Live streams show ALL the various protests were just people marching together down various roads.
If they had not been met with walls of police "kettling" them, after a couple of hours they would have dispersed.
The police tactic was designed to provoke people to break through the police lines, which is exactly what happened.
This unnecessarily aggressive MO is designed to send a message to Victorians - you will obey the State.
However there will be exceptions if the State supports your cause - like BLM and the CFMEU.
I salute these courageous people walking on behalf of thousands more Victorians like me who now don't even have a sitting Parliament.
Rule by thugs.
