A pregnant mother in Australia has been arrested for planning an event to protest the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown mandates.
The New York Post reports:
A pregnant Australian mom was handcuffed and hauled away by cops in front of her children for planning a lockdown protest online, according to video footage and a report.
Police arrested Zoe Buhler, 28, for incitement at her home near Melbourne after she created a “Freedom Day” protest event on Facebook and urged people to come, according to the the Guardian.
Buhler, of Ballarat, created the since-deleted “Freedom Day Ballarat” event scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, proclaiming, “Please join us in our fight for freedom and human rights.”
As a Victoria police officer slapped cuffs on her, she insisted she hadn’t broken a law.
“I don’t really understand what I’ve done wrong. This is ridiculous,” she can be heard saying.
“I have no idea why you guys are doing this. My two kids are here. I have an ultrasound in an hour. I’m happy to delete the post.”
