Hundreds of protesters have clashed with police in a 'Freedom Day' rally calling for Daniel Andrews to be sacked.
The crowd, carrying banners claiming COVID-19 is a hoax, had gathered outside Parliament on Tuesday morning, despite the city no longer being in lockdown.
Others carried signs which read: 'Don't trust the government'.

He was later seen being escorted away in handcuffs by several police officers.
