An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 protesters, including anti-vaxxers, swarmed the streets of Melbourne on Saturday, in order to protest against further lockdowns and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

One topic of focused anger was the recent bill passed by the Victorian government, which gives power to the state’s premier and health minister to enforce further restrictions.

Australia reported its first Omicron case in Sydney this Friday after reopening its borders for the first time in months. Anti-vaccination protests have now become a weekly event, drawing in thousands of protesters.

Currently, 88 percent of Australians over the age of 16 are vaccinated, according to the Australian Government Department of Health.
