A group of anti-lockdown protesters have rallied in Melbourne today, with three men arrested.
Dozens of people came together at Eaton Mall in Oakleigh to defy the state’s stage four lockdown in place until midnight on Wednesday.
The largely maskless group clashed with police and became vocal towards them, swearing and shouting.
“A 40-year-old Huntingdale man was released pending summons for breaching Chief Health Officer directions and failing to obey police direction,” police said in a statement.
“Two men, aged 43 and 65, were issued with an infringement notice for breaching Chief Health Officer directions.”
Earlier the Reignite Democracy Australia group posted the gathering to its Facebook page.
“We will not comply,” the post read.
“Meet us here at 12pm today (Oakleigh).”
Victoria was placed into stage four lockdown on Friday and is expected to lift midnight Wednesday.
