The north-eastern state of Queensland is witnessing a protest against the vaccine mandates and tough border restrictions wherein Australian truck drivers have blocked the highway. This protest is causing many traffic troubles across several kilometres.
According to reports, “the drivers parked their prime movers at 5:30 a.m. on the southbound lanes of the M1 highway at Reedy Creek in the Gold Coast portion of the arterial on Monday. The highway is used by tens of thousands of Queenslanders each morning.”
This protest has been preventing all individuals from entering the state except for essential workers. The essential workers are those involved in skilled construction, farming, and must prove that no Queensland resident can do their job.
“End all lockdowns, people go back to work, and kids go back to school,” Brock told Nine’s Today show. “That’s all we want out of it; we’ve had enough of it. “We’ve had a lot the support mate, the people that showed up today is amazing. We appreciate everyone that’s come down,” he added. “But it’s all about choice at the end of the day. If you don’t want to get the vax, don’t get the vax. If you do want to get it, get it. But just don’t keep locking up people.”
The truck drivers also mentioned that they were very angry and distressed with the government.
