Today, police in Melbourne trapped, pepper-sprayed, beat, arrested and fined anyone who dared exercise their fundamental human right to protest.
The hundreds who attended the organised rally outside the State Parliament from noon were met with brute force.
Protesters were demanding an end to all remaining lockdown restrictions.
Many were also calling for premier Daniel Andrews to resign.
Today’s protest comes as the state recorded it’s fourth consecutive days of no new Coronavirus cases. The rolling 14-day average of new COVID cases in Victoria is only 1.9 cases.
On June 6, the state allowed tens of thousands to rally for Black Lives Matter. There were four new cases that day, but the police didn’t arrest the organisers or protesters; they took a knee.
