Police will fine paramedic Sally-Ann John $1,000 after she attended anti-lockdown protest in Sydney this weekend

A veteran paramedic is fined by the police and fired after shouting lies about vaccines during the city’s illegal anti-lockdown protest over the weekend.

Sally-Ann John, who proudly calls herself “Ambo Sal,” was one of approximately 3,500 people who marched down Broadway on Saturday afternoon, defying public health regulations.

In a live stream, the 52-year-old attacked police, claiming they were “fucking themselves”, falsely claiming that Covid shots are “not even vaccines” and taunted viewers who believe the science behind it as “sheep”.

During her broadcast, Ms. John was inundated with comments demanding that she go home, to which she replied, “F*** you and your comments.”

“All you say, go home – you have no idea, you’ve been brainwashed, you’ve all been brainwashed.

‘All the sheep that like to lick it up – ‘oooh I’m going to get my vaccine’. Yeaaaah riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii It’s not even a vaccine. You should do your research’.’

Ms John’s main workplace is Liverpool’s Covid hotspot, according to her listing on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registry.

A viewer claimed on Twitter that Ms. John, from Kemps Creek, had a “terrible cough” during the broadcast.

Ms John’s actions alarmed her colleagues – with NSW Ambulance referring Ms John to NSW Police at the weekend. Several Twitter users in Sydney had called for her resignation.

“The matter was immediately referred to the NSW Police Department for investigation into a possible violation of public health regulations,” a spokesman for the NSW Ambulance said.

“NSW Ambulance can confirm that the paramedic is not providing patient care at this time.”
