Use of such weaponry against peaceful civilians likely violates the Geneva Convention, and could therefore be a war crime.
Canberra police have been deploying directed energy weapons (DEWs) against the peaceful Freedom Convoy protesters, according to reports.
Disturbing videos and photos circulating social media show Canberra protesters, including women and children, who appear to have been badly burned by directed microwave energy weapons, with blisters on their faces, arms, and torsos.
Editors Note: Personally, I have several friends who travelled to Canberra on the 12th and who reported strange burning sensations, itching, ringing in the ears, headache and general ill-feeling which lasted a few days after returning. They do not appear to be sunburnt and were wearing hats and sunscreen throughout the day.
