In an unlikely duo, thousands of anti-child vaccination anti-vaxxers and protesters for the freedom of Novak Djokovic gathered.

A protest backed by United Australia Party leader Craig Kelly began Saturday in Victoria Park in Sydney’s CBD to challenge the vaccination of children.

During the protests, Kelly called for “an end to mandates and medical segregation,” along with waves of maskless protesters.

Protesters marched through the streets to end the introduction of the covid vaccine to children aged five to 11, which began on Jan. 10.

But in addition to signs saying ‘hands off the kids’, there were several signs calling for the release of tennis star Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic’s visa had been in limbo since January 5 when he attempted to enter the country without vaccination and with incorrect information on his entry form.

Late Friday night, the federal government made the decision to revoke the player’s visa for the second time on grounds of “health and good order.”
