Pregnant Woman Arrested Over Anti-Lockdown Facebook Post

A Victorian woman was arrested in front of her children on charges of ‘incitement’ after allegedly organising an anti-lockdown protest. The 28-year-old was charged with incitement for a Facebook post, calling for a socially distanced ‘Freedom Day’ rally against the state’s coronavirus restriction measures. Now, she will have to stand trial at the Ballarat Magistrates’ Court in January next year. The video sparked a major backlash online, with the term ‘fascism’ popping up regularly in the comments.
