Victorian Allied Health Professionals Association (VAHPA) Secretary Craig McGregor.
A couple of opponents gatecrashed the rally and attempted to intimidate the attendees by filming them. They were however soundly outnumbered and the rally proceeded undeterred.
The rally was attended by at least 2,000 people calling for the closure of the Manus Island and Nauru off-shore refugee detention camps.
