Constructions workers in the state of Victoria were told by their union they’d be forced to get the coronavirus jab or face being fired, prompting major unrest in Melbourne.

In another slap to the face, the government then announced a two week shut down of construction work to punish the protesters.

Demonstrators hit the streets again today, but were met with yet more vulgar examples of police brutality, including one incident caught on camera where a protester who was already pinned to the ground was stuck by a knee to the back from a riot cop who took a run up.

Police again fired rubber bullets at protesters.

The letter also spelled out a quarantine rule for parents who still choose to vaccinate their children.
