A man who addressed a large anti-vaccination rally in Sydney has died in a Covid-19 hospital ward. 
Aboriginal elder Max Dulumunmun Harrison was cheered at the ‘Millions March’ rally in Sydney’s Hyde Park on November 27 when he said politicians ‘deserve to be drowned’.
A Facebook page referred to him speaking ‘in front of a crowd of 200,000 united sovereign Sydneysiders’.
The actual attendance was around 9,000.  

Anti-vaxxer Max Dulumunmun Harrison has died in the Covid-19 ward of a Sydney hospital, two weeks after addressing and anti-vaccination rally

Also known as Uncle Max, he was a cultural adviser ‘on health and cultural-related issues’ for the Informed Medical Options Party (IMOParty), who promoted him as a key speaker at the rally.  
IMOParty confirmed Mr Harrison’s death. The 85-year-old died in the Sutherland Hospital on Saturday morning from bronchial asthma and underlying complications. 
Speaking at the rally two weeks ago, he said ‘ (I) don’t recognise the place up on the hill in Canberra, because they’re not a government, they’re a friggin’ corporation posing as a government.’
He said people had ‘no freedom’ due to Covid vaccinations and were ‘fighting to walk and talk for freedom’.
‘Each and every speaker here today, they’re doing nothing but speaking truth, and that’s what we want,’ Mr Harrison said of his fellow anti-vaccination speakers.
He compared being against Covid-19 vaccinations to war.
‘I’ve gone through the second world war and all the wars in between, but this is the most hardest friggin’ war that I ever got.’
Mr Harrison went on a tirade against politicians, saying ‘Yell at that b******* that want to jack those little kids. Your grandkids, your children. Your nieces and nephews. 
‘There’s not a jail big enough to put the b******* in. Walk them in chains. That’s what needs to be done … These b******* … deserve to be drowned,’ he said.
