Protesters in Australia, who oppose covid measures and mandatory vaccination, blocked the West Gate Highway in Melbourne and clashed with police. It is the second day of violent protests, as construction workers have been ordered to be vaccinated.
The government of the Australian province of Victoria requires builders to receive a vaccine against the corona virus, which is also supported by the Union of Construction, Forestry, Mining, Energy and Maritime Affairs (CFMEU). On the first day of the protest, angry builders stormed the union headquarters, where they smashed windows, and the leadership barricaded themselves and retaliated by spraying them with fire extinguishers.
On the second day of the protest, protesters gathered in front of the union headquarters, and thousands of people dressed in work clothes marched through the streets of Melbourne, writes RT.

Some of the footage shows the protesters managing to charge the strong police forces, and then they retaliate by firing tear gas. Police also fired rubber bullets at protesters and sprayed them with pepper spray.
At least three police officers were injured, and more than 40 people were detained, said the head of the Victoria police.

Protesters also “occupied” the West Gate Bridge and blocked traffic on the highway of the same name.
The Victoria government stopped all activities in the construction industry after the first day of demonstrations, with the explanation “that discrepancies with health regulations were noticed”.
The citizens of Victoria, and especially Melbourne, have experienced some of the strictest lockdown measures in the world due to the corona virus.
