AUSTRALIAN Police were branded “shameful” last night after they bodyslammed a journalist to the ground simply for covering an anti-Lockdown protest.
Aussie Avi Yemeni who is now working for Rebel News was attacked and unlawfully arrested by Victoria Police simply for reporting on an anti-Lockdown protest that he did not even agree with.
Rebel News reported that Victoria Police made numerous arrests in the days leading up to the anti-lockdown protest.
Assistant commissioner Luke Cornelius warned the protesters “feet won’t touch the ground” days before the demonstration.
Even with the warnings, arrests, roadblocks and mass police presence, thousands still gathered at the planned time to protest Victoria’s harshest lockdown restrictions.
Avi Yemini, the Chief Australian Correspondent for Rebel News, was suddenly tackled to the ground and ARRESTED while covering the anti-lockdown protest on Saturday.
The video of Avi’s arrest prompted thousands to sign a petition calling for an end to the Victorian police state that detains JOURNALISTS for doing their job.
Seven News witnessed the police abuse but refused to report on it.
Rebel News footage shows veteran reporter Mr. Paul Dowsley calling police “dickheads” for threatening to arrest him. Yemini was released without charge and given a move on order. Police alleged the journalist hindered their enforcement by reporting from the scene.
