Key points: Three people have been arrested after an anti-vaccination rally in Mackay They have been given bail to appear in court in March Police are continuing to investigate the protest The so-called "freedom march" was organised for the Bluewater Quay park in Mackay on Saturday morning, but a group of protesters split off from the main group, marching to and through the nearby Caneland Central shopping centre. Queensland Police say they were notified of an unauthorised rally at a local shopping centre on Matsura Drive about 11am. Ujwal Shrestha, 25, was arrested at his Cremorne apartment by detectives from Strike Force Functional on Friday morning, then taken to Chatswood police station where he was charged with two counts of taking a person with the intention of committing a serious indictable offence, two counts of sexually touching another person without consent, and carrying out a sexual act with another without consent. "As officers approached the centre to assist security personnel, it will be alleged they were assaulted by a number of protesters," a Queensland Police Service (QPS) spokesperson said. While things may have looked normal on the surface – lunches were made for the kids the next day and bags were packed – there was a gnawing feeling growing in my stomach about the Monday market open. "Three men were arrested and charged and each has been bailed to appear in court in March. Credit: NSW Police Detectives began investigating a number of sexual offences on the North Shore with a similar modus operandi, and late last year used DNA to link two alleged offences." Anti-vaccination groups posted about the confrontation on social media app Telegram.

Protesters were wearing shirts with various slogans on them. “Investigations under Strike Force Functional are continuing. At the 11th hour, the Australian government came out on that Sunday night and and increase confidence so that they could continue to do business. ( Supplied ) Video footage shared online shows police and security blocking the entrance to the shopping centre from at least 100 protesters.

A 52-year-old man was charged with obstructing police. All three will appear in the Mackay Magistrates Court in March. What will 2022 bring? As we assess this uncertainty, the only thing I know for sure is that it will not be the last time we’ll find ourselves in this position. "Investigations continue with CCTV and police body-worn camera footage to be reviewed," the police spokesperson said. The spokesperson would not comment on whether any of those arrested had tested positive to COVID-19. "We note there is widespread community transmission at the moment," they said. We brainstormed all sorts of possible scenarios and worked through potential solutions.

"We have procedures in place to mitigate risk to our members in relation to the ongoing pandemic including vaccinations, PPE [personal protective equipment] and testing. "Those who attend protests are reminded of restrictions and requirements associated with COVID-19. Those who deliberately and recklessly ignore the CHO [Chief Health Officer] directions could face fines. When the path forward is unclear, there can be much to gain from considering different viewpoints." 'Mini brawls': shopkeeper A shopkeeper, who works in a store close to where the protest happened, said she briefly feared for her safety. "Little, mini brawls were happening between the public and protesters," she said.

"The protesters made it all the way down to the pop-up immunisation clinic in the centre. In addition, family and my support network were key at this time. "They tore shreds off [verbally] the nurses that were there … those poor nurses really copped it."

"Every single thing that we do is going to be peaceful," she said in a video livestreamed on the rally's social media account. Even if we are unsure about the decision, we should never be unsure about how to deliver the message – with honesty and transparency. "We are not going to storm the police station, we aren't going to lower our standards.

"We can be loud and proud and march through the streets, but we are not going to become lawless, aggressive or violent or abusive in any way." Police say they are reviewing body-cam footage of the protest as investigations continue. In recent years, we’ve seen the boundaries between asset class definitions blur and undergo structural changes, creating opportunities between the traditional silos which have the potential to yield more risk-adjusted return because they aren’t so picked over.
