Anti-British monarchy protest in Australia

Protesters smear red dye over an emblem at the British Consulate during an anti-monarchy protest in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday. Hundreds of people protested at anti-monarchy rallies across Australia, even as the government declared a national day of mourning for the late Queen Elizabeth II. The public holiday was marked by protests that focused on the harm British colonization caused to indigenous Australians.
