TV reporter attacked and left bleeding from head as violent anti-vaxxers riot in CBD
A television reporter has been left bleeding from the head after having an energy drink can thrown at the back of his head by violent thugs taking part in yet another anti-vax protest in the CBD.
Paul Dowsley from 7News was also tackled to the ground and had urine poured on him from a water bottle during multiple confrontations while reporting from the scene.
The can split the back of his head open.
“That one really hurt,” Dowsley told 3AW.
A few hundred protesters have again descended on the CBD to cause trouble after the construction industry was shut down on Monday night.

CFMEU boss John Setka maintains the main agitators are not members of his union and are professional protesters pretending to be construction workers.
