On 30 November 1983, Australia's CIA, the ASIS, held a terrorism and hostage training session at the #Melbourne Sheraton Hotel (now the Mercure Hotel), the problem was that they didn't tell the hotel or Victoria Police: mayhem ensued, a #thread 🧵
The ASIS (Australian Secret Intelligence Service) wanted to hold a mock surveillance and hostage rescue becausei n March of the same year they had started training a covert team whose role would be to protect or release Australians captured by terrorists overseas.
The following people took part in the raid of the Sheraton Hotel: 10 operators, 4 ASIS officers, 6 civilian trainees, two Australian Army Reserve commandos and one Australian Army sergeant participating as an observer in the foyer and they were heavily, heavily armed.

#Australien ist die Blaupause für das, was global bevorsteht: #Lockdown Phase 4. In #Melbourne wurde nun ehemaliger Soldat verhaftet, der sich kritisch zu d Maßnahmen auf #Facebook geäußert hatte. Anstiftung zu Protesten wird als Straftat geahndet. Das steht im #Lockstep /2
Verfahren der #Rockefeller Foundation. Seht selber, was dann geschah.

#nichtohneuns #querdenken

Auch in #Melbourneprotest zieht die Polizei gezielt einzelne Personen aus dem Menge, um die Masse zu frustrieren. Zur Wahrung der Demokratie wird man dies nur entschlossen aufhalten können.

Helicopters dropping strange kind of flash bangs and dispersions last night.
Footage taken by Jonny Sanghera

This is his take on the events.
Anyone know more?

“Military chopper flying in the #Melbourne sky dropping some sort of powder through little bomb like explosions... 👇
filmed one last night! I’m not gonna stand there and film this one who knows what the fuck they are releasing 😵 could be something as simple as a pesticide that reacts with alcohol as they know everyone’s consumption of alcohol has increased due to the plandemic..
3 when we used to spray the orchards we used a deadly pesticide that you couldn’t be anywhere near if you had any alcohol in your system for two days as you would become extremely sick.. with the same symptoms as the alleged kung flu.. anyway go outside and have a look 👀”

People, you took your eye off the ball. You had the information to tell you what was going on, but you let the #corporatemedia distract you.

[A] It was a bioweapon, and
[B] we have the antidote.

Let's go back to that original paper in J Virol 2005.
From the CDC. Fauci's people.
What was the reason that they were looking at #chloroquine for SARS coronaviruses?

Because they were developing them as bioweapons.

And #hydroxychloroquine was known to be an antidote.

It doesn’t matter that you look round and see empty hospitals & a Global hoax response to COVID19. You’re going to be forced to take the vaccine or wear the ‘Yellow Badge’ of shame & ostracizing.
Rt if you see & understand this!
Just look at #Melbourne and the Nazi police there. Masks are not enough, you can’t go out. Coming to a USA city near you. Don’t think you’ll be immune.
🎵🎶 The Mask police, they live inside of your head
The Mask police, they come to put you in jail.
The Mask police, they're coming to arrest all day.
The Mask Police, they’re coming to take you away!

Dear @cityofmelbourne @SallyCapp_
I am a doctor at the Royal #Melbourne ICU.

I worked 56 hours over four days in helping look after some of our state’s sickest patients.

At 10pm last night, I left work to find a fine on my car dashboard.
The day before lockdown, my bike was stolen from outside this hospital.

Public transport is off-limits to prevent exposure to the virus, and transmission to colleagues and patients.

Your “free permits” are long gone. There were too few to begin with. Many missed out.
In lockdown, who do you think is parking in the streets by the hospital?

It is the doctors, nurses, orderlies, pharmacists, physios, technicians, cleaners, cooks, ward clerks.

So when you send a parking inspector to Parkville, know that it is these people you are targeting.

LA PANDEMIA «CONTINUA AD ACCELERARE», con oltre 16 milioni di casi segnalati in tutto il mondo: lo ha dichiarato oggi il direttore generale della @WHO Tedros Adhanom in una conferenza stampa online.


Torna a salire il numero dei contagi in diversi Paesi asiatici, tra cui #Cina, #HongKong e #Vietnam, dove sono state evacuate circa 80.000 persone dalla città di #Danang.

La progressione della pandemia preoccupa la @WHO.


In #Cina 101 nuovi casi di contagio in un giorno (il 28 luglio), la cifra più alta da aprile: chiusi bar, palestre e musei vicino ai focolai. A #HongKong obbligo di mascherina per i 7,5 milioni di residenti e i ristoranti possono servire solo piatti da asporto. Image

Melbourne’s R0 is now up 2.5 as per @JennyMikakos

That means every person with #COVID19 #COVID19Vic is infecting another 2.5 people. 1/…
Back in March Dr Angela Merkel used her communication skills & #STEM background to eloquently explain what R0 is and why even just a rise above 1 to 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 is significant.

Worth watching interview 👇🏼which has subtitles for nonGerman speakers. 2/
Recapping: the current R0 of 2.5 in #Melbourne is very alarming.

Every person with #covid19 (test proven or not) will infect 2.5 people.

Fabulous gif by @siouxsiew @xtotl of @TheSpinoffTV shows the exponential increase well & what happens if we #StayAtHome 👇🏼H/T @simonahac 3/

Hello. Today's #VirtualRailfanning trip is a bit different: the end of roller destination blinds on #Melbourne trams in the 2000s. 1/ Here Z3 229 is on Melville Rd West Coburg with an inbound Route 55 service on 3/5/2006. In November 2007 229 would receive LED indicators.
2/ On 16/5/2006, Z3 141 is on Swanston St in the CBD with an outbound Route 16 service bound for Kew. It is about to pass St Paul's Cathedral and its central spire which was being refurbished at the time. 141 also received LED destination indicators in November 2007.
3/ The 2nd prototype B1 class articulated light rail vehicle, B1 2002 crosses Spring St with a St Vincents Plaza-bound Route 31 shuttle on 22/3/2006. Trailing end blinds show destination 'City' rather than 'Collins St West End'. Converted to LEDs while stored at Southbank 2006-8.

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

I am excited to arrive in #Melbourne to take part in the first-ever Asian-Australian Leadership Summit, which aims to highlight and address the under-representation of Asian-Australians in political, business, government and civil society leadership. #AsianAusLeadership
@Asialink_au @PwC_AU @OrgAALA @Austrade @BankofMelb @Committee4Melb @dfat @AusUnlimited @asiacapable @AsArticulations The Leading for Change report highlights the lack of #CulturalDiversity in senior leadership. While Anglo-Australians represent 58% of population, they hold 76% of senior leadership positions. Those from non-European background are under-represented by 16%. #AsianAusLeadership

Right-wing extremists were already on spy agencies' radars… via @canberratimes
1) A reasonable analysis, to which I would add a few things. First, ASIO notes that: 'Individuals motivated by other ideologies [than Islamist extremists] – such as an extreme left or right-wing ideology – may consider conducting an act of terrorism.'
2) That's why a no of ppl in some way assoc w anTEEfa stuff in AUS have received visits in the past few years. Further, concern over left/right extremism is not brand-new; it was also noted in the agency's 2010--2011 report. See :
