62 Arrested After Thousands March In Melbourne Against COVID Vaccine Mandates

Police say at least 62 were arrested after Melbourne saw its second day of anti-COVID lockdown and vaccine protests. According to police, 2,000 demonstrators descended on the city’s streets after a new mandate requires that construction workers be vaccinated. Officials announced a two-week shutdown of Melbourne construction areas, maintaining that worksites show compliance with health directions. Construction workers will be required to receive at least one dose of the vaccine before returning to work Oct. 5. The protests come after Australia reports record COVID case numbers.
