Australians Riot Against Draconian Lockdowns
Angry Australian workers are taking to the streets.
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - SEPTEMBER 22: Demonstrators gather during an anti-lockdown protest and police officers stand guard in Melbourne, Australia on September 22, 2021. Hundreds of anti-lockdown protesters clashed with police in Melbourne, leaving at least four people injured and more than five dozen in custody. Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse more than 2,000 people â many of whom identified themselves as construction workers â who roamed along busy thoroughfares in Australiaâs second-largest city, ABC News reported. The protests were sparked by the Victoria state governmentâs decision this week to shut down the construction industry for two weeks in Melbourne and some regional areas. The government has also made it mandatory for construction workers to get vaccinated. (Photo by Brandon F./Anadolu Agency via Getty Images)
