    Demonstrators in Melbourne clashed with police on Saturday after protesting the city’s strict lockdown rules. Melbourne was put under sudden restrictions when the cases of Covid-19 started climbing, despite months of very few infections. Protestors gathered across the country in solidarity with Melbourne. Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said to lift the curfew “would be five minutes of sunshine and then a third wave that arguably will be even more devastating than the second.” Dozens were arrested and a total of 81 penalty infringement notices were issued across the state at a cost of $1000 each.
