Anti-Lockdown Protests Across Europe, Will Americans Show More Resistance to This Tyranny?


A wave of anti-lockdown protests swept Europe this weekend as our freedom-loving friends across the pond fought the draconian measures.

The biggest one took place in Vienna, Austria as 10,000 people marched to fight tyranny:

Protests also broke out in Amsterdam:

The resistance is also rising in Italy:

Zero Hedge covered the protests that swept across the continent:

Multiple anti-lockdown demonstrations were observed in Europe over the weekend. The largest one was seen inĀ the Austrian capital, Vienna, Saturday, where at least 10,000 peopleĀ marchedĀ against new coronavirus restrictions. Then thousands more were seen in Amsterdam, the Netherlands’ capital, denouncing newĀ restrictive measures against their freedoms imposed by the government.

On Saturday, the demonstration in Vienna was mostly peaceful, even with a massive crowd. As for protests in Amsterdam, well, manyĀ clashed with riot police in an unauthorized demonstration.

According toĀ Reuters, the unauthorized gathering was around the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum art galleries on Sunday.

People were waving flags and carrying signs the read:Ā “Freedom: stop this siege” and singing “What do we want? Freedom!”.

Many of the anti-lockdown protesters wore no masks nor practiced safe social distancing measures, such as standing six feet apart from one another.

Reuters notedĀ theĀ original protest on Museum Square was denied a permit. Still, demonstrators showed up anyway, angered that their freedoms have been whittled away under the guise of coronavirus restrictions.

The crowd became more irate throughout Sunday afternoon as they clashed with riot police.

From the Independent:

Thousands of people have staged an unauthorised protest inĀ AmsterdamĀ against a national lockdown imposed to slow the spread of theĀ coronavirus pandemic.

Riot police broke up demonstrators who gathered at a square in front of the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum art galleries carrying signs reading “Freedom: stop this siege” and chanting “What do we want? Freedom!”.

More than 5,000 people had signalled their interest in attending the protestĀ on social media, leading to officers pre-empting the start of the gathering.Ā Ā 

Police used water cannon to try to disperse the gathering after 15 minutes.

Authorities had declined an application for the protest to be held on Museum Square. The demonstrators refused to leave when police told them to do so, and some threw fireworks.

Police had warned that the denied application meant no one was allowed on the museum square.

They also noted on Twitter that demonstrators were refusing to comply with public health orders such as the requirement to wear masks and keep 1.5 metres apart. There were reports that some of the protesters were hugging as a deliberate act of defiance.

Witnessing thousands of people resist these draconian measures is an encouraging sight.

For months, governments around the world have used COVID-19 as cover to institute widespread tyranny and authoritarianism.

We need to see stronger resistance back on this side of the pond.

Share this to tell your friends & family it’s time to take our freedom back.

Especially if you live in one of America’s lockdown-happy states.
