Actress Isabel Lucas attends anti-vaxxer protest at the NSW-Queensland border


Isabel Lucas joined hundreds of anti-vaxxers at a rally to protest Australia’s Covid-19 vaccine mandates at the New South Wales-Queensland border on Sunday.

The former Home and Away star, 36, followed the event’s memo to ‘wear white in solidarity’, and shared photos of her fellow anti-vaxxers to her Instagram Stories. 

Many protestors at the Reclaim The Line rally carried signs calling for the end of border restrictions and Covid vaccine mandates, with very few wearing masks.

Isabel, who was the community liaison at the event, donned a white linen jumpsuit, a lime green scarf and brown sandals, and carried a black backpack.

The Byron Bay-based star wore her caramel locks out and looked to have gone makeup free. 

Isabel shared photos to her Instagram Stories of her fellow anti-vaxxers, with many writing their occupation and time in the job in black marker on their T-shirts.

The protest was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for certain industries and occupations. 

Last year, Isabel hit headlines when she shared dangerous anti-vaccination views on Instagram while commenting on a post by conspiracy theorist Pete Evans.

Throwing her support behind the former MKR judge, she wrote: ‘Freedom of choice is every human’s right. I don’t trust the path of vaccination.’

Surfer Taj Burrow added: ‘Vaccines not needed, just a good immune system.’ 

Plan International Australia, a charity for girls’ rights, had announced on March 27 last year that Isabel was joining its stable of ambassadors.

However, following her controversial comments, she was swiftly dropped by the organisation in mid-April after less than a month.

A Twitter user wrote: ‘Are you aware your ambassador, actress Isabel Lucas, is stoking fears during this crisis? She’s also anti-vaccination… go figure.’  

Plan replied: ‘We are aware of the issues and as of today, Ms Lucas and Plan International have come to a mutual agreement to end the ambassadorship.’

Isabel has a long history of activism dating back to 2007, when she and fellow actress Hayden Panettiere joined activists on surfboards to try and stop a pod of dolphins being slaughtered in Japan.

In 2020, Isabel also attended a ‘peaceful’ anti-5G protest in Byron Bay, marching from the Jing Organics health food store to the proposed location of a 5G tower.

The protest was in response to a vote from the Byron Bay Council, which voted in majority for a 5G upgrade at 8 Acacia Street in the Arts & Industry Estate.

Isabel was one of the guest speakers at the protest and was featured in fliers and promotional material advertising the march.

Recently, bizarre new conspiracy theories have circulated on social media claiming that 5G ’causes Coronavirus’ by ‘sucking oxygen out of your lungs’.

These claims have been debunked by medical experts and technological experts. 

Anti-vaxxers often spread conspiracy theories, claiming that ‘boosting’ the immune system through diet, supplements and sunlight can make people immune to certain diseases. 

Isabel later clarified her remarks on Instagram, saying she has ‘concerns around “mandatory” vaccination, not vaccination itself’.

Vaccinations are vital to reducing the spread of preventable diseases, and any suggestion otherwise flies in the face of science and the advice of medical experts around the globe.   

The Coronavirus vaccine is a safe and vital measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.  

So far, 89.8 per cent of eligible people are fully vaccinated in NSW, with 93.9 per cent having had at least one dose.
