Protestor Arrested After Scaling Parliament House 9 News

Police have arrested a wildlife protestor after a man, dressed in high-vis gear, scaled the roof of Parliament House in Melbourne.

The man dangled above the front steps of the building in Melbourne's CBD with a sign reading "Don't Fark the Kuark".

Other demonstrators also congregated at the steps of the building on Spring Street.

A crane was used to remove the man at approximately 11am.


Some of the other protestors are understood to have spread wood chips on the foot path.

The group were protesting to save the Murray River.

"Under the Andrews Labor government they have been logging native forests unlawfully and they're pushing some Victoria's iconic endangered species to extinction," Whistleblowers, Activists and Citizens Alliance spokeswoman Zianna Fuad said, reports 9 News.
