Monica Smit arrested in Melbourne for “incitement” – but of what?
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
THE leader of the Reignite Democracy Australia, Monica Smit, has posted her own arrest in Melbourne. But the feisty freedom fighter is going to the courts to get justice against Andrews and his regime and has launched a legal fighting fund.
The leading figure in the Melbourne anti-lockdown protests was in her car, parked by the side of the road on Tuesday, after being pulled over by a police patrol from suburban Springvale. The cop, who was polite in manner, said he was arresting her for “incitement” and asked her to get out of the car.
We are not aware of what Ms Smit was supposedly inciting. Incitement usually relates to being actively involved in causing a crime. Organising a political protest (if that’s what she was most likely to be doing) is not a crime and in fact is a protected liberty under the original Crimes Act 1914 and Criminal Code Act 1995, Section 83.4 “Interference with political rights and duties”.
However the state governments have been illegally using emergency quarantine powers to declare all sorts of gatherings “illegal”, when in fact quarantine is supposed to be a federal government jurisdiction under the Constitution. And as shown so effectively by Know Your Rights Australia, so-called “health orders” are to be made individually to a named person by a named health officer.
The arrest points to political motivation on the part of Dan Andrews’ literally fascist Labor Party regime who probably feel threatened by Ms Smit’s political movement and party that is expected to field candidates in the next Federal Election in January and the Victorian election in November next year.
Victoria Police attempted to arrest Ms Smit at a protest last year when she came to prominence, using a bus to promote protests in Melbourne. In one of the recent anti-lockdown protests she had to flee on foot in the Melbourne CBD to avoid Andrews’ gestapo-style operation.
