“The fall of the world’s most livable city, through the eyes of those who risked everything to save it.” During the Covid hysteria, Melbourne, Australia, once the world’s ‘Most Liveable City’ became the world’s ‘Most Locked-down’ city. Battleground Melbourne tells this story from the perspective of the activists and journalists who tried to save the city of Melbourne, setting the record straight and ensure the world will forever know the truth. Despite all the government and mainstream media’s false accusations, and the innocent citizens who were assaulted, arrested, and imprisoned by the authoritarian regime headed by Victoria State’s Premier Dan Andrews, the people’s determination and love for freedom, and their once wonderful city, compelled them to fight on. This is a cautionary tale that has shocked the world with a dysfunctional parliament, sham ‘inquiries’, politically motivated arrests, secrecy, abuse of human rights, and heavily armoured riot police roaming the streets with ‘shoot on sight’ orders against unarmed civilians. Weaving together interviews from key freedom activists and journalists, with live as-it-happened footage from on the ground, this film tells the world the truth of how Melbourne fell, as seen by the freedom fighters who dared to stand in the face of a tyrannical government and fight for the freedoms of themselves and their children.
