The crowd is now taking to View Street.
BENDIGO community groups are preparing to make their voice heard over this year's federal budget.
They will gather at Trades Hall from midday today and march along View Street, Mitchell Street and down Hargreaves Mall to Liberal House on Bull Street.

More to come.
