Monica writes for George Christensen’s Nation First publication

I was very pleased to be able to write a piece for NATION FIRST, George Christensen’s new membership publication.

Here’s the lessons I’ve learnt in the fight for freedom.

I am hosting an event called The Freedom Summit Downunder 2022 in every capital city of Australia.

Our first one is in Melbourne on 13th July.

Here’s a backstory of how and why I’m running an event like this.

My name is Monica Smit, I’m a 34-year-old tax-paying citizen of the once free state of Victoria.

I started an organisation called Reignite Democracy Australia in August 2020.

I’ve attended most of the lockdown protests, been arrested several times during peaceful demonstrations, spent 22 days in solitary confinement and am awaiting trial by jury for allegedly inciting others to break COVID restrictions.

Since August 2020, I have tried almost every form of diplomatic pushback and was also heavily involved in educating voters and rallying volunteers ahead of the federal election 2022.

I want to share what I’ve learnt after two years of full-time freedom activism.

The movement no longer has the energy to be so reactive.

We cannot protest every weekend, it doesn’t work.

Mass email campaigns don’t work, they just get deleted.

Letterbox dropping has its place but is time consuming and impossible to measure.

Politics is part of the solution, but not the whole solution.

The everyday voter is mostly uneducated and unaware of the impact their vote has.

After much deliberation, I have concluded that fighting directly against these tyrants is not the answer.

Instead, we should work towards making them obsolete.

Let’s find ways to live peacefully and prosper, even in chaos.

Let’s try to stop letting their every move affect our mental state of mind.

Let’s start building communities around us, building veggie gardens, spending our money in businesses that deserve it, finding alternative medical, schooling, currency and bartering solutions.

Over the next year, we hope to help build stronger communities that can withstand anything tyranny throws at them.

Hopefully we can learn how and when to use our energy for optimum results for ourselves, our families, and our fellow countrymen.

That is why I am hosting The Freedom Summit Downunder 2022 in every capital city.

Our first event is Wednesday, 13 July in Melbourne.

The tagline for this event is – How to live peacefully and prosper, even in chaos.

This event will focus on tools and strategies we can all use to live our best lives, no matter what is happening around us.

The line-up of speakers is quite impressive but it’s not all about big names or influencers.

We have some speakers who are not well known but have fantastic initiatives.

We’re presenting a new website that connects consumers directly to farmers, a trading system where members exchange goods and services without money, a new local market network, home-schooling networks and much more.

I hope to see some of you there and if you’re not in Victoria, I’ll see you soon.

  1. I am so relieved to hear the new plan of attack.

    The days of protests are over. Towards the end of the protests held during the lockdowns the police were bringing in heavier and heavier weapons and were being given the orders to use them.

    The frequency and microwave weapons they have now can destroy a large number of peoples nervous systems for life at the touch of a button.

    Our present government won’t hesitate to bring in UN troops again, fully protecting them from any liability for deaths or injury.

    I grew up in Melbourne then moved to the West in the 80’s chasing waves, and before I found RDA I was desperate for news on Melbourne protests.I’ve always lived TV free but watched internet MSM news during the pandemic and would hear nothing but lies from police commissioners (“3000 violent thugs looking for confrontation with police attended protest and attacked police”).

    I found RDA via “The Highwire ” community page when Monica was jailed ( she was rightfuly described as “Australia’s Nelson Mandela” ).and then I discovered Rebel News and Aussie Cossack and Australia One.

    I think the change of tactics is excellent. I don’t care if WEF is laughing at us from on top of their castle. We can undermine the foundations grain of sand by grain of sand.

    I saw a post on Australia One facebook which said it all…..” AND THEN THE PEOPLE SAID NO…….THE END”

Thank you for supporting us!

Thank you for supporting the work that RDA does. You can support our work further by volunteering with us.
