An anti-lockdown protest in the Australian city of Melbourne has turned violent. Police arrested demonstrators and used pepper spray as hundreds of people took to the streets.

Frustration is also mounting in Sydney. Despite being pretty much shut down for eight weeks, the majority of Australia’s coronavirus cases are being recorded there.
