Nationwide Convoy Demonstration – 24th July 2021

24, July, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST

Free
CAR CONVOY DEMONSTRATION FOR THOSE UNABLE TO ATTEND JULY 24 WORLD FREEDOM RALLY
You can RSVP here. It’s impossible to know how many locals will get involved but even if it’s JUST you…it will feel good and you won’t regret it 🙂
DATE: 24th July 2021
TIME: 12 pm Midday – to align with National Freedom Day Rally
WHERE: Closest Main Street strip to where you live
INSTRUCTIONS:
Drive up and down the Main Street strip closest to where you live. Have fun, wind down your windows and LOUDLY play the National Anthem or other great Aussie tunes.
1.  Hang your essential goods shopping bags upside down so the base of the bag is tucked inside the car window and the straps are hanging out to be sure you’re leaving the house for ‘essential reasons’. Feel free to also hang an Australian or Eureka flag if you have one and want to. If it’s safe to do so, passengers can hold signs out the window if there’s foot traffic.
2.  Drive within your restricted km radius in order to keep the demonstration ‘legal’. If two or more cars show up, you can create a convoy. Pullover, choose a lead car, and go for it 🙂
3.  If it is safe to do so, someone can video the convoy from the back. Please avoid filming ANY number plates or faces and don’t drive and film at the same time. If you’d like to share these videos or photos, please send them to active@reignitedemocracyaustralia.com.au (be sure to ask permission from anyone whose face is in the shots)
4.  The convoy needs to end at a supermarket (essential reason to leave your house) and park as close to each other as possible. While shopping you can chat and if it feels comfortable…share numbers and/or emails and start your own local community group. It is my wholehearted belief that small community groups are going to be the reason we win our freedoms back. They also double as great support networks. RDA now has the structure in place to support multiple community groups (we already have over 60 Australiawide).
5.  Go shopping and enjoy!
6. If you want RDA support, please email us at active@reignitedemocracyaustralia.com.au. Tell us how the convoy went and we will support you from there. Even if you did it alone and want to share your experience with us, please do.
8. Let’s show the rest of the world how Aussies make our voices heard, even during lockdown!!
*Note:  it is essential to be respectful to everyone including authorities. If you are questioned, you are going shopping…which you legitimately are.
We can tell you what the ‘rules’ are but we can’t control what you do. Every state has their own ‘restrictions’ and of course, it’s your responsibility to know them. But RDA will never TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, the government is doing enough of that 🙂
Enjoy!
Special thanks to the RDA supporter who gave us this idea. She knows who she is 🙂
This event reminds me of the birth of RDA. Back in August 2020, we hosted a ‘legal’ protest to counteract the draconian restrictions…and here we are again. The pent up anger within us is not healthy, we must find ways to release it.
