Nearly two million Australians met in Canberra Saturday to tell all Australian governments, ‘No more Covid mandates we have had enough.’ Many of the protesters in the 1.5 klm long procession said they had been jabbed now realising they had been conned.
“Small short disruptions are occurring – often with protesters travelling in convoy from one location to the next,” ACT Police said.
“Disruptions to roads, paths, open spaces and public and private offices across the ACT are occurring.”
ACT Policing asked motorists to avoid Commonwealth Avenue on Saturday and warned delays and road closures were to be expected.
The Convoy to Canberra rally is expected to centre around Parliament House throughout the course of the day but there were concerns the protesters could infiltrate the AIS Arena mass vaccination clinic.
There is a police presence at the clinic to ensure Canberrans aged five to 11 are able to attend safely for their COVID-19 vaccination.
