At times, protesters shouted “free Victoria” and “sack Dan Andrews” as they marched.
Many are displaying anger over the proposed bill that would allow COVID-19 rules to remain during global pandemics, rather than relying on state emergency powers.
People first started gathering in front of the State Library in Melbourne’s CBD.
Many carried signs with anti-vaccination sentiments and some against the government reading “dangerous new legislation”.
Melbourne police are at the scene.
A Victoria police spokesperson told 9News police are aware of the activity in Melbourne and that a high visible police presence will be there to ensure no COVID-19 breaches occur.
