Australia is now a fascist state.
Citizens are locked in their homes the majority of the day.
Police use violence against peaceful protestors.
Checkpoints prevent interstate travel.
And the Australian regime is even promoting COVID-19 quarantine camps.

We need regional quarantine to keep Queenslanders safe.
So we’re making it happen.

For anyone who studies history, the parallel between 1930s Germany and 2020s Australia is startling.
It took under two years for Australia to plunge from a free society to a totalitarian police state.
And the insane amounts of power for the state continue to increase.
A new surveillance bill that passed last week gives Australian police unprecedented powers to manipulate online data.
The bill gives police the authority to add, change, or delete online data for any individual.
Imagine the police hacking into your email or social media and sending messages disguised as you.
That’s the Orwellian reality Aussies now face.
And it’s a precedent that should horrify anyone.
The new powers will allow police to "disrupt data by modifying, adding, copying or deleting in order to frustrate the commission of serious offences online."

Check out my latest article guys. The Australian police are able to hack into your online data, pose as you, modify things you post, delete things you post all in order to achieve their objective. Scary precedent. 👇🏼👇🏼 https://t.co/LV2JhyHoFl

New warrants allow police to monitor online activity without accusing us of a crime, take over our accounts +edit our data (which could be used as evidence) +it's easier to put us in jail. Making the AFP judge, jury and executioner is not how we deliver justice in this country.

Caldron Pool provided further detail:
A new surveillance bill that gives police powers to modify and add to your data online has just passed both houses as of August 25, 2021.
The Surveillance Legislation Amendment Identify and Disrupt Bill 2021 is set to introduce new law enforcement powers which will enhance the ability of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) to combat serious offences online.
According to the Explanatory Memorandum, “Cyber-enabled serious and organised crime, often enabled by the dark web and other anonymising technologies, presents a direct challenge to community safety and the rule of law.”
The bill also states in the explanatory memorandum that the additional amendments will target crimes such as child abuse and exploitation, the sale of illicit drugs, human trafficking, theft and fraud, assassinations, distribution of weapons and terrorism.
Three new powers will be introduced for the AFP and ACIC. They are:
- Data disruption warrants to enable the AFP and the ACIC to disrupt data by modifying, adding, copying or deleting in order to frustrate the commission of serious offences online.
- Network activity warrants to allow agencies to collect intelligence on serious criminal activity being conducted by criminal networks, and
- Account takeover warrants to provide the AFP and the ACIC with the ability to take control of a person’s online account for the purposes of gathering evidence to further a criminal investigation
These Data Disruption Warrants must be made to a Judge or nominated Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) member and are able to be applied for if the officer suspects on reasonable grounds that the relevant offences are being committed, that they involve or are likely to involve data held in a computer, and the disruption of this date substantially assists in frustrating the commission of these offences.
I think most of us can agree that the legislation, IF applied correctly could do wonders for serious cyber-related crimes. I mean, what normal, sane person wouldn’t want to rid the streets of paedophiles and child abusers or stop an assassination or terrorist plot? The problem with legislation that gives unprecedented power into the hands of law enforcement comes down to trust. Can we trust these agencies to not misuse or abuse these never seen before powers?
It was only recently that we saw unarmed US civilians labelled as domestic terrorists at the January 6 “insurrection” on Capitol Hill. Do we trust that the ideologies of the law enforcement in Australia align with that of the people? Or will this legislation be used for purposes beyond what the normal, rational person would deem as a “terrorist threat”?
The ability to add, change, amend, and delete a person’s online data and pose as an online identity can have serious and life-altering repercussions if these powers get in the wrong hands.
One online petition states, “What this means is that the AFP can log into your email, your Facebook, Instagram, any other social media, and not only view it but actually alter it however they want. They can send emails on your behalf, they can post things on your behalf, they can engage in criminal activity on your behalf in order to reach their objective.”
Here’s a link to the legislation.
Since the Department of Homeland Security already views those against COVID-19 restrictions as domestic terrorists, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the U.S. government do something similar.
