Cop It Sweet - Occupy Melbourne

by Anna Helme November 15, 2012

Over 1000 people marched from the State Library of Victoria to Treasury Gardens on 29th October 2011 as part of the ongoing Occupy Melbourne protests. Our boys and girls in blue were on the streets again, dodging criticism for the use of brutal strong arm tactics against the public when evicting the Occupy Melbourne protest from City Square on the 21st of October.
