The explosion of freedom activists in Australia over the past two years has given the state new targets they need to silence. On the final Tim’s Explosion before Christmas 2021 I feature the original targets of the state Blair Cottrell and Neil Erikson about the state’s efforts to stifle the new freedom movement.
Neil Erikson spent 1 month in prison earlier this year after being found guilty of disturbing religious worship after disrupting Islamic prayers at Federation Square in April 2019. Neil has also been found guilty of the same offense when he asked a question at an LGBT church gathering in Hawthorn in May 2019. He was sentenced to 3 months in prison but has appealed to the County Court which will be held next year.
Blair Cottrell also has an ongoing legal matter from 2020 accused of assault by an Antifa supporter who followed and verbally threatened Blair when he was shopping at a supermarket. In response, Blair shoved him away and he fell into an aisle shelf. The matter has been adjourned and will be heard next year in the Magistrates’ Court.
Both Neil and Blair have attended recent freedom rallies, their public presence still sends Twitter Antifa into a frenzy who have used their attendance as evidence the freedom movement is far-right. Both Blair and Neil are unvaxxed and are in no doubt governments won’t return the freedoms they have taken over the past two years.
