MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is investigating the positioning of dozens of signs along the path through Mornington Park on Sunday by anti-vax protesters.
People out enjoying the weather could not avoid walking past the confronting signs while a small group of anti vaxxers remained in the park to talk to onlookers.
The signs purportedly tell the stories of people who have had adverse vaccine reactions and claim that people are being “conned”.
One woman who took photos of the silent protest said she felt the signs were “misleading” and should not have been placed in a public space.
“I didn’t believe half of what they say, they are spreading false information.”
The mayor Steve Holland said it was not a legal protest and the shire was looking into it. He said anyone wanting to hold an event in a public space must first seek a permit.
