‘Segregation Picnic’: Protesters make a statement outside St. Kilda restaurants

Dozens of demonstrators line the streets in front of Melbourne restaurants that forbid them to enter without proof-of-vaccination, saying they are being treated like “outcasts”.


Pro-choice advocates have gathered at a popular Melbourne dining strip to protest the state’s COVID vaccination rules that require proof of the jab before entry.

Stay-at-home orders were lifted for double-jabbed Victorians on Thursday, as the state reportedly hit 70 per cent vaccination coverage after more than 260 days in lockdown. 

Dozens of demonstrators lined Acland street’s dining precinct in St Kilda for a sit-in picnic protest on Saturday, calling for an end to ‘vaccination segregation’:

The group claimed the protest was for ‘every day people who do not want to be outcast for refusing the COVID-19 vaccination’. A number of signs were present on the day:

Victoria police confirmed it was aware of planned protests in Melbourne on Saturday and had an increased police presence in the area. One man was arrested for not following guidelines:

Hospitality venues, retail stores and beauty salons are only allowed to cater to double-jabbed residents since lockdown was eased on Thursday.

Premier Dan Andrews took a bold stance promising that unvaccinated residents would not enjoy the same freedoms until ‘well into 2022’. 

The fight for freedom continues in #OccupiedVictoria.

  1. The more people that refuse to go along with rules with resistance like this perhaps change will occur but if the violence and oppression already at play by the state and its enforcers has not been enough to persuade the populace action is needed to stop the tyranny, I don’t hold a lot of hope that picnics on the pavement will persuade the compliant to recognize the folly of believing the government is here to help them.

  2. My standard response to anyone asking about my vaccination status is, “Thank you for asking about my health! I am well thank you.” I like Novak Djokovics stance. It really isn’t anyone else’s business, but this is how the people in power work. Fear and herd mentality.

  3. Much more of this needed. Of course, can’t help the compliant sheeple from marching themselves to digital slavery and death by quax, but smarter, more courageous people need to increase non-compliance and ultimately live in parallel, freer societies than the digital dystopia being imposed.
