BLACK LIVES MATTER!Police warn Melbourne Black Lives Matter protest at odds with coronavirus health directives Victoria Police will not fine people attending a Melbourne Black Lives Matter protest highlighting Aboriginal deaths in custody this weekend, but is warning the event poses a risk for coronavirus transmission. Police are expecting thousands to attend the protest on Saturday, which has been organised by members of Victoria's Aboriginal communities in response to the alleged murder of African-American George Floyd by a police officer in the US. The killing in police custody has sparked a wave of protests across the US, leading to the deaths of 13 people. Premier Daniel Andrews said on Wednesday Victoria Police had judged it was "simply not feasible" to fine or arrest demonstrators for breaching coronavirus restrictions, "particularly given there may be many thousands of people at this protest". Mr Andrews stressed the importance of the protest remaining "peaceful". "The only form of legitimate protest is a peaceful protest," he said. Source: abc.net.au
