Monica’s Legal Defence Fundraiser

Monica Smit is the founder of Reignite Democracy Australia, a grassroots movement created in response to the Victorian government’s catastrophic handling of the COVID pandemic.  On Tuesday 31st August, Monica Was arrested while driving her car and detained on charges of alleged incitement.

Since the arrest, Monia appeared before the magistrate and was offered bail. Monica declined to sign the bail order as the conditions would deny not only her but every single Australian the right to express their god-given democratic rights. 

Monica’s solicitor stated that the bail conditions were some of the most onerous conditions he had ever seen and that some may have even been unconstitutional in their effect… The first consequence would be an immediate dismantling of Reignite Democracy Australia, which would then impact every other similar website! Mani Shishineh of Legalbit Lawyers, declared that “signing that bail order would have effectively put an end to democracy in Australia!”

Monica has an excellent legal team who offered their services pro-bono for the services provided to date, but we are now asking for support from the Australian people to help cover the costs of the coming fees and prepare us to face the fight ahead. This is potentially going to be a long battle and we may have to go from the Supreme Court to the High Court, thus all the financial help we can raise is greatly appreciated.

Monica’s vision has always been to empower people by giving them a voice and providing them with honest, timely and truthful information; please help us to preserve Monica’s right to these very values. Any little bit helps and is greatly appreciated!t

  1. For some reason l am having difficulty accessing a payment area to gladly donate for the release of our wonderful Warrior Monica.
    Can anyone help me get the right area.

    1. Norma1
      I had the same trouble. The Donate system has adopted the shopping system and it makes harder to find the right button. Keep trying and don’t stop!

  2. Where is the signed warrant?
    What is the crime?
    Where is the victim alleging a crime has taken place?
    Without a victim, no crime has taken place.
    In which case, the only reason why a penalty can apply is if a contract has been broken.
    Has Monica signed a contract saying she won’t stand up for Human Rights?
    Has Monica signed a contract handing her rights over to another man or woman, thereby making her a slave?
    If so, produce Monica’s master, who claims to own her and then produce the contract saying she is their slave.
    Does the Government believe it to be the slave Master of the men and women of Australia?
    If not, then they have no authority and neither do their POLICy EnFORCErs.

      We are not living in Communist bloody China or North Korea, Russia would look bloody great, Adolf Hitler & Joseph Goebbels would be really bloody proud.
      My brother fought in Vietnam in the battle of Long Tan for Christs sake, he did not fight for this SHIT.
      Aussie soldiers fought, became disabled & BLOODY DIED in wars to avoid this SHIT.
      There are no words strong enough to describe scum.

  3. It is so good to see so many people get on board with this fund raiser and the funds raised so far. I pray Monica will be back in a flash. Let not this party be defeated. God bless to Monica and her parents. Keep up the good fight.

  4. What a sad day for our country, democracy and free speech is our god given right and Monica you are standing up for it. What a hero you are.
    We truly are living in a Police State, I never thought we would see it come to this in my lifetime.
    Keep strong Monica.

  5. If you want to let Monica know how you feel, if you want to support her in person, you can.
    While we cannot send her emails that she could receive, and we cannot visit her, we can send cards and letters.
    Post offices should be open at least on Saturday morning and then during business hours throughout the week, so we can buy postage stamps and cards/envelopes.

    This is the address (from the video clip by her mum and dad):

    c/o Monica Smit
    Corrections Victoria
    GPO 123
    VIC 3001

    Don’t put anything in the letters and cards, only your words.

    Craig Kelly presentd the (unconstitutional?) conditions Monica is required to comply with in order to be released before her trial in November today (3 Sept). They should appear in Hansard by early next week. Check the below URL. If you find it, please share it.

    Hansard is an official record of parliamentary debate. There are Hansards available for state parliaments also.

  6. I tried to donate today but kept on getting “Server” errors when switching into the shopping cart. Rather than give up, I tried again 30 minutes later and it worked. So please please please don’t give up. We all really need to stick it to the corrupt politicians once and for all. Reignite Democracy is a community, not a dictatorship and in no way can Monica ever be accused of “incitement”. In fact, she has always been so careful not to inadvertently incite people. Reminds you of what happened with Serene Teffaha! This is just the actions of a power crazy government who feel they are so self-important that believe that they are above the law. Absolutely disgusting. Absolutely gutless!!!!!!!! I really hope this action pushes the house of cards over.

  7. The State direction on public health is so outrageous.
    First of all, it’s Fake pandemic.
    How? Well, prove me wrong if there is isolated virus of COVID-19?

    Since day one, there is not public transparency for the interest of the public to know and understanding the scenario for public health in regard of vaccination program.

    Secondly, vaccination program were force up to now to the public without any transparency evidence wether the vaccine are safe and effective or not in these ingredients and so forth.

    What I mean by saying that vaccine are not safe and effective because no one cannot prove or responsible to ensure that the vaccine are safe and effective by show the evidence in scientific and biological formula.

    So all the scenario that fake from pandemic of COVID-19 that adopted by State government in Australia and put policy in place to the public are actually incompetence with Federal Law sec 109, and from base on fake pandemic, State government were doing so wrong in so many level of the law in this commonwealth country and so against the federal law and international law on basic human rights.

    Politically State government could say many things and adopt many things in their agenda or goal, but then must be evidence and transparency with the truth in place, if cannot to do so, then what they are doing is criminality against their own citizen as the people and its law as a common law in this country.

  8. Howard did exactly the same to Pauline Hanson, because he was scared of her as a patriotic Australian, who threatened to expose the lies and criminals, who don’t work for us, but instead work for the global super elites, under their bureaucratic arm, the United Nations, the head global terror organisation.
