Pregnant mum regrets planning protest as top cop admits arrest was not a good look

Liberty Victoria has also expressed "deep concern" about the arrest of the pregnant mother, saying pressing charges to prevent a peaceful protest was a "disturbing development, irrespective of the current state of emergency".

"To describe this approach by police as heavy-handed is a gross understatement," said Liberty Victoria senior vice-president Sam Norton said, who added police could have considered different ways to approach the issue.
