Breaking : Australians Troop Out En Masse Protest Against Lockdown

Published

on

Anti-lockdown protesters have gathered outside the Australian Open in Melbourne Park, hours before the state’s “circuit breaker restrictions” kick in.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced a five-day lockdown from 11.59pm on Friday until 11.59pm on Wednesday due to a “hyper-infectious” outbreak of COVID-19 cases at the Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport.

Victoria Police were at the scene including a line of officers and some mounted officers as hundreds marched through the CBD.

The Australian Open has been allowed crowds of up to 30,000 but those cease at midnight.

Nick Kyrgios’ third round blockbuster with Dominic Thiem could well be the last match played with fans this tournament.

Gatherings are not permitted under the new rules
