The protestors, who wore matching uniforms named themselves “common law sheriffs” tried to make entry into the police station to serve their own documents demanding the apprehend of WA Governor Kim Beazley and Mr. McGowan. The unmasked protestors were rejected entry, ordering cops to let them pass and remove their masks when talking to them.

One lady stated, “We are Commonwealth public officials and we have authority over you.”

Another protestor named Graeme Watkins said “We want him removed as soon as possible. What he is doing is against the constitution. We will be back. We would not sit down and watch it and we are sick and tired of all this.”

The supposed marshals handed the document-which has no legal basis-to cops, who accepted it and also provided a proof of complaint card.  The protest remained peacefully but emotions ran high, One lady cried with happiness as the complaint card was returned. She said, “It is a historic day.”

The rally came a couple of hours after anti-vaxxers brought the Mitchell Freeway to a standstill on Monday morning (31st Jan) at the height of the peak hour and back-to-school traffic. The road was blocked around 07:55 AM, prior to police moving the protestors on around 08:00 AM.
