Australian Police arrested a dozen people Wednesday in Melbourne during the third consecutive day of tense protests against the Covid-19 measures and vaccination campaign.

Authorities since August have reinforced their presence in the city, the country’s second largest, which has been confined for almost a month following another Covid-19 outbreak. Monday saw a violent march and 62 people were arrested Tuesday during another protest.

About 300 people gathered Wednesday around the Shrine of Remembrance in central Melbourne, according to the first estimates by authorities, compared to the thousands who took to the streets earlier in the week.
