Ultra Right Wing Anti Vaxers? I think not, typical behavior by this union. The ALP should distance themselves from these thugs.

So, no ultra right-wing anti-vaxxers protesting. Thanks for letting us know, coyote.
It looked like some of them joined in a legitimate protest and hijacked it, but
it's a relief to know it was only those crazy left-wingers stirring up trouble.  :)
Thanks for that.

Left Wings and Right Wings: both wings need to be clipped.

Personally, i don't care who they are or what their motive was, the Army and Police should have collected the WHOLE lot and bussed them to the most distant Magistrates Court in Victoria, which probably isn't all that far in Victoria.  Hopefully one where the Magistrate is on leave and they have to wait for her/him to get back.

Apparently only a relative few were arrested, from TV reporting.

One has to feel sorry for Dan. Who would seriously want to represent this rabble as Premier?????

More than 2000 protesters shouting anti-vaccination messages have marched through Melbourne's CBD, as the construction industry reels from a snap two-week shutdown imposed overnight.

Key points:
Police shut traffic along the West Gate Bridge as the crowd marched across the freeway
Several protesters identified themselves as CFMEU members opposed to mandatory vaccinations
Union leaders say far-right extremists have also been involved in orchestrating the protest
After spending several hours roaming around the CBD, the crowd marched down the West Gate Freeway, forcing police to divert traffic.

After marching onto the West Gate Bridge, the protesters turned back into the city and were met by a line of riot police, who appeared to fire tear gas or rubber pellets at the crowd.

Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Shane Patton said managing the mostly male crowd of around 2,000 people had proved challenging for the roughly 500 officers who responded.

"Any police force would have been challenged by the spontaneity and the sheer mass of numbers we saw from this group, and the tactics they employed throughout the day," Commissioner Patton said.

"Crowds like this, they're for cowards. Cowards who seek to hide their identity and conduct other activities, to do other things that if they were by themselves they wouldn't have the courage to do."

Now, that sounds like the ideal way to deal with protestors in a democracy. Get the army and the police to round up the whole lot. Right on, brother - oldtimer, sorry.

Law breakers should be treated to the fullest extent of the Law.

The Majority i.e. the Democracy should be disrupted in this way by mob rule.
Maybe we should blame Soccer. If we had Soccer Football established in this country as in Europe, the hooligans could beat each other up at football matches and let the majority of law abiding citizens get on with their lives.

Back to coyote's original post:

The CFMEU should distance itself from these thugs. Most of us ('The Majority) don't like that union, and probably with good reasons, but it does support vaccination, its state office was attacked, and its state secretary spoke against the protesters. That's a reasonable distancing from a protest that seemed a bit anti-vax to me. While stevo is googling for quotes on democracy, he can google for 'Melbourne protest organisers' or something like that. Give it a few days, stevo, once some of those arrested have fronted court, and we'll see who was involved.
 
I just had a google too. This is the first one that came up:

I don't really care what their handles are it was disgusting and criminal  behaviour.
If it was supposed to be a peaceful protest by some members of the CFMEU why did they not turn and walk away when the violence started?

I don't know. Maybe some did. Maybe "the majority" there had no connection to any union and various handles have been given to those who were there. I doubt anyone here supports the way that march/protest/whatever turned out, but the title of this thread, 'Disgusting CFMEU behaviour' is probably the wrong handle for it.

Can you share the proof you have of who was involved?

There was way too many brand new clean hi viz shirts and jackets, I reckon there was a spike in sales so a lot of non tradies could look like tradies.

Spot on, LG.

Nobody here is doubting that the behaviour was criminal and disgusting. The thread was about whose behaviour it was.

Well there was some CFMEU members, perhaps some other tradies and some "professional protesters."
There was certainly a lot of people wearing nice new tradie clothing.

Because they are ignorant, uneducated numbskulls.    ;D

Professional protestors looking for a fight! Disgusting behaviour and I highly doubt any professional tradie participated once it all turned to ****. Rubber bullets being fired at them is not enough, I would’ve deployed water cannons and the army.
