Thousands attend Black Lives Matter rally in Melbourne

Thousands of protesters rallied in Melbourne, Victoria, on June 6, local reports said, to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and protest against racism towards Aboriginal Australians.

This footage shows people marching through the city on Saturday. Thousands of protesters took part in rallies in other Australian cities at the weekend, including in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Hobart.

Similar demonstrations have been held across the world after the police-involved death of George Floyd in the US late last month. Credit: @nouvelle_nomad via Storyful
