Thousands of protesters march across Australia

December 2021 Thousands of protesters march across Australia Thousands gathered at rallies across the country on Saturday as part of an international day of protest against COVID-19 lockdowns and vaccine mandates. Demonstrators held placards as they marched down streets in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. In several cities, anti-lockdown and mandate protesters were met by counter rallies of those voicing pro-vaccination messages. In the Victorian capital, a large police presence was monitoring two separate crowds in Melbourne's CBD. Protesters have been camped outside Victoria's Parliament House throughout the week calling for the scrapping of the state government's controversial pandemic bill. On Saturday, thousands more joined them to march through the city. Meanwhile, another group of protesters, who labelled themselves anti- fascist, gathered for a rally near Trades Hall in Russell Street. One of the anti-fascist rally organisers, Nahui Jimenez, said the demonstration was "a message of solidarity with health workers". Meanwhile, about 4,000 people gathered in Adelaide's Rundle Park as part of the protests, and began marching through the city centre. They were particularly focused on vaccine mandates. The demonstrations in Adelaide attracted about 4,000 people and caused traffic jams, as reported by the ABC. The group marched down North Terrace, King William Street and Grenfell Street before returning to Rundle Park.
