    Riot Police End Standoff with Construction Worker Protestors at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance


    Police have shut down an almost three-hour standoff with protesters at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance, on September 22nd, moving in and making a number of arrests as hundreds dispersed towards the city centre.

    The protests started with members of the powerful Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) resisting a government mandate for compulsory vaccinations in order for them to continue to work on building sites. But they grew to include anti-lockdown and so-called “freedom” protesters.

    The video shows police overwhelming remaining protesters at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance.
