Victoria Police are on edge this morning with more anti-lockdown protests planned across the city over the weekend.

In the capital city of Melbourne, 74 people were arrested on Sunday and 176 infringement notices were issued for violating lockdown regulations which require residents to remain at home other than for essential reasons, reports Xinhua news agency.

"A demonstration boosting itself as a" Melbourne Walk for Freedom" was proposed for the Tan monitor at 11am on Saturday with a Facebook occasion revealing least 1500 individuals were thinking about moving.

Organisers have advertised the event as "a legal walk allowing citizens to come together, get healthy and talk about getting our freedoms back". There may also be protests in other locations.

Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius again urged Victorians not to leave home to illegally protest.

"All these are important police resources attracted from throughout our members and also our expert capacities, these are tools which are being removed from local communities which could otherwise be led to keeping the neighborhood safe".

Mr Cornelius said it was silly to justify protesting by calling it exercise.

"Do not take us for fools".

"No one is enjoying the reality we face, but none of us have the option of ignoring the reality that we face", he said.

Some 250 people took part in this illegal demonstration, responding to a call made on social networks by groups following conspiracy theories.

"Please help keep your fellow Victorians safe".

Mr Cornelius said he was "sick" of having to urge "selfish" Victorians not to illegally protest.

"It is incredibly frustrating and when individuals were selfish and a tiny bit more improved we would not need to continue doing so", the Assistant Commissioner explained.

One man believed to be a "primary agitator" is facing charges of incitement while another was charged with assaulting police, according to the statement.

"Plenty of people showed up, but the police planning prevented people from grouping up, so they had to scatter", they said.
