Police in Melbourne have been forced to use pepper balls and rubber pellets to scatter 2,000 protesters during a rally in the central business district. Demonstrators had defied stay-at-home orders to protest COVID-19 restrictions and mandatory vaccines. More than 60 arrests have been made. It’s the second day of demonstrations in the locked-down Australian city. Most protesters are construction workers, who are rallying against mandatory vaccination rules for the sector. They were joined by anti-vaccination groups and people opposed to the city’s extended lockdown.
