Victoria Police closed a popular Mornington Peninsula pier over concerns that locals and visitors were not “observing social-distancing requirements” just two days after thousands marched through the streets of Melbourne without penalty.
This come just days after the Victorian government and police allowed tens of thousands of protesters to march in the streets of Melbourne.
People would be “moved on” if they visited Rye pier and more local attractions would be shut if social-distancing was not observed, the police later said.
The apparent double standard in policing comes as health authorities consider lifting social-distancing restrictions more quickly and pressure mounts on states that let thousands of people march in Black Lives Matter protests on Saturday.

What have we become Australia?
