Update (19115ET): Anti-lockdown protests kicked into high gear around the globe on Saturday, including irate Irish protesters:

Bitter Brits:

Pissed-off Parisians:

And incensed Italians, where the country has restricted public access to restaurants and museums to the unvaccinated.

This is what it looked like today in Australia, Milan, London, and France.

Protests were worldwide today as many are fed up with elites whittling away their freedoms under the guise of COVID.

Thousands of anti-lockdown demonstrators took to the streets of Sydney and other Australian towns on Saturday to protest new lockdown measures amid a surge of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Dozens were arrested and charged after crowds broke through barriers and clashed with officers, hurling bottles and anything they could get their hands on.


The unmasked protesters marched from Sydney’s Victoria Park to Town Hall. News.com.au estimates 15,000 people took part in the march. Many chanted anti-lockdown slogans and held signs calling for “freedom” and “the truth.”

Footage on social media shows thousands of demonstrators marching through Sydney’s downtown area.

There was a significant police presence, including mounted police and riot control officers in response to what authorities said was an “unauthorized protest.”

The demonstrators defied restrictions on non-essential travel and mass public gatherings that could be extended through October.

The Greater Sydney area has been locked down for a month as infections rise.

Protesters were also seen in Melbourne and Adelaide.

There’s discontent with Australians being forced into lockdowns again as an outbreak of the delta variant began last month.

Protests are not limited to Australia. New COVID rules have been implemented across Europe as Delta infections flare-up, which demonstrators in France and Greece recently took to the streets. The UK has even triggered widespread panic through a new app that notified tens of thousands of people they must quarantine for ten days because of possible exposure.

Multiple US cities are now requiring people to wear masks indoors amid surging cases.
