Bloody protests explode in Melbourne after violent Milo Yiannopoulos critics are leaked location of secret show
Violent protests have erupted in Melbourne after Milo Yiannopoulos’ critics were leaked the location of his secret show.
Left-wing protesters descended onto Stubbs Avenue in Kensington, Melbourne’s north-west, on Monday afternoon ahead of the right-wing firebrand’s speech.
Police in riot gear were forced to intervene when verbal clashes turned physical between the protesters and Mr Yiannopoulos’s supporters.
Police used capsicum spray to subdue some of the more violent demonstrators.

Dozens of officers erected a battle line in an effort to separate the two protest groups.
About 150 people descended on the north-west Melbourne street, which has since been blocked, to protest against the UK-born political commentator.
Protesters could be heard chanting ‘Milo is a w**ker’ while others brandished make-shift weapons including a wooden club.
Milo Yiannopoulos touched down in Melbourne this week, for the third leg of his speaking tour.
The US-based commentator’s tour has proven controversial since it kicked off in Adelaide on Friday.
The self-confessed ‘troll’ and ‘provocateur’, has offended Muslim groups and women’s rights acitivists with his controversial opinions.
While he had his critics, Mr Yiannopoulos also attracted a cult following with supporters praising him for his opinions.
Mr Yiannopoulos’ first Melbourne event was due to kick off at 6.30pm, with another two scheduled the same night.
