The chief architect of Melbourne’s week of destructive anti-vaccine protests has been charged with incitement.

Harrison Mclean, 24, was arrested at his home on Saturday morning while his followers clashed with police on a seventh day of violence.

The Monash University graduate runs the ‘Melbourne Freedom Rally’ group on encrypted messaging app Telegram used to mobilise anti-vax protesters.

Mclean used the channel, boasting more than 13,000 members, to promote and organise rallies against lockdowns and Covid vaccine mandates.

‘I have accepted bail conditions for release, which include following chief health officer directions, and refraining from promoting Freedom Events that contravene CHO directions,’ he wrote on Telegram early on Sunday.

‘After advocating for the freedom of all Victorians, incitement charges have been laid against me in relation to the events that took place at the World Wide Rally for Freedom 4.0 in Melbourne on September 18.

‘My legal battle now begins to continue the fight for freedom in Victoria, against the Andrews Regime.’

More to come.
