Huge crowds of pro-choice protesters have gathered in the Australian Capital Territory to demand freedom and no more COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The demonstrators, who have travelled to the nation’s capital from across the country this week, marched from Canberra’s Glebe Park to Old Parliament house today.
The protesters descended on the grass this week as part of the Convoy to Canberra movement, objecting vaccine mandates and coronavirus restrictions.
Protesters displayed Australian flags and placards reading “no vaccine mandate” as they marched.
Speeches were given at Old Parliament House and the crowd sang along to I am Australian and others.
The group has moved towards Parliament House, where the demonstrators let their voices be heard.
The protest comes after ACT Policing ramped up its response to protesters camped out in front of the National Library of Australia.
Local officers, along with additional resources from the Australian Federal Police, began moving equipment and illegally parked vehicles from the Patrick White Lawns yesterday morning.
No arrests were made at this event and everyone has since returned safely to the new campsite.
The demonstrators vow they will stay “as long as it takes” until their demands are met.
