Woman Almost Flips Car In Confrontation With ‘Freedom’ Protesters

Woman Almost Flips Car In Confrontation With ‘Freedom’ Protesters

The confrontation contains some pretty coarse language!

There are more wild scenes emerging from the nation's capital as protests against vaccine mandates and calls for 'freedom' continue.

Footage posted online over the weekend shows a heated confrontation between someone involved in the 'movement' and a Canberra local.

It appears to start with the two cars bumping into each other and two women screaming 'What are you doing?' at each other.

It quickly escalates from there however, and, well, how it ends has to be seen to be believed.

Over here at LADbible, we're still not sure whether a crash of this magnitude was the intended outcome, or just some really bad planning, angles and road rage on the part of the driver.

People agitating on various issues - including an end to vaccine mandates - have been in Canberra since late January.

Many of them are camped out at the Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) showgrounds.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said 'Australia is a free country', but asked demonstrators to be 'peaceful' and 'respectful'.

He also somewhat shirked responsibility for the situation, saying many vaccine mandates in place are out of his hands.

"[The] Commonwealth Government has only ever supported mandates that relate to aged care workers, disability workers and those who are working in high-risk situations in the health system," he said over the weekend.

"All other mandates that relate to vaccines have been imposed unilaterally by state governments.

"They have not been put in place by the Commonwealth Government. In fact, the Commonwealth Government cannot impose such a mandate.

"The other mandates that have been put in place by state governments are decisions that they have taken, and they are the governments that they [demonstrators] should be raising those issues with."

Opposition leader Anthony Albanese, meanwhile, told the protestors to 'Go home'.

"Don't engage in the sort of behaviour that we've seen," he said.

"It doesn't advance any cause. It doesn't assist the sort of nonsense we've seen of people dressed up in military camouflage walking around Canberra.

"If you think that's a way that you win support for your view in Australia, then I think you're very wrong."
