinations meaning that even those vaccinated could be arrested if they violate health orders.
