An anti-lockdown protester has admitted his friends have deserted him over his controversial views about how Australia should be fighting the Covid pandemic. 

Romeo Georges was one of the more than 3,500 demonstrators who swarmed into Sydney's CBD on Saturday demanding an end the Harbour City's lockdown as it battles the highly-infectious Delta strain. 

Violent clashes erupted between police and unmasked protesters, who packed close together chanting anti-vax slogans and holding signs demanding freedom while spouting conspiracy theories.
