During the tyrannical lockdowns in Melbourne some people stood tall and fought hard for freedom.
People like Monica Smit. And people like Topher Field.
Topher’s opposition to Dan Andrews’ insane and dangerous lockdowns provided inspiration, hope and leadership to many people during those depressing times in Melbourne and eventually earnt him the attention of Victoria Police.
The Victorian Police knocked on his door three times to warn Topher that he should not oppose Dan Andrews’ lockdowns. Ultimately, Topher was arrested and charged with incitement. He was one of the last people still facing charges before they were eventually withdrawn only a few weeks ago.
Topher directed the documentary ‘Battleground Melbourne’ and has just released a book, Good People Break Bad Laws, describing his experiences during this most shameful chapter in Australian history. He also opens up an important philosophical debate about our relationship with the state which I believe every Australian should engage in regardless of their views on COVID, lockdowns or vaccine mandates.
Order Good People Break Bad Laws today and use the code ‘BERNARD’ to get a discount – even better it may still arrive in time for Christmas!
I interviewed Topher a few days to ask him about his book and to find out whether he was still optimistic about the future of Australia after COVID lockdowns.
